    Lomax to Full Back, Richardson to the halves with Fages. Don't see the point in risking Welsby regardless of whether it is Halifax or not. Richardson has played enough this season for it not to be that much of a disruption.

    True but there is a London thread i'd have thought would have been more suitable for discussion about our results against London rather than the Coote/Semi thread.

    I didn’t think he had a particularly great game that night to be honest. Seemed to remember he put a couple of balls down and kicked dead twice. Remember Lomax and Coote having good games. Not sure if I’m mixing my games up there.

    Wakefield in the Cup I thought he played well. I thought he was much more controlled than in the other games he’s played this year.

    If I’m honest though, I’d like to see Welsby get a go but I think he will go with Richardson.

    Holbrook does seem to like to give young players a run for a few games rather than moving the squad around so I suspect for the Halifax game he may well stick with Welsbyand see how he goes.
    If we'd have been playing Hull or Wire he most probably would have gone for one of the safer options

    We can joke but we should be putting Halifax to the sword, and putting the fear of god into Hull or Warrington bsfore the final.

    With a decent kicker, 4 points become 6 more often than not...

    This is probably the only the second debate like this we've had all year as an injury in any other position is normally a straight swap because our squad depth is so good

    No disrespect to Halifax but I don’t think we need to be playing mind games or keeping them guessing. To be fair to Holbrook he’s a straight talker normally and I don’t recall him playing games with player availability in the past. Not sure why he’s start that now.

    I’d be absolutely amazed if Coote plays.

    Was rumoured last night on the Saints fans facebook group that Coote is out for six weeks. Hopefully nonsense!

    I'd heard he was out for 4 weeks but would be back for Wembley (if we get there).

    I donít believe he will play either, but Iím not sure why he would say he Ďmight not playí if we are now hearing Coote is out for 4-6 weeks (social media).
    Iím not overly concerned but admit I have not recovered from last years semi and am unduly nervous about Saturday. Iím convincing myself that Saints are taking Halifax lightly which has now been exasperated by the fact that England cricket team are now 43 for 7 against Ireland...So it can happen.
    I still have to be convinced that JH does not get the jitters in big games..The first sign will be tomorrow when the squad is announced. I expect nothing more than 2 changes (if knowles is not fit) anymore and I will worry..
    I had a dream last night that Tommo and Alex were on the wings and Fages was propping!

    Haha. Without wanting to sound too cocksure, it would take at least 2 red cards for us to lose this game on a Saturday. I believe Holbrook will play his strongest possible team and take no chances. I’m not remotely nervous at all to be honest. Unfortunately for the neutral I think it’ll be one sided affair and a bit of a disappointment after what should be a cracker between Hull and Warrington.

    Lomax at full back with Richardson alongside Fages offers us the most consistency in terms of our style of play. Coote has very much operated as an extra half back in attack and though Makinson is a huge threat running with ball in hand he has not got the hands to slot into Cooteís role. Putting Makinson in at full back completely changes the way we have to run all our attacking plays and I donít see that doing us any good when itís been so effective so far.

    I donít understand a lot of the dislike on here for Richardson. He can be a bit headless on the last play sometimes but thatís partly his age and experience, at least he takes on the responsibility. His defence is much improved on last year and in a tight game thereís no-one at the club Iíd rather have stepping up for a touch line conversion or last minute drop goal.
    Forwards win games. The backs decide by how much.

    Yep, Makinson at 1, Swift on the wing and Fages/Lomax in the halves, though, I think we’ll see Lomax at 1 with Richardson and Fages at 6/7.

    I've heard the same? Hope he's back for it, IF, we get through (;

    If Coote is out for some weeks we might need a longer term fix, which might be Welsby at fb; though perhaps not this week.

    If the coach sees Welsby as second choice full back, which he has done thus far this season, then he should be in the team for the semi final. As YG says, Saints shouldn't be over thinking this one and should win easily. Simple as that.

    Disagree, thats just a generic generalisation.
    Richardson has played more than enough games to learn from his mistakes but doesn’t show enough learning from his mistakes. He looks too similar to the kid who made his debut. Needs to cut out the stupid plays, be a tram man and understand his trade better.

    Spot on. If Coote is out for a few weeks and Welsby is second choice FB, then he should get a decent run filling in for him. The experience of Saturday will do him good in the long run.
