No chance of coming. It’s not happening. 0% chance. Don’t get hopes up people.
Aloiai is a top class forward......that is the company line.he Warriors aren't about to give up on the game's most expensive prop Addin Fonua-Blake without a fight.
The giant front-rower has put the club in a difficult position, requesting a release from his rich deal on compassionate grounds to return to Sydney.
It is believed that Fonua-Blake's parents, who live in Sydney, are in poor health and the star forward wants to be closer to them.

But the Warriors are still hopeful of retaining Fonua-Blake, who ironically signed with them from Manly also on compassionate grounds - or getting a top-class forward in exchange.

One official from a Sydney club interested in signing Fonua-Blake told Wide World of Sports, "It's no guarantee they will release him".
"They want an equivalent trade. There are not many options available to them.
"They are Zooming with Fonua-Blake from England tonight (Thursday) and the general feeling is that he will stay in New Zealand for at least another 12 months."

The Dragons have already put up their hand for Fonua-Blake, while several other clubs are also keen to secure his services.
The Warriors put out a brief statement on Thursday stating "chief executive Cameron George said the club is considering the request".
Might depend just how ill they are. They'd have to be in pretty bad shape for the Warriors to release him immediately. More likely to be let go for 2025?"It is believed that Fonua-Blake's parents, who live in Sydney, are in poor health and the star forward wants to be closer to them."
Can tell you emphatically that he is not coming to manly 100%. Oshay staying as well.Who knows what’s happening. What we have seen is offloading of middles and most recently the Aloai news. Losge not yet signed either. I think we might be a chance here. Club supported his release request last time. I assume he still has plenty of buddies at the club as well. Can only hope but from all accounts it looks like we could be in the conversation at least.
If he's still harbouring thoughts of a Premiership he won't be going to Belmore, but if it's to top up his retirement plan, he'll be going to Belmore.I got excited at first because we have been moving pieces, I agree he has probably lined something up before requesting a release and I have always rated him and was sorry to see him leave us…
…but the more I read this thread the more I realised that the dogs have also made moves AND have that wily Fox Gus who would not have tipped TPJ out to paddock for no reason…
He’ll end up a dog is my guess… although the tigpies may be a sneaky chance… how close was he with the Fultons?
Sounds like you have some inside oil. If so I take your word for it.Can tell you emphatically that he is not coming to manly 100%. Oshay staying as well.
regardless whether anyone chooses to believe it, the outcome will end up the same and he will not return to Manly.
