Good signing however one thing that has come to mind from this.

I find it interesting that the club can find the money to pay a fee to the Tigers (that isn't included in the cap) to get Aloiai released, but want to charge members double the price for home game tickets in 2021 because they are struggling financially...

I'm all for anything that will lift the quality of the side... I'd rather pay more to watch a great team than receive a free ticket to watch mediocrity.

Couldn’t agree more we were dished up an absolute pile of **** this year so Id be happy to pay more to see a side that actually gave a **** to turn up!!

I reckon we have the side to give things a red hot crack if we get a decent go with injuries to key players.

I think so too. Although NSW Health will do it tough without us propping them up financially with our injuries like this year.

To be realistic and forgetting the stats, Alaioi is an energetic forward who runs smash balls and takes stopping, plus wins quick play balls, which will no doubt suit Tom , DCE and the modern game.
Will be a fan favourite imo and most importantly a bloke his team mates will appreciate.

Suaalii backflips for Chooks​

NRL: Teenage prospect Joseph Suaalii has backflipped on his contact with the Souths so that he can instead join the Sydney Roosters.


Manly recruit Josh Aloiai has spoken for the first time about his contentious move to the Sea Eagles, saying: “I want to bring some aggression.”
Aloiai has signed a three-year deal with Manly after a messy divorce with his former club, Wests Tigers.
News Corp has been told that the relationship between Aloiai and Wests Tigers management deteriorated badly over the past month.

Despite some argy-bargy from both parties, Aloiai was never going to remain at Concord, despite being well-liked by teammates.
Aloiai has already joined Manly but is yet participate in his first official team training session.
“I’m looking forward to bringing aggression and helping out where I can,” he said.
Aloiai wanted to sign with Manly immediately after a meeting with Sea Eagles coach Des Hasler.
“After speaking with Des, we really clicked. I really want to be part of what he is trying to get done at Manly,” Aloiai said.

“I am just keen to play my role for the team and to repay the faith Des has in me.”
Aloiai will add some starch and vigour to a Manly side which fell away badly in 2020 due to a horrendous injury toll.
After allowing Aloiai an early release, Wests Tigers signed Broncos forward Joe Ofahengaue to a three-year deal.

Aggression - that’s what I want to hear.
