TEVITA Pangai junior has a plan to try and join the ranks of the best middle forwards in the game.

And his process revolves around two main pillars - preparation and consistency.

"I just want to be more consistent and that comes with preparation," he said.

"I just need to be more prepared for every game, and be making sure I am doing everything right during the week.

"That will make sure I am at my best come Friday night or whenever we are playing."

New head coach Anthony Seibold has spoken to Pangai about 'closing the gap' in his performances.

Opposition defences are going to be much more aware of the big forward than they were last year in the wake of his breakout season.

So being better more often is the key for him.

"I struggled with consistency a bit last year and 'Seibs' has spoken to me about closing that gap," said Pangai.

"About making sure I am getting a seven or eight out of 10 every week.

"That's what the best players in my position like Jesse Bromwich and Jason Taumalolo do.

"You don't know when they have had played a bad game.

"That's what my aim is for this year."
