Used to watch Knights games with a mate from newy when he played for them, was very often one of their best

With some of our off-season signings ie Rochow, Thompson, Godinet it goes to show Cleary has an excellent grasp of securing unheralded (and cheap) committed toilers to buy into a plan and get the job done...

A lot of love for Aloiai I've noticed, I wouldn't make a change Rochow has stood out in every game I've seen so far, MCK was good and his late offloads were chook killers.

Surprised how few people remember how good he was at the knights. He was one of their best consistently and it was injuries and going to Souths that set him back.

I was a bit surprised to see him in the team tbh, but had a great game. Full marks to Ivan for seeing something others didnt

Thought Aloiai was out for about 3-4 weeks. Hope you right !

I liked him at Knights, but he was a class above what I was hoping for this season.

Makes things very interesting when Aloiai returns.

I think MCK has to stay. He has done everything required of him. I'd definitely pick Aloiai as well though. We either have 4 forwards on the bench or one of Eisenhuth or Lawrence drop off.

we cannot be sentimental here.... in a like for like swap, Lawrence is the lowest hanging fruit out of himself Aloiai, Rochow and MCK. It just is what it is...

He’s probably ahead of McQueen in the pecking order now I would say.

I suppose the question is who drops off. I'd love 3 middle forwards on the bench and MCK but there is no way we have an 80 minute hooker to do that. That means at some point someone is missing out. MCK has been one of our best in the trials and yesterday so he has to stay.

Aloiai can definitely play in the middle of the field. I'd consider having him as a prop replacement and having Eisenhuth rotating with ET. If he is considered in the backrow then I agree that Lawrence is the right option to leave out.

Cant ET fill in at hooker during the game to give the 9 a rest. Seemed to do a good job of it at the end of last year.
