In Bulls Eye this week:
ARE YOU EXPECTING A SIMILAR GAME AGAINST WIDNES TO THE ONE IN THE CHALLENGE CUP?
Absolutely. They are tough on their own midden and we are probably going to have to be better than when we were there a fortnight ago. The players know how tough it is going to be and how well we have to perform to get what we want from the trip.
They are on the bottom of the table but they have had a very tough start. They have played Hull away, Saints and Leeds at Headingley and they have competed very well in all of them. Come the middle of the season they are going to be up there and at the moment they will be looking to knock one of the big sides off and get their season started. We have to make sure this week it is not us.
THEY HAVE SOME QUALITY PLAYERS IN THEIR SIDE.
He has Super League experience with Leeds and Huddersfield and he can play, as most of the players in this competition can if they are left alone. He has been carrying things with Daniel Frame because they have been without the Captain Ryan Sheridan. He has been a big loss to them and hopefully he will be back soon to strengthen their side.
WIDNES GAVE US A TOUGH RIDE IN THE CHALLENGE CUP. ARE YOU EXPECTING THE SAME THIS WEEK?
Yes I am. They are a very dogged and determined team who give 100% right to the end it took us the majority of 70 minutes to get on top of them a fortnight ago. They work very well for each other and if you make a mistake they will punish you.
They are bottom of the table but that is a reflection of the standard of the competition rather than how they are playing.
You don?t get the odd surprise now you just get them all along and the sides who have lost have generally lost by only a few points and that?s good for the competition.
Squad: Pryce, Withers, Pratt, Naylor, Hape, Vainikolo, Gilmour, Deacon, Paul, Vagana, Anderson, Fielden, Moore, Radford, Lowes, Parker, Langley, Forshaw, Reardon.
Jamie Peacock needs 4 points for a total of 100 for the Bulls. He has scored 24 tries.
Scott Naylor needs 2 tries for a career total of 100.
