SQUAD NEWS: Wolves name 19-man squad to face Castleford

First published in Wolves

TONY Smith has named his 19-man Warrington Wolves squad for the clash with Castleford Tigers on Friday.

James Laithwaite is the only player to come into the 19, while Gene Ormsby makes way. Ormsby and Gareth O’Brien were the two to miss out last week.

With just the one change, Smith will give the side who lost to Leeds Rhinos in the semi final on Saturday a chance to bounce back at The Halliwell Jones Stadium.

Wolves: Roy Asotasi, Ryan Atkins, Chris Bridge, Anthony England, Rhys Evans, Simon Grix, Ben Harrison, Micky Higham, Chris Hill, James Laithwaite, Joel Monaghan, Michael Monaghan, Richie Myler, Gareth O’Brien, Stefan Ratchford, Matthew Russell, Trent Waterhouse, Ben Westwood, Paul Wood.

Myler did feck all last week so why is he again in their instead of GOB. Also could do with Penny back, I think he's a better option than Evans / Ormsby

The halves have a massive ? against them that's for sure, Myler plays the nearest to the way TS sees a scrum half if he sees a scrum half at all, close to the ruck, were as O'Brien due to size has to play out wider but tends to get caught in possession or is often under pressure, Bridge I don't see as a long term solution as he's not a players player or a real creator tends to lose his way by over doing it, much more effective at centre just glad to see him fit for a full season, Ratchford similar with regards to a play maker much better out wide or from the back.
As there is no time for mixing and matching I would have to go with Myler and Bridge.
