    thats a bad call, toopi has been great for us and actually plays centre, bodene on the bench for walker or meyers.

    The makeup of the team will be fascinating this week.

    O'Dwyer will be the first to go which is something I never believed I would be saying at this time last year.

    I couldn't drop Mini - he has a dropped ball in him each week but he really bends the line and is ferocious off the back of quick play the balls.

    I would probably drop Laffranchi back to the bench in place of Henderson and leave Thompson on the bench. I would go with this:

    Presto
    Zip-Zip
    Michaels
    Toopi
    Gordon
    Rogers
    Prince

    Bailey
    Friend
    White
    Mini / Boof
    Harro
    Bird

    BENCH
    Myers
    Mini / Boof
    Bo (I love this kid...)
    Ridge / James (they can be alternated in and out to keep them fresh and help with their development)

    Should be an epic match - let's hope we get a crowd befitting the occasion.

    a winning backline shouldn't be tampered with ... hopefully
    we need an 80 minute Bird so there lies the challenge

    If Harro and Bird are back. I think you'd leave Rogers at 5/8th. Move Bird to lock, Ash to 2nd row and put Mini to the bench as an impact player.

    A problem, but a good problem to be trying to squeeze such classy players into the team.

    I would put Mini on the bench aswell. It will enable Bird to go back into the position everyone knows he has to play.

    The Titans having Mini come off the bench would be unreal imo.

    I agree, the bench isn't what it used to be. It's an essential part of football.

    Rogers has no fear of Bird shuffle

    TITANS veteran Mat Rogers says he does not mind if the impending return of Greg Bird forces him away from five-eighth for Friday night's clash with Parramatta at Skilled Park.

    Rogers has been inspirational playing outside skipper Scott Prince the past two weeks and scored two tries in the Titans' gutsy 28-20 win over the New Zealand Warriors at Mt Smart Stadium on Sunday.

    But Titans coach John Cartwright has made no secret of the fact he likes Bird at five-eighth.

    If Bird does return against the Eels as expected, it is likely to mean a return to the centres for Rogers.

    But the man himself said it did not bother him.

    ''Wherever I am I look forward to the challenge of it,'' Rogers said at the club's recovery session today.

    ''Nothing changes with me I still catch the ball, run away from the big blokes and try to score tries.''

    All the talk in recent weeks has been about the 34-year-old's future at the Titans and the game in general.

    Rogers said it was not playing on his mind.

    ''There is no timeframe from my end ... the thought of next year doesn't even enter my mind, I don't care about next year,'' he said.

    ''I am just worrying about the rest of the season with the Titans.''

    That rest of the season does look promising for the Titans and Rogers believes both he and the club have hit their straps at the same time.

    ''The last month has probably been the best football I have played for a while and I think as a club it has been as well,'' he said.

    ''The last month, everything has sort of come together for the club and my form has as well.

    ''But there is still a lot of football between now and the finals.''

    Default Eels need to work together: Hagan

    Eels need to work together: Hagan

    Former Parramatta coach Michael Hagan claims in-form fullback Jarryd Hayne needs more help from his supporting cast if the Eels are to get their NRL finals charge going again.

    Despite labelling Saturday night's pummelling at the hands of the Sydney Roosters a mere "hiatus", Hagan said Hayne needed more from his teammates.

    "If certain things aren't being done collectively by the group, it makes it difficult for those really talented players to have an impact, because they're not in the right part of the field or they're on the back foot," Hagan said.

    "The intent was not there from the start (against the Roosters) ... if the start and the intent isn't as it should be then that's going to impact on the influence any good player can have on the game."

    But Hagan said from what he saw in the three-match win streak that preceded the loss to the Roosters, the Eels were more than capable of forcing their way into the top eight.

    "Apart from the weekend, there's been a very good contribution from a lot of people within the team," Hagan said.

    "I'm sure it was just bit of a hiatus on the weekend where everyone was a bit off and the Roosters were certainly on."

    Hagan coached Hayne in the early stages of the NSW and Test star's career, and gave him his first opportunity at fullback back in 2007.

    He is also well placed to make a judgement on the ability of a side to ride on the back of one player, having coached one of the game's greatest individual talents in Newcastle champion Andrew Johns.

    While acknowledging Hayne and Johns brought a different set of skills to the table, Hagan said the reigning Dally M player of the year could still take something from Johns' methods.

    "Joey learnt to play a lot more patiently at the back end of his career because he knew that if he wasn't patient himself it didn't give you the opportunity to be in the right part of the field or execute the money plays," Hagan said.

    "(Hayne's) only young so that's certainly going to come."

    Parramatta don't have much time to dwell on the loss to the Roosters with another vital match against Gold Coast on Friday night.

    A loss to the Titans and wins for the Warriors and Brisbane - who play lowly Cronulla and North Queensland respectively - could leave Parramatta four points out of the top eight and facing a tough ask to secure a finals spot.
