Reading between the lines on the club injury update I’ll be surprised if Craven or Smith play on Sunday. Owens would have been an obvious replacement for one of them but is definitely out. Leaving Lyons at scrumhalf and a dilemma for stand off.
Brown - Played in the halves before but not since he signed for us.
Fozard - Has a fair bit of halfback experience but would disrupt the side by not being at hooker. Hulme and Brown could possibly spell at 9?
or take a punt on someone like Fleming or Tyrer in the halves? Tough call.
Fozard played quite well for Wales at HB against France. Not averse to him playing there.
I think Fleming has played well at FB, so I would be minded to play Owens with Lyons personally to see how Owens does at Stand Off.
I would have played Owens there as well but the club has said he could be out for four weeks with his hamstring issue.
In that case Fozard?
I think we will be looking at
I bet Foz will be chuffed if they spell the hookers. He’s had all season doing 80 mins there, then he’ll be played in the halves and have to do eighty there 🤣🤣🤣
if you didn’t laugh you’d cry. We’ve got a full blown injury crises, but nowt to lose and not much to win.
I can’t see many other options than your 6/7/9/13 @hans-moleman. Playing for pride and please no more injuries or suspensions.COYV 🏁
Foz and Lyons will be in the halves as for Jack in the halves that's a giggle he is far better where he is at the minute, huge waste of money IMO.
Jack is out injured probably anyway.
Holmes not a bad option at all and I think he's played for JK at Batley in the past.
Could see a situation where he replaced Gilmore at Batley if Gilmore came back to us as rumoured.
Craven and Smith could still play on Sunday, the club said they will be assessed during the week, along with Baker.
Yes, but almost every time this phrase is used the player doesn’t feature!
No chance both of them playing.
Both named in squad
So are we back to naming unfit players again? And is Roberts banned or not ?
