Anyone that was there...was he dressed to play?
Did he warm up?
Seems odd for him to go if he was never going to play....they seemed to have plenty of players in reserve already.

Maybe he has family up there.

Sheens said he was a chance of playing, maybe a back was in some doubt?

From memory I've seen him travel to Queensland before despite being injured.

ABC intimated that he was there fulfilling commitments to personal sponsors

Bugger....was hoping he was being given an hour before kickoff...was thinking he'd be a cert for next week if that were the case.

''We've had issues with injuries, we've had last-minute people pull out. We were maybe going to play Lote [Tuqiri], we had Toddy [Payten] pull out at the last minute tonight.

Thats interesting. It explains a few i've seen before, such as an injured Sam Burgess sitting in the stands in Brisbane and Melbourne, etc...

A mate of mine is a sponsor, and he said Lote was up there as part of a corporate trip. Maybe he was in line to play earlier in the week, then once he was ruled out, he chose that week to fulfill the corporate stuff......at least it's good to see the players being involved with the people who put big money into the club!!

Plane tickets don't cost much these days. I'm actually surprised they leave blokes behind to be honest.

Snr player and Marketing obligations.

Lote is more than a winger @ the Tigers
