INJURY has cruelled Brothers forward Tyson White's chances of a run with the Capras in front of a home crowd, after he was named in an extended 18-man squad for Saturday night's game against Souths Logan.

The athletic, rangy White can play both in the back row and front row, turning in a hot run of form recently at prop, which led to him once again landing on the Capras' selection radar.

"He bends the line, he sets the whole set-up and you can play on the front foot," Capras assistant coach Damien Seibold said yesterday.

"He's earnt it (recall) through such good performances."

White hasn't played for the Capras since round one last year, amazingly turning out on the wing, and despite being ruled out with an elbow injury, acknowledged the importance of once again catching the eye of Capras staff.

"Yeah it always is (nice to be named in the squad)," White said.

Unfortunately for the 22-year-old forward, the chance to be involved with the region's top rugby league side has evaded him this time, after he picked up the injury during Queensland Rangers trials last week.

Of immediate concern for White, a prop that prides himself on his mobility and fitness, is how soon he can get back out on the park with his Brothers A-grade team-mates.

"I've got an appointment this afternoon (Thursday) and hopefully I'll only miss a week or two," he said.

Pleased with finally finding some stability in a more central role, White said he was more comfortable either up front making tackles or running lines on either edge as a back-rower.

"It's good because I'm more involved and constantly working which I really enjoy," White said.

"You've got to have good defence, but mobility is a big bonus."
