Josh Aloiai

    Future superstar.

    Cant be any more impressed with this young guy. Looks a star as an edge backrower but currently we need him in the middle and he’s doing the job there. Hopefully somoene can take his place in the middel with Sue so he can play to his strengths on the edge.



  • Was very impressed too KS.

    Would like to see him and Sue get more minutes. I thought they were both underutilised compared to other forwards today. Sue should be a minimum 60 min player IMO and has generally been getting less time than that each week.



  • He looked spent when he came off. Took an age to walk back , his thighs are massive. No one on either side impressed me , although is hard to gage so far back at ANZ.



  • I’m a big fan, has a lot of sting in defence. Apparently his name is John, as thats what Andrew Moore on ABC was calling him all game. Idiot.



  • The dude is huge.
    He looks down on Semi Radradra, who I thought of as a big guy.

    Impressive player tho,
    Looking to see how he progresses.



  • Very good start to the season. Runs hard & hits hard in defence.

    If Lovett is suspended next week then I hope Aloiai gets a start in the backrow with MCK promoted to the bench.



  • Its very simple isn’t it, if you are a forward just hit the ball up hard,
    If you don’t have the ball then hit the players hard in defence.

    I don’t like forwards trying to get too cute, just run those meters your team needs… SIMPLE !!!

    On topic, I like what I see so far
    Keep it going son



  • More Aloiai and Sue, less Buchanan and Lovett is what the doctor ordered

    Keeper…his work off the ball today was fantastic…will get better the more game time he gets…

    Might even have to change my Avatar…



  • He’s got talent, no doubt about that. Given it’s his first season out of NYC it’s clear to see Taylor isn’t trying to burn him out by playing him too long. I think we’ll see his gametime improve as the season develops.

    I’d have him starting in the backrow alongside Lawrence next week.

    My thoughts exactly.

    That and Elijah Taylor hopefully coming this week

    You change Avatars as often as Hobbo changes bras 😃

    Elijah Taylor?

    Reportedly wants out of the Panthers, we’re in the running to sign him apparently.



  • He and Lawrence have to be our starting edge forwards next week
