He has a very solid but safe game.

What we need is an 'x-factor' in our fullback, like a Slater or a Hayne. I would love to see Moltz run it back more times than none. His support play in '10 and '11 was brilliant, they rattled defence with the outside inside play. Maybe that play is done and dusted. But Timmy doesn't have the same support play he used too.
It's all well and good to have a talkative fullback, like some have mentioned its why Moltz has the 1 over Teddy. But if he's yelling at players and not encouraging them than I'd rather have a quiet fullback in Teddy and let Robbie do the talking.

I think criticising moltzen for his talk is silly given potter has said this is one of his strengths -so whatever he is doing here ( and it is a huge part of the fullbacks game).

Agreed....I see a lot of so called experts admonishing Moltzy for his talk,yet Potter has said this is something Teddy needs to work on.

Moltzen had a good game last night & thats all he has to do as far as Potter is concerned. Some people just dont like him, Teddy might get his chance on the wing this week.

I think it comes down to Moltzen having been caught out bagging his team mates with his talk previously when the chips have been down.

His support play is non existent for a fullback, correct or not?

The bar is very very low for Moltz
An error free game for him = a blinder

25m in attack and 5 tackles this week, 55m and 3 ackles last week and 55m & 10 tackles in the first week is all you need from a fullback apparently. but of course stats aren;t everything, he adds sooo much else...

He was solid but Tedesco offers a lot more. Speak of the devil he just scored a hat-trick in NSW cup

Was just watching Tedeso he is a formula 1 car compared to Moltzens pair of rollerskates.Hopefully it wont be too much longer before our best fullback is in first grade

We are losing a minimum of 10 metres every time he catches the ball because he runs heaps of metres laterally to marry up with a winger rather than go flat out towards the opposition tryline. Ask any of our forwards what they would be doing if they had that much space to work with.

they're not all amazing, beale is still on his way up, robinson, locke, minichello, zillman. They're not exactly a whole grade above moltzen right now. But tedesco is defenitely the better player.

Think about how good Tedesco truly is in reggies so far. He looks like an international at that grade. Would Moltzen? Not in my opinion.
