Aloiai 😦 … Ive heard its a few weeks for him out. It’s a really average second row. Not much punch off the bench. Could be a long one night

Where the hell is Aloiai?

Best for time being …… Milne for mine in centres and JJ in second row … but the Coach knows best.

I will give it 3 posts before someone complains about a selection…

Why Lawrence

Why Naiqama

Where is Lolohea

That bench sucks

Are at the top of my list…

😃

Aloia injured is my understanding did his medial or something at training

Christopher
Timothy
Robert
lol

Nofoaluma named for the Maggies? Insane.

On the flip side, plenty of competition for spots is a great thing.

LOL same reaction after reading the team.

So have Huth and Twal (who hasn’t played a minute this season) as the middle rotation with a couple of nice to have players on the bench.
I said if Godinet saw first grade this year we are in trouble and I stand by that.
I would not be confident of that squad beating any NRL team

Such a shame for Aloiai to be injured, he deserved a starting spot for mine. Looks like Eiso will be playing front row interchange. Bit surprised with Nofo being dropped, but Thompson deserves his chance for now so good luck to him.

On paper that’s a very weak team. Let’s hope the sum of all parts is stronger than the individual components.

I’m fine with that team named, only real upgrades are liddle coming in to the 9 jumper and josh aloiai coming into the bench for chee kam. Although I think jj felise deserves a shot

According to the tigers site, Chris Lawrence is captain. The shared captaincy thing is confusing.
