Labour pains test Tigers
Robert Lui WESTS Tigers coach Tim Sheens faces a halfback headache ahead of round one with Robert Lui on standby for the birth of his first son. The in-form No. 7 said he would choose family over football should his partner Taleah Backo be rushed to hospital next weekend. Lui’s son is due on March 11, just three days before the Tigers’ NRL opener against the Bulldogs at ANZ Stadium. Tim Moltzen looms as the logical choice to fill in at halfback but club officials are worried he might not be fit enough after playing just half a trial back from knee surgery.
