Twal looks like another Aloaia in my eyes.
I have family in Balmain and the Western suburbs so i guess that makes me a Balmain Westie

Winner of FIFA world cup LMS 2018

Really? I can't recall the last time Aloiai consistently made 100+, nor 140m+, or made 40 tackles while only missing one.

Aloiai lies somewhere between an impact prop and a working prop but that's the problem, he's neither at the moment and he needs to consistently bring something to the team.

Without wanting to derail the thread from Twal, the stats show that Aloiai is not an impact prop. Averages 60m a game, 0.2 offloads a game and 0 line breaks so far this season from 11 games.

I still rate him. I think he just needs to be played in the middle consistently and be given an impact player role.

I think Aloiai is a better back rower than Sue. Twal is a middle forward

Aloai is too heavy and needs to work on his fitness.
He is an edge forward that is too big to play out wide.
He gets tired and drops balls and gives away penalties.
If he works hard he could be our best backrower but being used in the middle which I think is wrong.

Sue isn't good in the backrow. Maybe we could play one of those two in the backrow but play them in the middle and not the edge.

They are both better in the middle though.

Hmm has everyone forgotten Aloiai played nearly every game last year at 2nd row and did a great job? Not sure what happened over the break but he put on 5-6 kgs. Taylor must of told him hel put him in the middle. Ridiculous. The kid was developing nicely.

I think he was okay on the edge but to me he looks better in the middle.

Sharks' supporters are getting worked up about Ava and his stats which are a significant upgrade on Tagatese.. He is a good player but he has chosen to leave. I think young Twal may has him covered which is a great win for WTs.
