    Fonua to the centres in reserves - is that an indication that IC may 'rush' him back into 1st grade?

    I'd prefer Aloiai and Fonua to be in first grade but they should go well here.

    Fonua isn't in the top 21 or whatever players so I assume he isn't playing first grade this weekend.

    Sadly forgot all about it. Was streamed on nsw website

    Reading comments from people who did Aloiai played 1st 40 straight and was good. Grant strong. Lolohea kicked 3/3 including one from the sideline and had a try assist.

    Was 18-10 at halftime and Penrith we’re camped on our tryline most of the second half but couldn’t score

    I like the Aloiai playing 40 mins straight thing. He should have good stats

    It’s clear he was dropped to work on fitness imo.

    I didn't watch it but Aloiai is being played in the middle of the park. I think they should just leave him there rather than swap him to the edge.

    A scoreless 2nd half !
    3 tries to 2
    Watson HELETA (3m)
    Watson HELETA (33m)
    Jacob FELISE (39m)

    3 conversions.
    Tu'imoala LOLOHEA (6m)
    Tu'imoala LOLOHEA (35m)
    Tu'imoala LOLOHEA(40m)


    not according to the nswrl Vic.
    He & Grant were both replaced after 11 minutes which is not much for 2 starting props.
    Aloiai came back on in the 61st minute, so that's a very long time off.
    He was then replaced in the 71st minute - that's only 21 minutes of game time.

    Felise on the other hand - on 11th minute, off in the 61st and back on in the 71st.

    Perhaps Aloiai was a head bin case or suffered a cork, strain or a bad knock or the online interchange stats are simply incorrect, who knows?

    Cheers, that’s weird cause the tigers media guy who controls the twitter and was doing updates said that about Aloiai

    You'd hope the tigers (Magpies) media guy would get it right so perhaps the NSWRL details are wrong and they got Felise and Aloiai mixed up - but then Felise must have been on in the 39th minute to score a try ;)

    Every time I see Heleta play he seems to be a player that makes scoring opportunities possible,yet for some reason he never gets a look in fg,considering our attack is limited it wouldn’t hurt to give him ago .

    Saw the highlights and Aloiai missed a pretty bad 1on1 tackle for the panthers first try. Guessing that wouldn’t have helped his cause re getting a call up.

    Heleta reminds me of nofo, can score 2 tries but will probably let in 3

    Felise is a quality player isn't he. I watched a bunch of games at the start of the year and he was in my opinion the best prop out there.

    It’s one of a no. of things I don’t get re Cleary’s selections.If this kid isn’t ahead of Sue Grant & Rochow as a player I’ll turn it up.

    .....& another thing that pisses me of big time re Clearys r & r is y the fk he didn’t retain Tatola.This kid is a gun & it was obvious in the Balmain juniors & in our 20’s that he ticked every box & more than deserved a contract.

    In one of the early trials JJ looked the best forward on the field,after that I’m not sure why he never got another look in especially when you consider some of Rochow piss poor efforts.
