According to the post match interview walmseys shoulder still not 100 % and had a very physical game against Widnes and knee fev would be extremely physical so rested him , also said McComb wouldn’t get battered and got that right , personally think McComb deserves his shot in the playoffs, worthington looked off to me yesterday and carries no threat with ball in hand , McComb broke the line in the 1st five mins and put hall on his booty in the last two .


Playing a winger against somebody the quality of joey at centre would be madness. I think McComb deserves a spot after yesterday but he would be in for Salty for me. Walmsley has to play, he has that xfactor so it comes down to Salty and McComb for the other wing spot. Having a top defender outside of Keyes makes perfect sense and if that were to change then it would be an obvious place for teams to attack us. Its going to be interesting to see who Grix brings in to replace Worthington assuming that he would have been on decent money.

Agree walmsey must play then it’s a casing point for the rest.

Let’s say for hypothetical reasons we get to the semi final everyone is fit bar tibbs . I would play walmsey, arundal , McComb, salty . I would play McComb against the other centre. Barber on the bench . Missed him yesterday has he can play second row and centre , it meant gee playing centre for most of the game . Whilst worthington is great defensively and has good distribution and quick play the ball he offers no threat offensively. Arundal has improved has the season has progressed where I don’t feel worthington has .

Yes it’ll be interesting to see who replaces worthington as it’ll be probably arundal - tibbs starting centres .

Looks like the fax vs York game has been chosen for the televised broadcast for premier sports . With the queen’s funeral being on the Monday the game will kick off at 5:30pm on the Sunday.

I could make an argument that his winger has scored 20 odd tries this season. I don't see that happening if McComb plays as his centre.

McComb is very dangerous in open field with his quick feet and speed. I think though he is too lightweight to defend as a centre. There is a reason top sides have big centres that can nullify the opposition and hopefully put a winger into a little space.

Arundel has been Lachlan's centre most of the season due to Worthington been injured from beginning of season, then his suspension

What is the try split for Walmsley for when Arundel was his centre to when Worthington was his centre?

Is Joe enjoying his time at Fax? Hopefully he is good to go next week.

Brilliant by batley showing us the way forward yet again . Manning was one we should have never released the guy just tackled for ever .
