That back 3 would not be good enough in the division below

Newman on the wing for me.

Why Handley is or was up to recently SL top try scorer.
If anyone should be dropped for Newman based on form it would have to be Watkins.

Whilst I agree that Newman had a good game last week and looks like a very good prospect, let's not forget the opposition on that night. That was no result to base any of the changes in the line up.

Good point.
He has potential but let`s not get carried away just yet.
He has played well when selected recently.
Unfortunately as was the case with McDermott certain players will rarely get dropped and will stay in the team until they get injured

He didn't just do his job though. He excelled over the other players, and therfore for me at least, he has earned the shirt. Especially considering the form of his competition in the squad before this. It is not as if they were doing enough beforehand to earn their shirt and therefore keep it.

Newman looked really good, even allowing for the poor opposition, while playing centre, and that is where he should be selected imo.
Woody: Can I pour you a draft, Mr. Peterson?
Norm: A little early, isn't it Woody?
Woody: For a beer?
Norm: No, for stupid questions.

if Newman is in over anybody it would be over Watkins and that's due to watkins poor form.

Watkins is getting through a lot of defence at the moment, and making his tackles. He's also a good passer of the ball, even if he lacks confidence and pace after his injury.

I'd potentially consider bringing Newman in on the wing to begin with - in current form I'd back him to do more with one of Watkins' flick passes than Briscoe. Hardaker and Watkins both started on the wing for Leeds... Handley at least has a good partnership with Hurrell, although I'm still not convinced he's the requisite quality for a club of our ambitions.

Personally I would play Watkins At centre, however I can see the case for Newman getting a game. If Newman played at 3,I would still play this current version of Watkins lite with a fridge on his back before JJB or Donaldson, as Exeter said for his tacking, passing, skill and game awareness.

Have to say I am worried how we will hold their props and leeming. our left of ferres, Koni and handley could have a tough time if hudds replicate what they did v cas. It will also be a big defensive test for Tui at Fb. Could
Be a very grim weekend.
