The team for sunday is going to be grix at 7, McNally fb, robbo back to 9, Wood on bench to replace robbo, LOD back!!!!!! and Bruno to play second row!! Will anyone know where they should be in the defensive line???

I can't help thinking that with success comes complacency.

Blimey! That is a lot of changes. I thought Robbo would be at 9 with Lunt & Fooey injured but didn't think Grix at 7 or Bruno in the pack (although I did think Bruno would be back in the three quarters).


I've no idea what will happen on Sunday now. What do you mean that's nothing fresh?!

Sounds as if the Bruno switch may be a regular thing

Hope he's (Nathan) not overreacting here to one defeat against the best side in the comp who upped their intensity.It might work this weekend,but with such a huge clash coming up at Warrington,think I'd have been looking to keep the changes to a minimum.

More than anything we need to see the forwards 'ripping in' like they did in the opening rounds.Plus moving Robinson from dummy half didn't work.He's an England international in that role now.

It's a gamble asking Grix to play half back,and at the same time bringing in a guy on debut to take over his full back duties,where SG's form for the most part has been impressive.

I think it's more a case of needs must tbh, the loss of brough, Lunt and fooey have required the changes in terms of the hooking and hb roles. Nathan has been hinting to Bruno he may be playing at second row - tbh I think he'll do well.

Well N Brown See's all whats goes on in training and behind the scenes, so you have to trust him, I thought McNally was a halfback so why the need to switch Grix, Bruno to second row ?, he wasn't good enough for his own position last week, who knows. Shades of J Sharpe anyone.
I carn't go this week as i am in a Golf comp, and i don't know that I'm really bothered anyway.

McNally has been playing Full back for a while and has been very effective there when playing for Ireland. I am glad he is being given a chance. He deserves it

joke decision to play a centre at 2nd row with 1 weeks training in that position. Will imply we are taking the mickey with our selection for the crusaders. how raleigh is over looked i'll never know, he must have scratched the coaches car or something.... All joking aside what message does this send out to senior players who are good players that a kid who has NEVER played your position get a shot at it. Shades of Jon Sharpe indeed. Just play people in their propper positions and we will be fine. let people have a run of 4/5 ganes so they can get some fluidity in their game, instead of in for 1 out for 5. how are players expected to prove themselves in one game???

McNally plays fb for his country, grix has played hb plenty of times, robbo back to 9 where he's best , Bruno will kill second row and i suggest this will be a more permanent position for him as it's an area he has been working on for a whole- more than one week training. Don't forget Nathan sees a lot more of the players tan we do and takes into account how they perform in training.

TBH I think that Bruno has the build of a 2nd rower, if it gives him chance to play then why not! If NB thinks he can do it, so should we.

I don't have a problem with Bruno playing in the second row if that's where Brown wants him, Just seems a strange time to be making changes like that when we are getting towards end of season playoffs, especially when the first half of the season was spent rotating to find our best squad, That coupled with the fact we have players who have spent their playing lives at second row,sat in the stand, at a time when our defence leaves a lot to be desired.
The thing is we have been revelling all season in this strongest squad in super league, now we get a couple of injuries and the team starts getting swapped about, Anyway N Brown has done a great job so he is the man, we have enough quality to cover such things against Crusaders, I wouldn't feel so happy if it was Warrington this week.

Yeah,must agree with this ^

Wigan did to us what we have been doing to the other contenders all season.It seems a bit odd we go drastic now and shove Bruno into the SR.If Wardle retains his place this week he could feel himself a bit fortunate,not that I am putting the blame solely on his shoulders for the big loss last weekend,but it seemed like the right choice was Bruno back into centre for Joe.

Can't wait for today. Hopefully a quality performance from whoever plays. A chance for one or two to stake a claim for the future. I just want to see a committed performance in attack and defence and then back that up week after week.
