    I think we will see:

    Coote
    Makinson
    Naiqama
    Simm
    Grace
    Lomax
    Fages
    Lees
    Roby
    Graham
    Bentley
    Taia
    Knowles

    Eaves
    Amor
    LMS
    Peyroux

    Paulo, Dodd, Welsby and Wingfield miss out.

    There's a case for Welsby or Dodd to take that "14" role too so it could realistically be any of those 3.

    I think that will be the team,like you say there is that one spot that could go to a number of players. I think it will be between Dodd and Welsby who gets it

    I agree, I think he will sneak ahead of Smith in the pecking order personally.

    I think Batchelor went off with a bit of a bang to his head on Monday.

    Smith took a head knock on the Monday night so I think he goes Eaves on the bench. Don't think Dodd or Welsby will be on the bench for this one.

    I'd be happy with that selection.

    Aye. Smith is a good opportunist 9 but from the bit of Eaves i saw he looks like one of those natural 9s that can lead a team around the pitch. The sort of 9 who can call the plays from acting half and not wait for instruction from other players.

    Yeah - he has a habit of getting his head in the wrong place when tackling. He needs to change his technique before he does himself some serious damage.

    Agreed he seems to offer more variation in his plays which offers more space if defenders cant read what's coming.

    Bit disappointing I'd say, seemingly gone are the days when you could play for your shirt.

    Absolutely, good shout, he seems to always want to play Welsby somewhere though but I can't fit him anywhere.

    He seems to get a head knock in every game, Eaves has not had much luck with injuries as well. Just shows how the durability of Robes takes some beating.

    16 of that team picks itself. Itll come down to the last bench spot between Eaves, Dodd & Welsby. I think Id rather have the hooker cover on the bench for this one though so Eaves to play for me. Should be full of confidence after a good outing against Salford.
    Forwards win games. The backs decide by how much.

    Maybe not being the starting hooker for his first few seasons has ended up extending Robys career at the top.

    Don’t see the point in playing this now. The season is done, stick a fork in it. Give us and them some time off and let’s go at the play-offs properly, not sleepwalking through meaningless games for little reason.

    True enough, he did, so would almost certainly have been getting another one.

    Depends who's covering the refund we'd owe Sky for not fulfilling our contractual obligations for the weeks with no games. Maybe thats where expanding the playoffs would sweeten the deal for them but then increases the risk of the playoffs being affected by positive tests. There's no easy solution with any of this I don't think

    Agree with the team above. We’ll need an extra forward to cover for Big Al so no room for a back on the bench. Only other possibility is Welsby for Simm at centre. Welsby had a good game there last time

    I'd go with that but got the feeling Welsby will get the nod at left centre and Dodd will get the last spot on the bench.

    Also extended KC for his last 5 years.

    I'm guessing you're feeling is correct not that I agree with it but he seems keen to play Welsby whenever & wherever he can, can't say i understand it especially after a poor showing on Monday.
