Wests Tigers forward Josh Aloiai said the side are staying positive and focused on the job at hand this weekend despite a disappointing defeat to the Newcastle Knights in Round 13.
One of the side's best throughout the 2020 season so far, Aloiai conceded the past fortnight had been an extremely frustrating one for players, fans and Members alike, but said there was still plenty to be positive about — starting with a must-win game against the Bulldogs this Sunday at Bankwest Stadium.
"We’re still staying ambitious and we have our goals since we’ve had at the start," he emphasised. "We’re not going to shy away from that and we’re still trying to get there. We’re just narrowing our focus week-by-week but also keep a real commitment.
“We’ve been talking about turning it around for so long and this week means everything for us.
“We’re disappointed but we’re not lacking belief or confidence," he said.
"We’re expecting to go out there and put in a really good performance.
"We’re still trying to do the right thing at training and tick all the right boxes, and we're still really confident in what we can do."
