For real? You guys are gonna have a go at the BEAST?

He did a lot of the 1%ers yesterday and did his job. He can't be expected to make 200 meters and 50 tackles every game.

BEAST stats:

104-Run meters / 38-Tackles (4-Missed*) / 80-Minutes (The only forward to play the full 80 btw) Also 1 of only 3 forwards to crack the 100 meters.

Its hard to make every run Rowdy-style when you're the only forward playing the full game. If this is a quiet game for the BEAST I'll take it.


*Fonua btw: 10-Tackles (4-missed) / ET: 36-Tackles (3-missed)
Let's not forget that Fonua made 180 metres (63 post contact metres), had 1 try disallowed, and did some great offloads, did you see him throw his 1 handed offloads that went like 20 metres?

But anyway, Chee-Kam on the bench and Aloiai to starting second row. But he's still a beast off the bench.

Do we know if he prefers the left or right side? Just curious because some players can really stink it up when they’re asked to play on their non-preffered side.

Massive Aloia fan.

Almost the whole team played poorly on weekend.

Lets face it. Tigers dont do great when they are favourites.

Brooks was my pick of the bunch for effort.

If line speed in defence doesnt return this weekend. We will get lapped

The strength and conditioning guys need to work on Aloiai to turn him into an energetic 80 min 2nd rower. The same way they stripped Marsters down for centre.

In ISP. That's where he should be until he comes up to standard (if ever).

Can't see that line speed returning on the right without someone to lead it and that guy made way for MCK.

Definitely there is a place in the 17 for him. DId you see his runs and the metres he gains in twisting and stepping? He also is one of our more elusive players with the ball, looking to make breaks or unload. He is a very good player for our team.

He is certainly more effective off the bench though.
And the sky is filled with light, can you see it?
And the black is really white, if you believe it.
And the longing that you feel, you know none of this is real;
You will find a better place, in this twilight...

I wouldn't mind seeing him return after a couple of weeks to freshen his body up. He knows what he's doing out there and despite the fact he's not flashy in attack he's probably the best option for the team if he can last a solid 80.

It's his second club to make grade.
He played 20s at Canberra then left....

Was injured most of his time at Manly.

20 minutes max per game, out of his depth and should not be in the starting 13.
