Laurie and Schirnack should be added IMO, if Skando and Payne are ruled out. Laurie has been a disappointment this season, we would all agree, but he has had a couple of games where he did have a positive impact and one of those games was against the Eels earlier this season. He had a good battle against Fui Fui and got under his skin. He’s also one of the few Tigers forwards who can put a hit on and dislodge the ball. Defensively he has some issues with positioning but I thought he was starting to make some headway against Souths, and we haven’t seen him since.
I don’t think he will be selected, but he does offer impact which could very well help the Tigers against a side like the Eels who will try and go through the Tigers. Schirnack is an honest toiler who will benefit from training fulltime with the top squad next season but he can cover Payne without any fuss IMO. I’d prefer Mataka but he’s injured. Akeripa could be worth a shot playing in the backrow off the bench.
