I don't want to dwell on the negatives cos he was really good tonight, and i loved the way he stuck it to their parasitic fan base, but why does it take him 3/4's of the season to get going? he had an excuse last yr as he was coming back from a knee reco but what is it this yr? don't say its cos he trained for the whole summer at 7 cos thats garbage. He played the entire season at 1 last yr, did he develop amnesia in the off-season and forget how to play the way he did at the back end of last season?

Anyone else bags three to down the dragons there would be threads proFessing undying love everywhere. With moltzen it's crickets. The hate on the guy is near pathological.

Very true. You have to remember though that there are 3 or 4 posters on here with their agenda. If you disagree with them, they start the personal attacks.
Gets boring really.

Anyway, a good, safe game from Moltzen tonight. His positional play was pretty good and his support play, as usual, was above average.

And borderline shameful. I for one am happy to praise his efforts tonight. Well done Moltz!

As much as I love Beau Ryan as a player, if he played fullback tonight (like the vast majority of this forum seem to believe he should), in my opinion, he doesn't score 3 tries. Moltz's support play in attack makes him the best fit player we have for the #1, yet the hate continues for one of our own. I await the predictable tirade of disagreement on this point though ....

Thats probably because some people what he did, the way he acted and the way he brought crap on this club during the off season will never be forgotten.
When a man runs, cowers, hides and doesnt face up to his responsibilities, no amount of anything else will redeem himself - he needs to deal with his unfinished business that dragged the club through the sewer. Only then might some see him as a man - hard to respect right now - despite any amount of good footy being played

Rip in.

Bear in mind there are some on this forum that may have slight overtones of the P word. Apologies to any Muslim or Christian forum members but it is like a fatwah or holy crusade.

He's not the first player to do it and doubt he'll be the last. The panfer fans didn't let the Souths debacle diminish their love of "favourite son" Luke Lewis did they ..

I appreciate your point of view ink that his actions were not honorable, but the club obviously had some part to play in offering him an option to stay with us so I don't think you can blame the kid wholly and solely.

At the end of the day, he did what he did not for the money, but because he wanted to stay with his mates at a club he loves. I just think its a shame the supporters can't get past it and show him some of that love and support back.

Hopefully he grows in confidence from this and shows what I believe he's capable of.

Everyone's entitled to their opinion.

Just seems Moltzens name is like chum to circling sharks.

I initially thought that as well but when i saw the front on shot of the try i don't thinkanyone would have stopped Morris from scoring - he kicked before being able to be tackled and got a perfect bounce - the only thing Moltzen possibly could have done was hit at the ball as there was no way he was going to catch it.

With the Morris try if you watch the replay I think Farah has to take a fair share of the blame. When the bust is made instead of running across to put pressure on Morris he decides to cover the inside man, pointing and telling Moltz to tackle Morris. This forced the fullbacks hand and as soon as he advanced Morris chipped him, leaving him with no chance to turn and chase

I think some posters on this forum bring more embarrassment upon our club than Tim Moltzen could ever hope to do in a lifetime of contract talks!

Personally, I think his Manager has ALOT to answer for, and our own management isn't blame free either. Won't change the opinion of some who think they know all.

Yeah as I said from where I was sitting it was a bit hard to see, thought he could have done better initially. I haven't had a chance to watch the replay yet.

I would love nothing more than for him to play like that every week, contrary to what a few clowns on here would like to think. I may criticise alot but ill always give credit where credit is due. So well done to Moltzen on a great game, more of the same in the next month and hopefully longer.
