Is he in Australia? If so, why would you play him when you've predicted he's no longer going to be a development player in 2022 & miles away from a top 30 spot?
Yes and he’s in the bubble, seen him in players stories. May as well give him a shot to see what we have on our hands in a meaningless game if he’s healthy.

He’s off contract as a development player. Only reason I can gather is to have a look if he’s worth holding onto.
 
A bit of a dilemma for Brown, give the fringe players an opportunity or go for broke to improve their position?
Both options have merit, it depends on the big picture, as I know the Titans are no easy beats. Give too many fringe players a chance and it could be a blow out, or stick to the nucleus of the team and another nail biter.

We win & we finish 11th. We lose we likely finish 11th too. If he feels his job is under pressure he'll run out the best available 13 (in his eyes), if not, I think we'll see Ale, Vailea & Otukolo included

What I'd like to see / what I think Brown will do based on Egan being unavailable & a cautious approach with Chanel Harris-Tavita given his injury history:

1. Walsh
2. Dallin Watene-Zelezniak
3. Vailea/Hiku
4. Berry
5. Montoya
6. Hiku/Chanel Harris-Tavita
7. Sean O'Sullivan
8. Addin Fonua-Blake
9. Otukolo/Jazz
10. Lodge (Jamayne Tounua-Brown if Lodge is suspended)
11. Curran (Katoa if Curran is injured)
12. Aitken
13. Jazz/Sironen

14. Nikorima
15. Afoa
16. Ale/Jamayne Tounua-Brown or Evans
17. Glamuzina/Katoa (Murchie if Curran is out)

I go with your team, but as for Nikomoney NO.... should be nowhere in the pick.
