Crookes is out for twelve weeks so, depending on whether we survive or not, it looks like Ainscough could be playing for a few weeks until Kear returns.

Ainscough is not in the squd - I think he has an injury? Purtell can play wing. Lulia & Pryce and Walker & Purtell???

Ainscough is injured too - but I don't know how bad it is.

From the Bulls website:

'The Squad is: Addy, Ainscough, Burgess, Diskin, Elima, Hargreaves, Jeffries, Joseph, Kearney, Langley, L'Estrange, Lulia, Manuokafoa, Olbison, Platt, Pryce, Purtell, Sammut, Whitehead'

No Walker, but Ainscough is there.

I don't know what he'll do to be honest. We know that Lulia will play in the Centre and Pryce will play on the Wing. Does he put Purtell on the wing and move Platt to centre? He may put Ainscough outside Lulia?

My worry is that much of the squad will be playing their last game for us on Friday; unless more fans pledge. Save The Bulls!

Who was it on here a couple of weeks ago that said Purtell had done his Quad and was out for a month - when he hadn't. I now have a bowl of salt at the side of me so I can take comments with a large pinch of it!

The bulls will be fine, they wiil enter admin for 24 hrs during this period a new investor will take over. Hood will stay at the top, the rest of the board will be sacked as they haven't been willing to back the club, money wise in any shape or form.Plus NO players will be sold. This is already a done deal!! Watch this space:-)

I thought Ainscough pulled his hamstring? Plus I was assuming he was with him not been in the squad (according to the T&A anyway).

Assuming the Bulls squad is correct, Ainscough for Crookes.
