Josh Aloiai

Post by Tacky » Tue 25 Apr, 2017 11:00 am

Josh needs to be making more hit-ups. Against the Dogs he made 26 meters from 3 runs. At 110kgs, I think he needs to put more runs and meters on the board. He's quick and tough which confuses me as to why he wouldn't be taking on more of an attacking load. Cleary played him off the bench on Sunday which I thought was a good move. But, he has a really powerful running game so why isn't he attacking more?

I think we've tried to get too many minutes out of him in 2016 and 2017 up until last week.

Maybe Cleary has decided to bring him on in a more measured way?

He was on the field for a period when we didnt have much ball and, when we did, our hit ups were being made primarily by our outside backs.

Sometimes it just works out that way.

I don't know what these stats mean but, it's all very confusing. It's seems since Ivan has come to the club, Josh isn't doing as much in attack.

VS Dogs 3 runs 26 meters
Vs Parra 4 runs 36 meters
VS Cowboys 5 runs 45 meters
VS Dragons 10 runs 83 meters
VS Storm 9 runs 98 meters

Josh was told he'd be a bench prop this season by Taylor, Cleary has decided to revert him back to the back row,where he is more effective.

I think Aloiai is much more effective up the middle of the field.

I'm prepared to be patient. We put 70 games into Moses and I still shake my head at some of the things he comes up with. 21yo who's played 30 games,he'll make it

No its not. Rowdy makes more metres per run than Josh and Edwards is a better defender (hits harder/misses less).

Cleary doesn't hate Josh. He has simply given him a role more suited to his experience.

I think it was more a case of strengthening our bench. Starting Edwards allowed us to bring on the bigger boys when the Dogs did so.
