Very good forward pack and plenty of depth. If Barba fires they will push for top 4.

Scrape into the 8 despite having a top 4 squad. I don't think it's a very harmonious squad.

Agreed. Injuries permitting they could push for a title. Barba can win games by himself and one of their biggest issues has been a fullback that just stinks.

Yes it is isn’t it. Personally I would go Clifford over Martin and would also be very tempted to start Baptiste. Granville’s strength is his running game which is suited to the later stages of the half.

I doubt the Cowboys would release either but if we aren’t getting Edwards I would take either Martin or Clifford.

Of the 2 there's no way they'd release Clifford. Martin I could see them moving on as soon as it suits them.
