    That is a very good point actually. But maybe someone needs to tell Percy to grow a pair and start kicking again.
    Humans are more concerned with having than being.

    Itís not just goal kicking either. Without him weíre relying on Fages and Lomax for our kicking game, which would be hit and miss, to say the least. Having said that, for all his ability Richardson has been a disappointment in that area too.

    Yesterday proved what we all already know, we can win whilst not having to play particularly well, the recent Warrington and Wigan games being my case in point

    Lomax at 6.
    Tommy Mak at fullback.
    Swift on the wing.
    Best option I think personally.

    I would agree with this, but at Wembley it could come down to goal kicks.

    Holbrook said he’ll be out for a few weeks yesterday so imagine his first game back will be the final.

    Isnt Zeb due back this week? Slightly off topic but that will help us with the ball, he is huge for our left edge. Would guess Knowles will be back too. Competition for places is about to hot up in the pack again

    Did someone say they saw him in a knee brace yesterday, in the dressing room celebrations he seemed OK in a casual track suit.

    Default Coote Injury

    No doubt at all Coote was missed yesterday at full back, Lomax had a decent game at full back, no link between Lomax and the two half backs. When Coote is at full back Lomax is a quality half back for me, Fages is a much better player with Lomax at 6.

    I thought JH said coote would miss a coup more games that would mean he would get a game before the final hopefully this will be the case. Hop Knowles will be back against Wakefield and zeb against wankey. All teams have injuries and a couple shouldn't derail us.

    Yeah in the league express Holbrook says Coote won’t play next week but doesn’t know about the week after

    You could clearly see a knee brace under his tracksuit. Have a look at the team photo after the game if you can find it. Hopefully itís just a precaution to aid his recovery time.

    If you zoom in a bit you can see the knee brace. Like I say itís probably just for precaution.

    Thought Lomax was really poor at 1. Failed to link up in the line for most of the game and when he did his timing was way off.

    First time there for a while in a strange game when you play a championship side, I wouldn't judge his performance in that position to quickly

    I’d put that down to the fact that one of our basic moves is shifting the ball through Knowles then behind a dummy runner via Lomax/Fages to Coote. With Paulo replacing Knowles and rarely/never passing behind the dummy runner, plus Lomax obviously not being the next link, the nature of our ball movement to the full back changed significantly, hence the restricted room available to Lomax once he received the ball.

    I thought that was the worst I have seen from Lomax in a while. Put him at 6 and I think he is the best in SL including Austin.

    On the match day I thought he was very poor, watched the replay again he didn't really create much, all our pivots were not all that creative we had to rely on Roby's two skill plays.

    Zeb will be the first back, but the other 2 will be closer to the Final. I'd expect both to featurr against Leeds.

    To be fair to Holbrook, I think he got the selection right given the conditions. The attack wasn’t brilliant, I thought LMS struggled a bit and was out of position a couple times when we tried to shift the ball but defensively Lomax is always solid at 1 and was so again at the weekend. In those conditions you’re always one mistake away from conceding a try and in reality, that was the only way they were going to score. They didn’t get anything out of Lomax from a kicking point of view, they may have done with someone else at the back.

    That said, I’d be switching Lomax back to 6 on Friday and bringing someone else in at full back.
