I agree with above that the parra game worries me a bit and am hoping ellis will play and then rest him next week against the Titans who i think we will beat easily. It is a hard decision with Ellis as we dont want to lose him for the semis. but i would play him this week for sure unless the injury is that bad it would hamper his running.

If he would be ruled out if it was a friday game, then i say its too risky to play him on Sunday. Give him a rest

Difficult to specualte without knowing the details of the injury, the slight doubt might be being highly precautionary and by Sunday there be no doubt,
I like everyone else would not want to risk him if there is a chance of him being further injured, nor will the Tigers staff tho....

In reality everytime you send a player out there is a chance of injury, so if there is no or minimal risk of further injury send him out and keep the momentum to the finals going!

Whatever happened to Al Shirnack anyway? Maybe time for him to have another game. Who knows he may be needed come finals time and another game in firsts will do him good.

We will win with or without Ellis. There, I said it. :)

Why doesn't Sheen's leave Ellis on the bench and use if needed. Give Payten a starting spot for some macth fitness and drop McKinnon off the bench and replace with another forward.

If Ellis is not required as we are winning well then let him stay on the bench the whole 80 minutes.

Al Schirnack is currently injured. Of the remaining backrowers who have FG experience, there is Junior Moors, Mark Flanagan and a rather unfit Ben Murdoch-Masila.

Rest him up timmy...id rather lose 1 game if not all to ensure we enter the finals with the strongest side and not a buch of 50 percenters

Sorry mate but I dont think we have any such luxury.....particulalry if certain results go our way and we keep winning we may even jag a top 4 spot

No time for resting now

Just heard on 2GB that Ellis is in doubt for tomorrow's game. He has only trained lightly this week. They will make a decision on him tomorrow morning.

Wests Tigers were supposed to train at Leichhardt this morning (Saturday) but the whole thing was cancelled. Ellis is a week to week proposition. To be totally honest I dont think he has more than a month left in him.

If I were Fonz I'd bench him for the next 3 games. I'd run Payten for 50 mins and bring David Fifita in for 2 15 minute spells.
Wests Tigers colours are Black, White & Orange. Balmain are Black & Orange. Wests Tigers are not Balmain. Please take note Wests Tigers CEO.

Payten doesn't have 50 minutes in him at the moment Bug.

This sucks. Just can't catch a break with injuries!! As long as Ellis, Chris & Lote are all fully fit for the Finals, that's all that matters. IMO we can't win a premiership without these 3.
