I can see hudds, kr and London all winning a game in the last 3 and it coming down to points difference. Thinking London won't do it but hoping they do.

I think we'll make the 5. Saints away could be anything but the week after Wembley will help us. Hull at home a win. Wigan away a tough close draw, but we beat them in the playoffs.

I think it will be a big ask to finish in the top five tough fixtures.
It will be down to attitude and availability.
Any updates on the injury front re Watts, Cooky and Shenny would feel more positive if they were all available..
Our point difference and silly late errors may be the telling factor.
Pretty much as to who's for the drop.
London worst points difference but the more positive attitude of the contenders.
As many have pointed out with the exception of Saints it's been very open.
Unfortunately we have to play them, cup hangover the will no be wanting to fizzle out.
Wigan also going well unfortunately.
Sad to say l think we will have to settle for sixth.

We could actually be in pole position for McGillvary if Hudds go down given Hull have about 5 wingers, Saints have Makinson and Grace, Wigan have 4 good wingers, and Wire have Charnley and Lineham.
We have 4 ourselves --- Clare, Eden, Olpherts & Feki. How amny more do we need??

I think Cas fans would probably exchange 2 maybe 3 of those for McGillvary should he be available. You just don't turn down quality players when you have them.
In the spirit of the final Blackadder episode - Goooodbyeee!

Mcgilvary in a heart beat.cracking try scorer and amount of pens he gets from taking ball in from his own 20 would be priceless to us

Yes, people are. Are they not allowed to do so? I’m one who thinks Blair will come good after a pre season, where he can learn our attacking plays. Defensively, Cheyse is as good as they come.

Not seen anything yet to suggest Blair should be in over Pete and Shenny apart from his highlight reel on yuotube, certainly done nothing in a Cas shirt as yet.

Let's give him a pre season before judging him. He's not doing much wrong but not standing out. He's playing ok in an ok team.

Hopefully next year he will play good in a good team.

We have Olpherts and Clare :lol:
So we could have 5 awesome wingers? ;)
Think he'll go to Leeds if anybody.

would stand out even more how bad he as being if was playing in a good team my opinion . In my opinion if was in a better back line would not be starting be on bench like said before would rather keep minikin . Its how it goes sometimes every signing don't always work out even with all hype . lets see if fumper is right plays better next year fingers crossed.
