    Default Wakefield team if the worst happens

    Good God we are running low on backs

    If the worst happens this week
    Hopoate out injured
    Matautia banned
    Welsby banned
    Percival injured
    Dodd injured
    Makinson injured
    Simm on loan

    There are going to be some changes and maybe some full debuts this week (ignoring games like Cas away)

    Just my stab in the dark and options I know about
    Full back - Bennison
    Winger - Hill?/Davies/Dont know
    Center - Hurrell
    Center - Davies/Batchelor
    Winger - Grace
    Stand off - Lomax
    Scrum half - Roby/?

    The real question is how can I look at that back line and still think it looks strong enough

    After Simms performance vs French on Friday I think Hull will happily let you recall him.

    Look at the back line and think we played a much better team than Wakefield with 12 men for the majority of the the game and beat them comptehensively.

    That should help

    Assuming we have;

    Injured; Hopoate, Makinson, Percival, Dodd
    Banned; Mata’utia, Knowles, Welsby*, Lees

    Bennison
    Hill** Hurrell Davies Grace
    Lomax Roby
    Walmsley Lussick LMS
    Sironen Batchelor
    Bell

    Paasi Norman Wingfield Pemberton**

    *having watched it again, it would be a nonsense for Welsby to get a ban.
    ** replace Hill with Martyn/ Sambou and Pemberton with Nolan depending on who you prefer

    Norman for LMS on the bench as he’s in there twice. Think Wingfield would start over Bell but the rest would still be a great team in a worst case scenario situation.
    Forwards win games. The backs decide by how much.

    What did Matty Lees do that you think will get banned for? Must have missed that

    I’d be disappointed if that team couldn’t beat Wakey.

    One blessing could be Lussick getting a full 80
    And maybe he would be better suited in the halves than roby?

    Could you not recall Kevin Nisbet from Leigh. He's slipped further down the pecking order since we signed Josh Charnley, even though he's also played in the 2nd row for us.

    I think you have answered your own question - why would we recall someone who lost their place to Josh Charnley?

    We actually have quite the glut of young three quarters (Sambou1, Hill and Martyn, as well as Sambou2, Haynes and Vaughan in the 19s) it’s just figuring out which are likely/ possible to get the game time. I think Hill is likely the closest to it

    According the Yarkshire lot he should be shackled for a month for a “late hit on the kicker”. Like Welsby I would be shocked if there was anything in it, but figured I would include it for the sake of worst case completeness

    Watched that game twice and still not clocked that one, think he will be ok

    Martyn isn't a first team player, he doesnt look like one either. I dont understand why people keep on suggesting he is in the picture outside of an "Easter Monday" team
    I could agree with you but then we would both be wrong.

    He trains full time with the team, is in the reserves squad and as you say, has made his debut this season. Whether he will make it I have no idea. But he’s certainly there as an option for a couple of weeks until Makinson returns.

    He also kicks goals , if that matters

    Pretty fair point. Simm isn't really in the picture I would think.

    If we are looking for a starting winger then it will probably be Hill, If we are going to rearrange the backline we probably need Sambou on the bench as he is more of a utility player.

    What did Welsby do btw? I must have missed that.

    Sadly all we can say is who knows, the disciplinary are a law unto themselves and what they choose to pull up and don’t choose to pull up is a mystery. All we can do is wait for Monday and adjust from there

    I would say one of the following;

    Bennison
    Hill Hurrell Davies Grace
    Lomax Welsby
    Walmsley Roby Lees
    Sironen Batchelor
    Wingfield

    Lussick, Passi, Norman, LMS

    Welsby
    Bennison, Hurrell, Davies, Grace
    Lomax, Roby
    Walmsley Lussick Lees
    Sironen Batchelor
    Wingfield

    Passi, Norman, LMS, Sambou (or maybe Pemberton)

    I think it depends on who the coach wants to take a look at next.

    He's not LOST his place to Charnley, more of a case that Lam feels he should play him (when Ferguson or Inu aren't). Young Nisbet has gone well for us, albeit in the championship
