    Going off Holbrook's comments in the star,then i would imagine the same team as played Wigan with Bentley and Richardson to miss out

    I think fages is better defensively than Richardson but maybe not as effective in broken play. Maybe Holbrook is looking for a more defensive performance.

    I can only imagine that would be the case barring any knocks

    I sawichardson in the 19s and his game management was very good. I'd say this and maybe his kicking is his main reason he was preferred to Fages last season.

    Fages brings other benefits to the team which Holbrook must prefer currently, and if he manages to manage the team well Richardson may struggle to get his place back

    Some time having to fight for hos position may improve Richardson

    We're playing on heavy pitches at the moment, which suit the game Fages can bring, more than they do Richardson's

    That likely plays some part in the thinking
    I f*cking hate wi*an.

    The pitches might be heavier but in the poorer conditions I’d much rather have Richardson’s kicking ability. Neither Fages or Lomax are good kickers and, whilst Coote seems to be a good kicker, teams will soon wise up to him as a kicking option and start blitzing him on the last tackle.
    Forwards win games. The backs decide by how much.

    Depends where on the field we are,Fages has a very good short kicking game. Teams pressured Richardson's kicking last year and he was rushed a lot on the last tackle,Coote however is a veteran player and will give himself room.
