Round Seven: Five to Watch
Who to watch in the four Round Seven games this week...
Tom Lineham (Warrington Wolves)
Tom Lineham returns to Hull FC the club where he spent four years of his career before joining Warrington Wolves. The two clubs face each other having both had a disappointing start to the season but they both come into their Round Seven fixture on the back of a win.
Lineham is charismatic, bizzare and witty – in an interview with the Warrington Guardian after Wolves’ win against Cas he showed these traits…
“Going forward, it’s a tough test on the dark side, East Yorkshire, the ghetto that is Hull,” said Lineham.
“I think it’s been voted in the top three worst cities in the UK for as long as I can remember.
“So, it’s not a pretty trip, it’s a tough place to go.
“My good friend Jamie Shaul (the Hull FC full-back) will be there. He’s spoken, I’ve got a lot of inside information on Hull FC. I won’t delve into too much detail for the cameras, but he gives me a lot of information that I’ll be sharing with Steve Price, his coaching staff and the rest of my teammates this week.”
Jackson Hastings (Wigan Warriors)
Jackson Hastings returns to the club he helped guide to the 2019 Super League Grand Final for the first time – Salford Red Devils. At Salford, he also won the 2019 Steve Prescott MBE Man of Steel in the Salford colours. Hastings will be welcomed back to Salford with open arms and is still highly regarded at the club.
Dan Sarginson (Salford Red Devils)
Like Hastings, Dan Sarginson will face his former club and the two players will go head to head as Sarginson will face Wigan for Salford. Sarginson had two spells at Wigan and has already represented England. He’s played four games this season scoring two tries and making an assist.
Danny Richardson (Castleford Tigers)
Danny Richardson has formed a formidable partnership with fellow youngster Jake Trueman at Castleford Tigers. Richardson signed for Daryl Powell’s men at the start of the season from St Helens, the team he’ll face Sunday afternoon.
Richie Myler (Leeds Rhinos)
It seemed from the outside that Richie Myler’s stint at Leeds Rhinos was over after the signing of Luke Gale saw him lose his number and drop out of the squad. He’s worked his way back into the side and his form has coincided with Leeds' unbeaten run.
