A lot of people think Foster will be there. I hope not his passing ability is not very good.

I think it will be Minikin or Roberts personally.

IT looks almost certain that Minikin will start the season at centre that was the position he was brought in to play and that is were DP sees him, a FIT Benny Roberts would get into most teams lets hope he as more luck on the injury front as the poor lad seems to spend more time being unavailable than being available

With the players that we know are missing for the first game I think we'll line up something like this:

Peanut
Clare
Minikin
Shenton
Eden
Trueman
Roberts
Watts
McShane
Millo
McMeeken
Foster
Milner

Massey
Jesse
Cook
Moors

On Roberts, I’ve always thought that there is a very good player in there somewhere, but I have to say that he appears lazy sometimes. I just hope DP can re-ignite his enthusiasm back to 2017 levels for his final year with us. If he can remain fit and with the number of positions he can cover we could have a potential match winner off the bench.

Don't have an issue with BR filling in for Gale at all (despite the popular opinion I still rate him and think he's one of best attacking players) the only thing that does worry me is BR always seems to struggle with the heavy ground in the first 6 weeks or so of the season..................

Agree with your starting 13 but not sure of the value of having 4 props on the bench when we are moving to only 8 interchanges.
I would have thought a back or utility player would have been a better option . Maybe swop Foster and JSL around.

Its a good shout that Gateman, I think you've probably nailed it there, Truman and Ellis in the halves for the first 4 to 6 weeks is probably what we are going to see.......

8 interchanges may actually work to our advantage over the season. Our pack is arguably the most mobile in the league, with pretty much every forward we have able to play 80 minute games. You look at the bigger packs in SL, Catalan, Saints, Hull etc and their big lads will struggle with more minutes.

We need a winger if Minikin moves inside. Clare is a squad player not a starter.
