    A decent squad – oh if only we had Logan Tomkins or Brad O’Neil playing…

    We can still win given a level standard of refereeing.

    A hat-trick from Lawton!

    Without Brough Bradford aren’t anywhere near the same threat as they have been.

    As someone said just keep giving him loads of short balls from close range out wide.He’ll score 7 times out of 10.And use him as a dummy too.Easy enough in theory, mind.

    Use Lawton as the new Mick Nanyn!

    Hooker is the position of concern, we have enough forwards IMO to deal with Bradford’s pack…

    What’s pleasing about it is that teams are clearly targeting Lawton; yet still can’t stop it happening which I think is contributing to increasing Lawton’s confidence as well. I reckon we could go to it more.

    Lawton is a mad one, I know he is only playing championship level bit considering he had nearly six years out of the game and he is playing unbelievable well. Imagine, if he had a better head on him as a youngster, I don’t think it is hyperbolic to suggest a 6ft7 try scoring, ball playing second-rower with hands like a halfback could have been an international by now.

    It is interesting that Lawton has gone from zero to hero this season and deservedly so. His defence needs to improve, but I have no doubt that if he continues to perform as he has been in recent games, we will have a problem in hanging on to him for next season.

    I wonder if we are planning on making a real effort to improve in 2022, with a realistic chance of promotion to SL, will the club be considering trying to retain some players with improved part-time contracts or maybe full-time contracts. Of course, all this depends on the club’s financial position and the level of central funding.

    As for the game tomorrow, I can see us ending the Yorkshire hoodoo with a hard fought win by maybe by 10 points,

    Hope you’re right. I’m inclined to be less confident given my experiences watching us away in Yorkshire over the last few years. Think it could be a tough afternoon for us.

    Doubt it.I think his chances of the big time have probably gone.Not sure he wants it anyway.

    If we get anywhere near winning in these circumstances we will have done well. Bradford by 28. Hope I’m wrong obviously.

    Tyrer for a spell in the 2nd row?

    Brookes came on and played in the pack last week, perhaps he will do the same?

    We’ve been playing well lately so I am hopeful we will put up a performance.

    Brookes did well under the circumstances but we were only able to use him for around 10 minutes. Guess Tyrer having a spell in the pack is an option but not ideal having to play our best centre in the forwards.
