Scott’s difficult choices

Date published: Thursday, September 4, 2014
SCOTT Naylor will have difficult choices to make when he picks his team to play Gloucester All Golds at Whitebank (3pm) in Sunday’s final league game of the season.
With play-offs looming, he won’t want to gamble on players who have injury concerns for fear of setting them even further back.
And he is looking to make changes anyway following the Roughyeds’ disappointing performance in a 40-14 defeat on Tyneside.
Lewis Palfrey, Sam Gee, Danny Langtree, George Tyson and Mo Agoro will be in for treatment tonight, while¬†Phil Joy will be monitored closely after suffering mild concussion in the opening quarter of last Sunday’s game.
Waiting in the wings are Steven Nield, who was 18th man at Gateshead, Ben Wood, Jason Boults, Dale Bloomfield, Mark Hobson and Danny Whitmore.
Palfrey is the biggest doubt so Nield will be on red alert and hoping for a recall at full-back after a month on the sidelines.
