Cullens CommentPaul Cullen gives his views on the break in between the Super League and who will be de-registered.HOW HAVE YOU AND THE TEAM SPENT YOUR WEEK'S BREAK?Light duties, pre-Challenge Cup Final those who needed to train did, those who didn't were rested and a normal weeks preparation post Cup Final.HAVE THE BREAKS FOR THE POWERGEN CHALLENGE CUP THIS YEAR THROUGHOUT THE SUMMER BEING BENEFICIAL OR A HINDERANCE TO GAME PREPARATION?They have been of great benefit to date and hopefully will be even more so as the grind of the play-offs swings into full force. WAS IT THE EXPECTED OUTCOME OF THE CHALLENGE CUP FOR YOU?No team is unbeatable. HOW HAVE THE INJURIES PROGRESSED - DEAN GASKELL AND MIKE WAINWRIGHT?Both are doubtful for the Salford game.HAVE YOU MADE THE DIFFICULT DECISION ABOUT WHICH PLAYER IS TO BE DE-REGISTERED TO ALLOW ANDREW JOHNS TO PLAY?It will be Graham Appo who will be de-registered sue to his shoulder injury. It is an unfortunate time of season for Graham to get injured. The option is there for Graham to be still available for us if any one of the three overseas players gets injured. Whether Graham wants to take up that option, or chooses not to do because it is too difficult for him, is his decision and we'll support him either way. Contractually he is secure and he won't lose out financially in this situation.WE NEED ONE MORE POINT TO CONSOLIDATE OUR PLACE IN THE TOP SIX, DO YOU THINK SALFORD WILL BE AN EASY CONTEST ON SUNDAY?Playing Salford is never easy as we found out on Good Friday, but our preparation is about what we intend to do. WE HAVE SEVERAL PLAYERS OUT OF CONTRACT AT THE END OF THIS SEASON IN PARTICULAR DEAN GASKELL AND PAUL NOONE, WILL YOU BE RETAINING THEM OR RELEASING THEM?Any announcements will be made at the appropriate time.
