IMHO, Moltzen has showed again why he cannot play FB.

On the other hand, don't wait until tomorrow, sign Utai, Bell and Moors today :D

Hahahahahaha I knew this would happen. Moltzen makes one mistake and everyone rips in. You people are unbelievable.
Blair was disgraceful. Benji misfiring except the try.
Koroibete makes like 2 errors and 2 tries and no one says anything.
Moltzen makes one error and 2 tries in a game and people still knock him (obv not this one)
I got nothing agains koroibete but it's a bit stupid when you single him out.
He had a fine game get a grip.


Posted using RoarFEED 2012
Koroibete had to catch the ball a mile above his head, with a shoulder coming his way. We had the pressure on, two points down, and he has to catch a ball that's down his throat with absolutely no pressure around him. What happens? Whoops, dropped the ball and, lo and behold, we find ourselves six points down. And it is not just one mistake, it's EVERY WEEK

Hahahahahahahaha you are out of your mind.
Koroibete trips before the line on his own feet, loses the ball 2m out from the line in consecutive weeks. I don't even want to single him out because I don't think he deserves criticism either.
It's pathetic to blame Moltzen for that game at all.
He hasn't had a dropped ball since the Panthers and before that the Broncos in rd 6.
Do you people even watch the game?

Did you watch the game? He cleary gets ankle tapped and stubled a good 10 before he fell.

Moltzen mad an error no first grader should make. If Darren Locker had dropped that he would be copping just as bad

Utai has a lot to offer a football team. He made yards all night and one exceptional run.

Utai was outstanding. His runs are so invaluable.

He was great yet again. Definitely our biggest unsung hero of the season. It would be sacrilege not to see him given a new contract

Utai was amazing in attack, and good overall, feel harsh being critical, but watching the replay they shifted to his side on kicks that led to a few breaks, and they got around him and Blake a few times.
That said he was good and his carries got us on the front foot all night.

I've been a Utai fan for a very long time. He was outstanding once again. He either makes ground or drags 2-3 defenders on every single tackle. The forwards get a massive lift after he takes a run early in the set. Hard to believe we have re-signed Moltzen for another 2 years and Utai is still un-signed?? :crazy

IMO, if we won the game either Utai or Farah would have probably got man of the match. I hate golden point. Nothing wrong with a draw and 1 competition point each would have been the next fairest result considering the idiot video ref robbed us.

Geez he made great yards last night. I don't know if Id re-sign him though. Id re-sign him for sure. Although its not a priority area with Koro and Ryan already re-signed for next year.

He ran for over 200 metres last night. That'd be close to a career high for him. 10 tackle breaks too.

The thing about Utais runs are they get other guys going forward. If someone makes a good run, roles forward, gets a quick play the ball, the defence is generally going back and it opens the door of the next person to make good metres. The other few players who can do this in our team are BMM and Koroibete. Heighno makes a living off running behind these guys, but for example, he's not big or strong enough to do that first run and get us going forward.
