Blair won't be rushed after so long. Olam is the other who could come in if needed.

Fox sports says Scott's is a 1-2 week injury. Hope that is true

If it's true...it's unbelievably great news for our Club.

Curtis is an absolute JET.....he's critical to our team's success both short and long term.
Remember this day, men, for it will be yours for all time

"Scans suggest Curtis has suffered a high ankle sprain and he will miss the next few weeks.

"However until his swelling settles we are unable to specify a timeline exactly. We will have a better understanding in the coming days."

Suliasi Vunivalu missed last night's match-up at AAMI Park with a low-grade hamstring injury but is expected to be available for selection in Round 9.

Do we give JAC or Suli a crack at centre while Scott is out with Young on the wing?

Time for Olam or Blair to get a run?

They'll name Young at centre and Olam will come in if Suli doesn't come up.

I’m happy with giving Young the centre spot. He’s been pretty good this year

If Hughes gets through this weekend in QCup, might he be an option at Centre ?

Hughes is an interesting one. Has he ever played centre before? I don't know, but he's probably good enough.

I reckon Youngie has improved out of sight this year.

Munster also has a minor lower ankle sprain according to NRL Physio on Twitter. I saw him with about the last 40secs in the game come out of a tackle limping.

A cannon-ball tackle by Mason Lino. Probably frustrated that he was so exposed by the Storm attack. Munster gave him a good serve. Refs did SFA.

Matty Johns was saying Curtis Scott could play next weekend. I don’t know if he’s got any inside news or not, there is a chance he does seeing that he’s son is at the club, or if he’s just taking an educated guess or what but thought it was interesting. Would be great if Scott didn’t miss any game time
