Saw a photo of Aloiai in a no. 12 Sea Eagles jersey. Could this mean anything? (Initially, he played backrow for the Tigers)

Pretty sure they pass the same jersey around for the shoots mate (because the number isnt visible at the front) so I think you'll find that the players are lined up and they swap the jerseys on and off.

I've been to a couple of these and this is usually the case.

Just have to have Sirro running better lines on the edge and trying to link up better with his outside supports instead of last season "s regular cutting back on the inside and then play just breaking down with really nothing runs . Also concerned with Jake being probably one of the least effective attacking 13 's in the comp , can never doubt his defensive capacity but taking the line on as a 13 is a different matter and maybe a change of position for him and he is an excellent support forward . That is where even Siro might go O K as a 13 . Jet Ski would have gone well as an older style type lock but entirely different role now . Surely time for Olokau - au and Burbo to show that they are really up to consistent i st grade standard .

Sirro went downhill big time when he became a ball hog. Go back to inside/outside lines, and pass the fkn ball to your outside supports. If he was under Des’ direction to play like last year, then Des needs a rocket up his arse as well.
The bloke I’m hoping/will have a watershed year is Guacamole. Again Des’ usage of him last year was mind boggling. If Des takes the reins off, I can see Guaca going gangbusters.

You know Jake lead the league (tied with Cam Murray) for try assists and line break assists for lock forwards with 5 and 6 respectively........

Or are you simply talking tackle busts?

Perhaps but he is too slow in this new touch football game and could be one of the games best props. Also brings Schuster into the team.

No , i was not aware of those stats , recall that Jake put A F B and Paseka away with some good select passing and maybe a couple of other instances which was quite effective . But yeah on tackle busts , almost a non event from my recollection . Did not help with the way Des had some of the attacking patterns going last season and with Jake going on many a dead end run and just with the way the 6 again really compels plenty of sharp direct ruck running and quick play the balls , Jake "s style of go forward is quite limited

I think Jake shines in attack when he is part of a very good team, e.g. in Origin. For nearly all of 2020, he had no creative players, except DCE, around the ruck to combine with - no Turbo, no Fainu and no Walker. At the start of this season, there will be Turbo, Schuster, Foran & DCE and I expect Jake's attack to improve significantly. I also expect the team to score more tries this year, especially from kicks. If Fainu returns and all the aforementioned playmakers are available, we should have one of the most potent attacks in the competition.

Jake missed is combo with his brother last year. They are deadly when together.
If Tommy stays fit and Schuster gets game time Jake's game will improve.
We will destroy middles week in week out.
