    Lots of changes to the QLD side.

    Holmes to wing, Allan to FB, B.Lee to Ctr, Capewell to 2RF, Sua to bench, Lui drops out of squad and E.Lee on standby if Coates doesn’t pass the captains run. Munster declared fit to play.

    (C)ook
    Papa
    Crichton Kaufusi
    Munster
    Capewell
    Teddy Allan

    0k

    Happy enough with that. Tossing up whether Collins/Jurbo is better than Papa/Kaufusi.

    Loved reading MTB and Milchs thoughts on origin. As someone whos only become a full time league fan over the decade it was super interesting to get your views on it. Hopefully its a cracking game tomorrow! Tipping nsw 13 plus.

    NRL site reporting Aloiai asked for release and reportedly texted Tigers management : "I have no desire to represent the Wests Tigers organisation or put a Wests Tigers jersey on again”

    Something not right at Tigers. Too much of this kind of crap.

    Josh Aloiai has posted in Twitter a meme of his head on someone else's body moving the grass and says "I'll make it a super fast track boys"

    What the fuck is going on at the Tigers?!

    I feel like there are two sides of the story here and the truth is somewhere in the middle (typical of most rugby league stories I guess), admittedly I have only seen a few bytes of info about it.

    It was only recently he was proclaiming his commitment to the club?

    I feel like the club is trying to be more business smart about contracts, but they're getting walked on by player managers and are just not handling the negotiations well.

    EDIT - i think this is at the core of the problem

    "Aloiai's manager Tyran Smith had asked for more than $600,000 a season, well above the $450,000-a-season extension the Tigers offered for 2022 and 2023."

    When Matterson wanted out. Tigers said they'd only let him go if they got something out of it.

    End result: Matterson left and Tigers got 0 in return

    They've said they'll only let Aloiai go if they get something out of it. I suspect he'll walk away to Manly and we'll be kept short.

    Honestly I hope they don't release him. Make him sit the year out if he doesn't want to play for us. Fuck these players that want to shop themselves around mid-contract.

    But if it keeps happening, then would you sign any young player to a long term dea, without paying massive oversl. If they perform well they'll likely try and leave for more money, contract or not.

    The key part here is "for 2022 and 2023"

    If Aloiai wants to go for more money once his contract is up, then that's his business

    If you haven’t already, do yourself a favour and watch the Denan Kemp (Bloke In A Bar) Podcast with Brandon Smith… It is a great watch and a great insight into the Storm culture. Goes for 90 minutes and worth every single one.
