If we're being honest we cant expect Walker to play in every round anyway. Would have been better resting him last week than this week though. Mullady will be back for sunday and hopefuly Bltyhe too.

Hull KR is a must win game. It wiil be hard as they have had some good performances against good teams but a win sunday puts us level with London and catalan and just 1 behind Rovers. Lets get as much support there as possible on sunday. Could be last chance to go to Rovers ground for some time!

totally agree, squad management needs to be a lot better; we were never going to beat Giants so should have targeted the Hull game.

The state of London and Catalan at the moment give us a slight chance unless the latter drastically improve.

I don't think it is right to think in those terms - not least for the paying public who don't expect the coach to give the game away a la Ian Millward. Besides if Franny had played just one prop that opens the rest of the team to injury having to fill in for this relatively specialist position.

I agree completely about the importance of the win at KR, not least because the following fixtures, all the way up until we face Wakey again in June, are against the top teams. As I said yesterday, even an optimistic view only puts us on +2 points come the start of June with 12 fixtures to go.

Can the RL do anything else to us? How much do thet hate us? What have we done other than lift this ace game of ours out of the doldrums and make it into the spectacular sport it is now? Shame on you ALL at Red Hall
