What I believe is our strongest 17 compared to how I actually think Wane will line up is slightly different.

I would go

1.Escare
2. Davies
3. Sarg
4. Oli
5. Budgy
6. Sam
7. Williams
8. FPN
9. Tommy
10. Benny
11. Faz
12. Bateman
13. Lockers

14. Powell
15. Clubby
16. t
17. Joel

I actually thing WANE will have them line up as follows

1.Sam
2. Davies
3. Sarg
4. Oli
5. Budgy
6. Williams
7. Tommy
8. FPN
9. Powell
10. Benny
11. Faz
12. Bateman
13. Lockers

14. Escare
15. Clubby
16. t
17. Joel

Every time I think of a best 17, I get to the starting props and bench props and get stuck. I have pretty much no faith in any of them.

To have not signed an out and out prop (counting Hamlin as more of a loose forward) this off season on the back of the performances from the lot of them last year is pretty staggering.

IMO FPN is by far our best prop and last season he was playing how Wane wanted him play, it wasn't good and any impact he had the previous season gone. Even though I like Clubb, Sutton & Tautai they would struggle to get in to a top SL starting side, as you said when it comes to our props we have issues. If I was a prop at Wigan and Wane continued to pick his mate i'd leave like Crosby

As has been said, the way we played last season was the reason for our props and therefore the team's downturn in form.
Play to our strengths and I think we have a front row to match anyone's.
If we don't change and improve then 2018 could be another troubled season.
Get it right and anything is possible as basically we have a very good squad.

I'd go:

FB Escare
RW Davies
RC Sarginson (assuming Gelling is gone)
LC Gildart
LW Burgess
SO Williams
SH S.Tomkins
P Nu'uasala
H Leuluai
P Flower
SR Bateman
SR Farrell
LF O'Loughlin

S Clubb
S McIlorum
S Tautai
S J.Tomkins

Nu'uasala is so frustrating, one very good game then three full of surrender tackles. Very nearly had Sutton or Isa in there instead.

I think (if we are to lose Gells and Micky) we’ll see Sam move to 6 and Escare to 1. This is logical.

We need a kicker, Escare is a kicker.
We need creatively and spark in the halves, Sam has creativity and spark.

Only issue with this is defence. Sam is a far better organiser thab Escare.
