    League Express have us 6th, with Toulouse, London, Leigh, Featherstone and York above us……..

    That is broadly in line with the bookies…

    What do people think, with 2 weeks to go?

    For me, we will be between 4th and 7th dependent on injuries and if we get the extra prop/loan players…

    If we do, I am confident with our coach we can make the Play-Offs….

    <p style=”text-align: left;”>Dunno. Not convinced yet about our pack. I’ll reserve my judgement till after the Batley game, they’re normally a decent yardstick of where we’re at.</p>

    I think we will make the top 5, as long as we don’t get loads of injuries like we did a couple of seasons ago.

    Hard to answer with the question of DR/loan players as yet unanswered. Top five would be a yes with two or three more additions to the squad.  As things stand I’ll say 6th/7th. Toulouse will likely finish top.

    I reckon we’ll finish in the top 3.

    Around 8/9/10 th. Forwards look weak compared to teams above plus Widnes in recent times always find a way to underperform hence the 6th less a few. Sun v NWC was best side maybe………….nothing to frighten the top half of the division there.

    5th or 6th for me. Need 2 props and an experienced centre to finish higher.

    London and Tolouse top 2, im going for Featherstone to pip Leigh for 3rd place as impressed with their signings. Leigh 4th and York 5th, York like Feathetstone had a good year last year and have added 3 to 4 quality signings to that squad.

    4th,5th or 6th. Anything lower would be disappointing.

    Peace and love, and happiness and stuff!

    I would say 5 to 7 depending on loans / any new signings. Also on how good our defence is particularly of our centres & wingers which is yet unknown & all players in those positions have come from lower sides that regularly shipped points against eg Barrow.

    If we’ve any headroom left on the headcount please have a look at that Rodden fella who scored that intercept on Sunday. A good size backrower with real pace – our backs never got near him!

    Good though he looked there, if we have the cash for one good signing it really ought to be an experienced and aggressive prop.

    Around 6th I’d say.

    Cant believe we’re going into the season with only 4 props. We got bullied last year at places like Fev and Sheffield and we’ve done virtually nothing to improve this. Arguably gone backwards with losing Cahill and Hansen.

    Moran looks a good player and Farnworth is a year older so will be more involved. But we need to sign 2 more props. With the high impact in the middle you often get injuries not to mention suspensions.

     

    Part of the problem was playing backrowers like Cahill and Hansen in the front row last year as they just don’t have the size of an out and out specialist front rower.  The Chapephows, Moran and Farnworth are all props that can do long minutes and could start the game. What i would like is a big impact prop that can come on and do two 20 minute spells and really punch some holes into the defence, get some go forward and tire the opposition out.

     

    The problem is everyone else is looking for someone like that as well. Even Leeds, Warrington and Hull KR are all after a front rower at the moment so it’s going to be difficult for us to get someone of quality in.
