He played most of the game on Saturday with injured with a bad leg injury and will miss the next few games :READING:

And was still streets ahead of Dufty.

and in the mix for MoM in my humble opinion. Does anyone know when in the game the pull happened, my guess was the offside decision when Wire went 2-0 up?

Peet said it happened really early so you are probably spot on

On one of the highlight packages this week I think I noticed Field reach for his hamstring just after the early Warrington penalty was given (which they kicked).

We missed him last night, he is vital to our team performance.

6-8 weeks confirmed.

The only positive is there are worse times in the year for this to happen.

Hope we give Farrimond a shot at 6 this week then.

If he goes the full 8 weeks he would be missing for the run of 3 games in 10 days, so despite the international break he could be missing for a decent chunk of games and we also have a critical game in Saints at home coming up. We need to find a combination that works, and i am not convinced that Hampshire is included in it.

Had a read on the other site before, and somebody pointed out that he is playing jabbed up and injured? if that is the case then fair play to Hampshire for being willing to do that when the team needs him and it could explain his performances, but it also makes his selection even more baffling.

Will make finishing top a hard task but at least he should be back and firing for the playoffs.

Last year when he missed a similar length of time we opted for French at fullback, with Shorrocks/Hampshire in the halves.

French continues at full back for me.

He’s had a couple of bad performances and everyone’s getting on his back but I feel with a run a games Hampshire would improve and be a steady option.

Farrimond is also an option but seems like a Smith type player, kicker/general rather than a runner.

I would mind see Keighran playing 6, he played there a lot for Catalan last year and could be a running threat in that position. Eckersley’s pace and athleticism could benefit us in the centres.

Leeming in the halves is another option but can’t really recall how he played there for Leeds.
