I have a sneaking suspicion we might see Boyle on the bench today.
Lots of maybe’s but that’s fair enough with all injuries and state of origin , Would a maybe be Arthur at lockFew different options for full back, 7 and 13 and sure that there is plenty of thought going into it . Weekes still in favor apparently being 18 th man recently , whether he is being considered as the best fit at the back is another matter but would expect if Garrick is preferred there , Tippytoes back on the wing or Vaega [ however no idea how he has been going recently ] Kaeo on the bench Zac Fulton would have to come into contention for 13 if he is available , if not maybe Bully with Sipley back . Talk of Arthers so guess anything is on the table , similarly with Johns as the 7 , which Arthers could adequately manage there also . Maybe Garrick the choice as captain . No Lawton and guess that Boyle may get a call up then .

If he hits the ground running at training this week I wouldn’t be surprised if he is a late inclusion. I guess the club don’t want to put any media pressure on him by naming him.I'd prefer that, but they might want him to train with the team for a week or two first given it is such a pivotal role.
5 days training with the squad and throwing him into a game with no Jake, Tom, DCE and a bunch of forwards wouldn't really be fair on him. He is definitely an upgrade on Cooper but playing him this week would be risky. I don't see it happening unless Johns is still injured.If he hits the ground running at training this week I wouldn’t be surprised if he is a late inclusion.

Wish him all the best in our colours.
he is very dedicated apparently so Im sure he will learn the plays etc ,his defence is far better than Johns from what I have seen of both of them and I think he has more football nous and skill as well .I reckon they wont name him till game day to take the pressure off .I think what may happen if Johns isnt dropped is Arthur comes onto for the bench for Tippy toes ,that way he can cover in the 1/2s and at 9 and in other posi's as well5 days training with the squad and throwing him into a game with no Jake, Tom, DCE and a bunch of forwards wouldn't really be fair on him.
