NRL Transfers: Manly make move on Josh Aloiai, Reimis Smith off to the Storm

Manly have identified Wests Tigers forward Josh Aloiai as a potential replacement for representative prop Addin Fonua-Blake, who suddenly quit the club at season’s end.
Aloiai, who celebrated his 25th birthday on Wednesday, is off-contract at the end of 2021 but is now free to negotiate with rival clubs for 2022.
It is understood the Sea Eagles have started discussions with Aloiai and have him at the top of their list as they look at bolstering their front-row stocks after Fonua-Blake cut his contract short to join the Warriors.

While discussions have centred around 2022, the Sea Eagles could accommodate Aloiai as early as next season. Aloiai just completed the first year of a new two year deal inked last year and has represented Samoa in two Tests.


He has made 90 appearances for the Tigers since making his first grade debut in 2016.

The Sea Eagles have also expressed an interest in bringing Aloiai’s teammate Luke Garner back to the club.

His early promise was stifled at Parramatta apparently...
Biography:
After initially starring for the Junior Kiwis in 2014, a hip injury in 2015 saw Aloiai's development delayed while at the Parramatta Eels — instead making his first-grade debut with Wests Tigers in 2016. A stellar rookie season would see him become the first player in club history to play every game in their debut year despite suffering a broken hand midway through the season. Aloiai would continue to increase his significance to Wests Tigers forward pack in the following years — making his international debut for Samoa in 2018 — and is closing in on 100 games played in the top-grade after a career-best 2020 campaign. He is signed through at Wests Tigers until the end of the 2021 season.

Anyone that says no to him must not have seen him play. He is a weapon and aggressive, he could be that forward leader we've been asking for. Apparently can throw a punch better than anyone in the NRL so could put a bit of fear factor back in our pack after the departure of AFB
