    See what Josh Aloiai had to say in full about this week’s game in the video above!

    Wests Tigers forward Josh Aloiai is confident in his team covering the loss of co-captain Russell Packer this Sunday against the Manly-Warringah Sea Eagles.

    Packer is expected to be sidelined for the next few weeks after picking up a knee injury in the club’s last start win over the Melbourne Storm — a blow for the side given the forward’s strong start to the year.

    However, Aloiai was adamant that the club’s depth of talent would cover the loss well.

    “Russell’s been awesome and a really great leader for us,” Aloiai enthused.

    "Luckily for us we’ve got a lot of depth. Everyone is looking to step up and put their hand up when they can, and if the opportunity is there then we know that people are going to do that.

    "When you lose someone like Russell, it’s on everyone to put their hand up.

    “He gets through a tonne of work, but we’ll do it,” he said.

    "I guess a lot of what our team is built on is being selfless and working hard for the guy next to you.

    “If you asked people a word that describes us, I think you could say resilient. And if people describe our culture as resilient, then that’s something you can be pretty rapt about.”

    Great words by a future superstar. Love what Ivan has brought to the club, all about playing for the guy next to you and being selfless.

    Josh returning to full fitness is a bonus for us…



  • Josh Is the ultimate gentleman. Softly spoken and humble.his nature reminds me of Mick Cronin OAM. He looks very comfortable in his own skin and doesn’t need to act tough.

    He deserves a wrap for the way he carries himself.



  • I was extremely impressed with his interview.

    As I am impressed his improvement as a footballer.

    You can tell just how much calmer the place is without the egos of the big 3.

    if he is not a future captain of the club I am not here.



  • He is a very impressive young man.

    So well spoken and thoughtful for a pre game interview.



  • Great guy. Very important addition in our squad, he and like many others are the right personalities for this team. No egos, laziness, hot heads etc. anymore which I couldn’t be happier about.
