    2) Lately not playing to his size. Gets out muscled too easily. Overall movement seems impaired as well.
    Looked great when he first came in, to the point where I felt he was the obvious successor to Reg. Now not so sure. The injuries might have taken a permanent toll (hope not!).
    The point is he doesn’t lack for size. Whether he’s been playing that way is another story. The same way he doesn’t lack for speed, but has looked slow at time’s. I think a lot of can be put down to form and confidence. We know he is capable. He just hasn’t shown it much in recent seasons ( injuries have also played a big part ) .

    A few years back he was looking like being a solid replacement for Reg but injuries have put a dampener on that :-(

    My opinion is that he doesn't play like key back we hoped he would become. He may have height but not convincing defensively

    According to this SMH article ‘Aliir could not be considered due to an injured toe’.

    Some other interesting bits make this worth a read. And you might notice an editing clanger.

    He seems to lack confidence.
