Wests Tigers have finalised their NRL team for their Round 8 clash against the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs on Friday, April 24.

Kickoff for the match is scheduled for 7:45pm at ANZ Stadium, Sydney Olympic Park.

With Keith Galloway ruled out of the match with a shoulder injury, Sauaso Sue will move to the starting side as his replacement, with Ava Seumanufagai named on the bench.

http://www.weststigers.com.au/news/2015 ... s_rou.html

Delouise Hoeter comes into the starting side — playing in the centres in the place of Chris Lawrence, who moves to the bench. Jack Buchanan will drop out of the side, as Wests Tigers look to bounce back from back-to-back defeats in their past two matches.
Brave move but fortune favours the brave.

I commend Taylor on trying something different. Hopefully it comes off

will this be a start of that ?

Ok - I'll be the odd one out - I don't like it.

Inexperienced centre (whichever one is used) and a very poor bench.
Lawrence is not a back rower imo. If JT wanted his centre spot vacant, then he should have dropped him.
I think Rowdy is the second best centre in the club - I know what most think of him now - hope this doesn't come back to bite him.

This was not the week for these changes, whether we win or lose.

Its a good move however we now have a smaller team which is a concern. Still I like it.

The timing does seem strange - I think we had the dogs covered if we stuck to a similar team to last week (injuries excluded). Now I'm not so sure with this change.

So from a short term perspective - I'm unsure. Long term - good move

Personally I love the changes - & things will be complete once Keefy is back
but...
imagine the outcry if sheens had bought a winger in for an injured prop, played the winger at centre, moved a centre into the backrow and started a second rower at prop...
On the bus or under it!
Your choice.

On April 21st @ 10.44 I shared with all of you some intel re upcoming team selections which have now come to fruition. The next stage/s will be Galloway and Nofas return which will see Ava and Hoeter missing out. While Paul Fletcher ( NSW Cup coach) is still pushing hard for Asipeli Fine at the expense of Lovett, Taylor is still keen on Akauola as cover for Tapau, with Halatau covering both second rowers (Siro & Lawrence) and Robbie.
I'll try to update all of you when I receive further info, I for one think this is the way forward - pick your best available 17 from all 3 grades! I'm not saying this team will be world beaters but we can now possible make it into 8th position.

I might join you Rusty
This feels familiar to the Benji benching
I hope these changes have been thought out and not made just for the sake of it.
Buch getting relegated is a fair one though.

I know warriors have dropped Hurrell and threatened others might follow

Hope Lawrence provides impact because ava is terrible. Dene had a good game last week but is in the same boat.

This is why Tupau needs to stay on the bench! I would prefer to see Sue starting at lock and eating up the early tackles and then Tupau come on like the maniac that he is

Galloway has been superb this year and is a big loss Tonight , where as Ava has been very disappointing this year IMO
It depends who you talk to on this Forum, if you are Optimistic? it's because your delusional and need a reality check. If you are Pessimistic? Your accused of being a negative Nancy and to go and follow another Club.

Interesting..............we'll see if that makes a difference

I think it's a mistake starting Sue over Ava. Sue has been the better player, but Woods & Ava getting spelled by Sue & Lodge is more balanced I feel.
