Said well before the season kicked off that we needed another prop or two and an effective second hooker. Not seen anything since to alter that view.
How many years have we been talking about this? Since Eamon O’Carroll was a lad at least. I know the title is only a joke, but Sheens is trying to work with what he’s got. A small, mobile pack that suits summertime pitches ain’t much help on Yorkshire gluepots in winter (or 4G artificial pitches at home for that matter).
Important thing for Sheens is to ensure this group don’t start games expecting to lose.
I think maybe Jacob Dugdale has been injured. He didn’t play for the reserves last week and they promoted a youngest age Academy Player into the halves for the Reserves. If we haven’t got another 9 at the Club Dec Patton has played 9 off the bench in Super League also maybe try to get Danny Walker on Dual reg.
