Labour pains test Tigers

Townsville Bulletin - - Sport -

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.
