Big bang theory could become reality tonight

THE Allianz Stadium grandstands could shake tonight when aggrieved Roosters representative prop Jared Waerea-Hargreaves locks horns with the Tigers forward who took his Kiwis Test jumper, Martin Taupau.

The Tigers could feel the full brunt of a three-pronged Test backlash from Hargreaves (pictured), and dumped Roosters teammates Shaun Kenny-Dowall and Frank-Paul Nuuausala, who were all left out of the side that lost last Friday night's Test 30-16 to the Kangaroos.

While Taupau made a strong debut off the bench, he didn't deliver the same brutal impact Hargreaves is renowned for.

The 16-Test veteran, who played for the losing Kiwis side in last year's World Cup final, wasn't too impressed by the way his axing was handled, and those emotions could come out tonight against a Wests Tigers pack led by Aaron Woods and 24-year-old Taupau, who is set to come off the bench.
