**Hypothetical** question here, I'd be interested in people's thoughts and I don't think this will be lopsided…

If you were given an ultimatum to pick from either Chris Heighington or Gareth Ellis to keep at the club, who would you pick?

Whoever you picked would sign a lifetime contract, whoever you didn't pick would be gone for good, no returning...

Heigho or Elmo?????

That's not an easy one because both players are good in their own right. I'd be leaning towards Ellis purely for his extra size and the extra sting he puts into tackles. Heighno gets through more work in attack, but Ellis is no slouch there and has adapted to the NRL pretty well.

Tough call….....

But I think Heighno has played at his best, and we know what he is capable of.

I think Ellis is yet to show his best, as he is still learning his way in the NRL. I think Ellis could be the best backrower in the game in years to come.

So, simply for sheer potential - Ellis.

And Ellis took a pay cut to come to the Tigers…

Hmmmm, its a decision like choosing between my wife and my missus. One day I will choose one, the other day the other.

I will go with Ellis by a whisker, though there is not much in it. The are both West Tigers champions.

But he's still on a BIG contract with us.

Ellis, simply because he's better

Heigho has been underperforming for far too long.
