    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

    Regardless who plays, i hope we smash the team that beat us in all those grand finals. No conservative play, no kicking to corners early in sets, no going easy on them. Smash them in defence, run them ragged in attack with some open rugby. COYS!!

    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.

    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.

    Coote to play with Welsby taking Simms place.

    Side note, I am a bit concerned with Percival and I do think he is going to be out for a while. Is it the same hamstring that he had the operation on? If it is I do fear he may not be the player he was before the op.

    I don't think Percy has played the full 80 in any game since the first game of last season. It is a bit of a worry

    Most likely option with Welsby going to full back if the game is won on 60 mins and Coote goes on the bench. Seem to remember Woolf mentioned at the time Percival had a knock rather than a strain, but we havn't got any updates.

    I’m not concerned about Percivil he is fit when he is fit, if it takes a couple of months so be it. He is the best centre at the club and probably the best in the league. Gildart has had his injury problems at Wigan and I don’t see him getting grief.

    I don't think he is getting grief at all. Everyone wants a fully fit Mark Percival in their squad. Hamstring injuries are just potentially so career changing, especially ones that need operating on. Just look at Michael Owen's interview on BT Sport, he said he was never the same player and was scared to make a run incase he injured himself again. As for Gildart, maybe it is indeed because he plays for Wigan and we just don't care?

    I'd worry about history repeating itself if either Coote or Percival play. Last season we brought Percival into a big cup game without him proving he can manage 80 mins beforehand. Lo and behold he went off in the first half and it cost us the game moving the team around.

    I'm less worried with Coote given he's not dealing with a recurring and notoriously niggly injury, but playing Percival this weekend would be a firm no from me.

    If either play then we at least need Welsby on the bench so we've got someone to fill in without pulling others out of position.

    Coote is an ultimate professional, with nothing to proove, he plays well in every game , Welsby has done well in his 2 games so far 'but' the lad is still under pressure to proove he has the 'quality' to be considered as an automatic choice in the first 13 to put a shirt on = Coote is without a shadow of a doubt in that 13 , Coote will play with Welsby in the Squad . Welsby will be in that first 13 for many years to come , Coote with age will slowly move down the pecking order .

    I’m not sure why we would go with a rotated side for a cup game against a half decent Super League side, injuries or not.
