    Douglas injured? Or rested (dropped)?

    Douglas rested I suspect. Tommo to cover 4th prop with Knowles at Loose and LMS on the bench (I hope). Thaler has been dropped (again) this week, so hoping Amor is cleared to play.

    If Thaler has been dropped or not (hint it might be natural rotation as cup week) it will feel like he has been. I just wish we had a bigger pool to choose from.

    I'd imagine we'll see each of our props get a rest over the coming weeks after the strains of Easter.

    Will be interested in how LMS performs assuming he plays. Not sure he has been dropped to often. As some might know I have defended him a lot, but this season he has not done himself any favours. I hope he has been working on another couple of routes to run just to confuse the opposition a bit.

    It would be a step backwards to put Wilkin back in to the middle for me, especially when it's completely avoidable.

    Exactly,Wilkin has to stay at right 2nd row and if LMS is to play it has to be at 13 as s supporting prop. Would of liked to see Wellington in the squad but then again why change a winning team.

    I'd have liked to have seen Wellington in this week too - looks as though he's behind Fleming in the pecking order at the minute

    Just hope we continue with attacking, creative rugby, cut out the silly mistakes and go for the throat.

    Widnes back toward full strength - certainly they've got their 1-7 backline in the frame.

    Thaler has been stepped down this weekend due to the incorrect call so surely it would be harsh to now ban Amor

    Worth a verse of "Thaler is a W@nk3r" when it goes to video then....

    That's pretty unbelievable! Martyn Sadler, editor of League Express thought it unwise of the RFL to make Thaler the official in charge for the derby, since his gaffe re Ferres on Gildart, but this is as bad! Give the idiot who doesn't utilise the video ref the video ref job! With the public castigation he's received in the rugby media regarding Amor's dismissal, he'll hardly feel like giving Saints the "rub of the green" will he? Could be a re run of the Warrington semi final!

    We should not need help or otherwise from a video ref to beat Widnes.

    Hopefully he will play in the middle either loose forward or prop he started well there against Wigan before having to cover centre. He has not got the ball skills really to playing wide and his schoolboy head up and cut back inside move kills any chance of getting he winger or centre involved

    According to the RFL website, Bentham is video ref for our game on Friday.

    No, Swift will be too busy trying to be on the Wing and play the 5th Prop.
