Off top of my head
Roby
Percival
Naiqama
Thompson

Its probly a good thing for us sts won, no one is going to catch sts so id rather they had the 2pts instead of Salford and last thing we need is a sts backlash next week.

We need to treat next weekend as a Cup final..or a big final.

Never know we might turn up for this one! :)

Thompsons done ankle ligaments so will miss Magic Weekend. Zeb Taia should also be looking at least a game ban for that swinging arm. Roby and Naiqama will be back. Not heard anything about Percival, but saw Saints fans tweeting him asking if he'd be back for Sunday, so possibly injured.

having watched Saints a number of times their defence is top draw coming in a solid wall and no one coming out of the line, a kick just behind this line could make them think, when we had Alan Hardisty playing against this type of defence he used to exploit it to the full

Said that loads of times gateman, any team who charges up, you have to have a plan B.
It might just put a but if doubt in there minds.
we don’t seem to do it, it does frustrate me sometimes, would love to see us get into teams faces instead of letting them come to us.

Go out and play like we know they can and anything is possible.Salford weren't that far away last night so it is doable.

Saints were missing Roby, Thompson , Percival and LMS so as many starters as Cas had missing at Leeds.

Doesn't offer enough in attack for me. How long is Moors out for?

I think your Normanton link gets the better of you here. I'm also from Normy and went to Freston at the same time as him but I think where he can be solid in defence he just doesn't have enough outwide to make us a threat like Meeks and Jesse.

They're also constantly offside. Especially that young Matty Lees who seems to always fly out of the line looking for big hits.
