I don't understand the question. He's in the squad so that kind of answers the question whether he's ill.

Ill?! Well if he's fit why isn't he playing? What had he done wrong to be deemed now behind Kershaw?

What’s the situation with Bill Tupou ? Is he still injured or just out of favour

Haven't a clue, maybe he picked up a knock, maybe he just simply isn't performing anymore, I don't mind Arundel. The thing about Senior is, I have read from a few on here he has a long term injury, but I haven't read anything official by the club, hence my question as to why he is being included in squads? Maybe he would have played last week but failed a fitness test, I just can't believe now he is 4th/5th choice winger?! Let's see if he plays on Friday.

If you watched the last game you will know the reason why Tupou isn’t playing. He was directly responsible for at least 2/3 try’s on the edges. Arundel comes back in and rightly so as he should never have lost his spot to Tupou who hasn’t hit any sort of good form in almost 2 years now.

The problem with Tupou is that he's an attacking player, his defence has always been suspect. IMHO it's down to him that TJ picked up that undeserved 'can't defend' tag, He's not dreadful but his positional sense is hugely off at times.

Most on here know that Bill is more exciting but Arundel is the technically better player.

Thing with Tupou is he always seems to save his best performances for against Leeds for some reason. Despite not being at his best recently i reckon they'll be happy he isn't playing.

Yes that’s my thoughts too. The amount of times in the past fans have called out TJ for making wrong defensive plays in dealing with overlaps rarely looked at the reason it got to that point. TJ in defence is actually pretty good imo and not many players go through him. He just has to defend more overlaps, 2 on 1s or 3 on 1st than most other wingers do. Usually because the players inside made the wrong choice leaving him exposed.

Tupou is an attacking player I agree and when he’s on he can really bust up some defences. It’s just getting less frequent as time goes by. Personally I’d have put Tupou outside Arundel on the left wing. I think he’s a better choice than Kershaw or Kay but I have no qualms that his recent displays he deserves to sit out a game.

I really like Arundel and if he’d stayed injury free I reckon would have been our first choice centre.

There’s enough in that team to give Leeds a game and win.
