    Once again I ask, why can't the NRL work with the NSWRL & QRL with scheduling. Last week the NRL had Tigers v Warriors playing in Auckland, this weeek it's the ISP teams playing.

    Anyway, team list:

    1. Tu'imoala LOLOHEA
    2. Lucas PRICE
    3. Sam MCINTYRE
    4. Braden ROBSON
    5. Watson HELETA
    6. Tyson GAMBLE
    7. Pita GODINET
    8. Jacob FELISE
    9. Matthew MCILWRICK
    10. J. RATUVAKACEREIVALU
    11. Christopher MCQUEEN
    12. Luke GARNER (c)
    13. Joshua ALOIAI
    INT
    14. Thomas MIKAELE
    15. Cowen EPERE
    16. Patrice SIOLO
    18. Bayley SIRONEN
    21. Bayley FAULL


    Note: Remember when Manaia Cherrington was going to be the long term No 9 after Farah and from memory, made the NZ squad on end of season tour to England from Tigers reserves? He's listed as a reserve for Warriors ISP team as is Blake Ayshford.

    Not sure what happened with Manaia. Coming through the grades he and McIness were the 2 gun hookers of their age group. McInness is probably going to play Origin this year whilst Cherrington is playing off the bench in reserve grade. At the same age I thought he looked much better then Liddle. Strange how some guys just don’t kick on.

    No guarantee Liddle doesn’t go down the same path as Manaia.Im a long way from being convinced he will cement the no. 9 jersey long term at Concord.The one advantage he currently has assuming he can avoid getting injuried so damn often is his competition for the no.9 are shithouse.

    Heard Aloiai was a stand out which is no surprise, didn’t get to see the match. I honestly think he got dropped to gain match fitness on the edges as Cleary sees him as our long term 2nd rower

    Our best NRL 17 must have Aloiai there

    I watched the game. Aloiai was good. They played him at 13 up the middle. I think he might go better there.

    Maybe they were trialling him in that position, and leave ET at hooker? Though not sure what 7 mins would show you.

    Some round 10 stats for the 3 back-rowers:
    13. Aloiai. - 61 minutes - 14 runs - 151.9 metres - 51.7 post contact metres - 35 tackles - 1 missed tackle
    12. Garner - 80 minutes - 9 runs - 127.3 metres - 41.5 post contact metres - 33 tackles
    11 McQueen - 80 mins - 8 runs - 54.6 metres - 24.9 post contact metres - 34 tackles

    Based on those stats, Aloiai before the 11 & 12 in 1st grade !!!

    McQueen is really poor isn’t he. Should be doing a lot more work

    Even Garner seems to be streets ahead at this stage

    That's right Clifferd, imagine Aloiai's stats with 5 or 10 more minutes, let alone 19 - compared to McQueen. But in his defence, I guess we don't know where he is confidence wise with that neck injury.

    I'm not sure that McQueen is poor. He is an edge forward and sometimes they just don't get involved enough. I suppose the point is that he isn't very good. I think he could do the job in first grade but I'm not sure he is doing better than Rochow who isn't doing well now.

    The difficult issue is where to play Aloiai ? I think he is better in the middle because he can have feet as hands but we have a lot of middle forwards. I think we need to get the most out of him in first grade because he is a forward who can really dent the line and make a bust. He is better in that role than all our forwards.

    Stats can be very misleading.

    Edge forwards naturally make less meters and less per hit up then middles. Middles generally get the ball striaght from the dummyhalf and further from the defence. Edge forwards get it two passes wide and later, when the defence is usually 2/3ms from them.
