    I've had enough of the bye, time to get back on track. An idle mind is the devils playground and there has been more than enough argy bargy on here over the last week or so. Time to get the juices running............

    What's BA got up his sleeve for this weeks selections against the team we are supposed to lose against but win?

    We're a bit thin on the ground in the forwards - time to throw Taka in the mix for the pack, Auva'a is the only one available to promote (in any position?) with some first grade under his belt this season.

    1 Clinton Gutherson
    2 Semi Radradra
    3 Kirisome Auva'a
    4 Michael Jennings
    5 Bevan French
    6 Corey Norman
    7 Mitchell Moses
    8 Siosaia Vave
    9 Cameron King
    10 Daniel Alvaro
    11 Brad Takairangi
    12 Tepai Moeroa
    13 Nathan Brown

    Interchange:
    14 David Gower
    15 Kenny Edwards
    16 Suaia Matagi
    17 Will Smith
    18 Marata Niukore
    19 John Folau
    20 Some nuffy who is no chance of playing
    21 Some nuffy who is no chance of playing

    I read Manu,Terepo and Frank all back this week.
    Two will need a run in Wenty for a week.

    If Ma'u is unavailable we might see a debutante against a pissweak pack like Wests. Though I agree it is a good time to start getting Takairangi used to the forwards.

    Sue and Liddle won't be named for the Tigers. Sue from suspension for a knee lift and Liddle due to an injury. It is looking likely that McIllwrick will have to play 80 minutes, in the game against Manly he was almost directly to blame for letting in 2 tries, previous to his 73 minute stint against Manly in his past 5 games McIllwrick averaged 21 minutes on the field for the Tigers.

    Would be a good game to blood Niukore if we are serious about him being next cab off the rank. We don't want to be rushing him into a sudden death game for his debut later down the track.

    With Mannah out, I think Franky P may get a run off the bench.

    With Tim out I reckon Terepo may grab a bench spot ahead of Gower who i reckon has been dissappointing in his past two games. Personally id also love to see Marata get a run.
    Cameron King to carve up this week.

    If Manu is unavailable I'd put Twal in

    I thought Gower was good against Melbourne, and decent against the Dogs. He's been playing out wide though, which isn't really his go any more.

    I'd like to see Niukore get a run. He has good physicality, even for the NRL.

    I read Ma'u was out indefinitely... but if Terepo or Pritchard are returning from injury early, then they are a chance at a bench spot, with Kenny promoted again and Taka staying his usual position (and Auva'a at Wenty).

    I guess we'll have a fair idea once BA names #20 and #21 tomorrow - if Terepo, Pritchard or M'au are not there, they're not playing.

    Josh Aloiai may be returning for the Tigers this week too.

    Wait, what's the go with Mannah?

    Concussion - according to the Club's *sorry, the Telegraph's* *actually, Fox Sports'* injury list.

    Rumours that it's "indefinite" and that he's played his last game and will retire, according to the other site.

    We should win this game by 20 if we are serious.

    But the Tigers seem to bring out the derp in us so I will take another close win.
