Half-back Ryan Brierley will be a straight replacement for Danny Brough, who has been handed a one-match ban, while there could be a first appearance of the season for utility back Jared Simpson, who on Thursday signed a contract extension which will take him to the end of the 2018 season.
He's a poacher and nothing more. And he certainly doesn't have the all-round game to play in the halves in SL. Playing in a team creating few chances, making few breaks and hardly ever off-loading, he stood no chance. If he played for us at full-back, he'd be on fire backing up the links of Moors, JSL, Millington etc. I wouldn't swap him for Hardaker though.
