    Squad:

    Owens, Hatton, Spedding, Tyrer, Cross, Craven, Smith, Cook, Grady, Lawton, Baker, Farnworth, Lyons, Roby, Edge, Else, Tilleke, Hill, Brookes, O’Neill B, Robson.

    So Clough out Cook in, still looking threadbare in the front row.

    Virtually full strength,  first choice back line. Missing Clough with concussion which is a blow, Tompkins long term plus Dwyer and Jewitt.  Problem for me is the bench, not enough forwards, only Lawton and Tilleke, need at least 1 extra aggressive experienced forward to bring on.

    You are always going to have 2 or 3 injured in Rugby League though, especially in the pack, so that squad is about as good as it gets this season.

    A pack of Cook O’Neill Farnworth Grady Robson Baker with Tilleke Lawton Else and Lyons on the bench looks OK to me on paper. In the modern game there seems to be an obsession with positions. These days props play no role in the scrums and are basically used as battering rams to gain metres. Isn’t Lawton big enough to take on this role?

    There are two 20 year olds in the Leeds squad tonight – Walters and O’Connor – who in different circumstances would have been in the Widnes squad. Would they have been old enough for us? York name 4 props in their squad including a 22 year old.

    Is the team good enough to beat York? Based on recent performances probably not. York were predicted to be contenders for SL,  but have not had a brilliant start to the season themselves, winning just two games and losing three.

    I’d argue it’s not the best use of Lawton to play him in that role though he ought to be capable of it in theory.

    Lawton’s got a heart the size of a pea, irrelevant of his physical condition. He falls into the Tennis twins category 👯‍♀️

    Now Now Adam, calm down.

    To be fair, I never thought I’d agree with Capey but he has a point.

    Lawton is massive, is very skilled for any size let alone his and is a wrecking machine when he applies himself, but….. he’s a big lazy crunchie with no heart.

    I’d Adam reads this, take heed, grow a pair, man the fudge up and get angry or you’ll lose yet another chance at making it.

    I think York will win, but I don’t think they’ll have it all their own way. To be fair, they  have thrown a lot of money at their recruitment, and pushed Fev last week to the hooter.

    All I ask is that 1-17 we give it our best shot, 100%. If that’s not good enough, so be it.

    Spot on. As long as there is effort and commitment then I won’t ask for more.
