Man he is getting it large atm......
I think Lawrence has been pretty good all year especially when you remember back to his form last year. Our problems come from using two very inexperienced halves and second rowers but fingers crossed it will reap rewards further down the track.

Of course the problem Lawrence has through no fault of his own is a big fat juicy back ended contract and that keeps him in the spot light that other players seem to avoid

He was up against a second rower against the chooks, I would be worried if he didn't have a good game.

He can go anywhere in the backline. I don't care. Just great go see him back on deck. The obvious choice for me would be a straight Lawrence out, Nofa in scenario. But that's never gonna happen.

WESTS Tigers speedster David Nofoaluma is expected to play his first NRL game of the year on Sunday despite not being named.

Nofoaluma had a disrupted off-season due to a serious hamstring injury and has been working his way back into form in the NSW Cup after missing the start of the year.

Youngster Delouise Hoeter is set to make way, with a final decision to be made after Saturday’s captain’s run.

Nofo is a late withdrawal from the NSW Cup team.

Only question now is where he plays. I would play him wing, Kev to centre and Hoeter 18th man.

He needs to improve his defensive reads and his attacking plays but he makes a difference. He is a weapon.

I love his runs, so hard to stop and bring down. After a few weeks he will find his feet and the combos will build.

He has to play wing next week, he offers more in the air than Naiqama.

Obviously needs to improve his communication and a couple of areas but looked the most threatening a centre has looked for us this year.

Work in progress, stick with him!

He has a Hurrel-esque potential in the centres, but I'd hate to see his aerial and finishing abilities go to waste.
Regardless, a welcome addition to the team, welcome back Nof.

After a scratchy start he looked very good, one of the few positives out of a very low game of football

Same here. Nofa looked dangerous at times. The cracks are showing with Naigama. (don't know how to spell) I also think Patty Richards needs to get his stuff together. He can't catch but we need him for his goal kicking. They should go with cherrington, but they won't. This is the team I would go with.

Change it to how you guys would pick the team if you were JT

1. Tedesco
2. Nofa
3. Lawrence
4. Hoeter
5. Richards

6. Moses
7. Brooks

8. Lodge
9. Cherrington
10. Galloway

11. Siro
12. Lovett
13. Taupau

14. Halatau
15. Sue
16. Santi
17. Ava S
