    It's a knock out game so anything but a full strength team would be an unnecessary risk.

    The likes of Dodd, Simm, Batchelor etc will get game time as the season goes on so if Coote, Percival and Paasi are fit, they will play.

    I think Welbsy should play over Coote - I don’t think a knock out game is ideal for Cootes first game of the season doesn’t seem wise and we’ve been burnt by rushing Coote back before. Percival and Paasi play if fit though

    Best 17 fit and available, no question. It's a knock out game, no need to take any chances.

    This. We are 2 games in and there will be plenty of chances to rest and rotate later on.
    Forwards win games. The backs decide by how much.

    So im guessing were all thinking of sticking with welsby at full back. For me its his best position and he deserves to keep it after how he played the first 2 games

    Why would it be 'rushing' Coote back if he's cleared to play. Either he is fit or he isn't. If he is fit he should play. Keep it simple.

    I think that's a fair shout. He had a really poor game in the cup final 2 yrs ago after a long absence. Albeit so did plenty of others. I'd be conscious about putting him straight into a game like this based on that. Welsby was excellent last week. I expect coote to start but I can certainly understand the case for him not doing.

    Coote can come right back in with his experience. As mentioned there will be plenty of chances for the younger players as the season progresses.

    I suppose it all depends just how fit Coote is.

    I would go with our strongest side, there are no second chances in the cup. If we feel it may be an easy game all the more reason to play Coote and ease him into the season.

    It’s a cup tie - strongest 17 without a shadow of a doubt.

    I would probably have coote miss another week.

    Our next three games are Wakefield ,Hudds and Leigh. He can be brought back into the fold during them games.

    Few quotes from Woolf:

    On Coote - “He definitely will play this week, there is no doubt there.”

    On Percival - “We have got a couple of training sessions to get through but we are pretty confident on Mark Percival as well.”

    On Welsby - "He is a bloke who I think we will find a spot for somewhere - but that is somethinig I will finalise and make public later in the week."

    Paasi to return as well and Smith also available if he comes through concussion protocols.

    For me that sounds like Coote to full back and Welsby either onto the bench or at centre depending on Percival.

    Coote, Makinson, Naiqama, Welsby, Grace, Lomax, Fages, Walmsley, Roby, Lees, Thompson, Bentley, Mata’utia

    Subs: Paasi, LMS, Amor, Dodd

    Leeds have a second row in the centre and two forwards for half backs. No Gale.

    Leeds up to 12 out injured now. Absolute free hit for them, need to be professional and put them away as soon as possible.

    Wane making a point of telling everyone that we’re ‘not a flashy team’. Even the outdated myth that we are still the Saints of decades past is now dead as well.

    Wane is giving his team away here as well, he’s already basically said Tomkins and Lomax are 1 and 6, and he spoke quite positively about McShane as well although not exactly confirmed he will start him.

    Has attacking the kicker become a new tactic this year? I’ve seen it quite a bit in most games I’ve watched this year.

    Man names best English fullback and best English half as players in his team. Is his next exclusive going to be “water is wet”?
