Good coaches dont treat everyone equally.

Imo josh Aloiai is being ridden hard and asked to really have a dig.

The coach knows that if he gets him right he is a difference maker in our pack.
It’s clear to see. But I’m not sure he has ever done a pre season, so maybe getting him ready for a different role down the track as suggested. He’s a class above isp level.....ran through half the pack to score on weekend.
Agreed, he is a quality footballer. ISP defences will struggle to hold him.

For me id just like to see him show that he wants to be a star player. Not just a part of the team. Show a bit of ego.

Once he does i think we have the player we have been looking for.
Ego ruins teams aka farah the old marshall and so on.

If stays in line he could be anything
Think that might have been autocorrect ... he needs a bit of aggro.

To quote Skyhooks "Ego is not a dirty word"

Im not talking about being an idiot around the club and thinking you run the place im talking about self belief.

The best sports players in the world all have ego.

Its what makes them tick.
Its an opinion!

Could have been for a similar reason as Fonua? Discipline issues?
I just don't see how he can be dropped and not making the team over Sue and MCK.

Cleary is picking the team on form. Rockow is the only forward you might think of relegating, but he has been there from game one and really is getting a job done for Cleary and I dont think his stats reflect his value to the team.

The ball is in Josh's court as we all know he could be anything

I think Rochow started the season well but I think his form has dropped off the last few weeks. And he misses way too many tackles.

You are correct regarding Rochow. So far this year he has made 291 tackles (teams second best) but missed....46! Compare to Eisenhuth 336/15, Matulino 244/14 and Twal 228/5.

Nothing.

Thats the problem.

He's the same player he was 2 years ago. Hasn't improved. Can run well, but is unfit, very inconsistent and makes a lot of mistakes.

Yes, but there not the ones moving up and cutting the ball off, getting to the outside backs, are they?

Now McQueen has been promoted to the bench in front of him.

Are you implying that his missed tackles are a result of him defending on the edge rather than in the middle? If so, then why aren't Rowdy's missed tackles at that level (or any other second rower for that matter)?

He is our one of main forwards that actually dent the line... He needs to be in this team as Panthers forwards are just rolling over us with ease

Wow...doesn't Matulino only play about 40 minutes a game? 244 vs 291 considering half the game time is a pretty good defence rate

You can’t say he’s not fit. That complaint is exclusive to Tui bashers.

It's not Sue or MCK he needs to replace, It's Rochow. MCK is just a beast and Sue has been playing well of late. Running it hard, making good metres, smashing people like how he smashed a rampaging Matt Scott running it straight at him in full flight and Sue was standing still and still smashed him and injured him. Rochow has just been piss poor.

Not sure i agree with this.

Once the props rotate with twal and sue i always feel we are more likely to be scored against.

Im happy with twal there but we need another prop on the bench thats good with the same impact as packer and matalino.


Sue needs to go.
