He was very good. Still don't think he is 100%. Once he completely gets over his knee injury he will start breaking the line.

Played a good game, but something about him still seems to be 'off'. Might just be me but I think he definitely isn't 100%, whether that's his injury or not

He is still very young and still finding his feet in the top grade ,but he isn't afraid to attack the ball .

He got belted by everyone ,even his own players (Simona) Surprised the ref didn't kick him while he was down

Thats the difference between Moltz and Teddy Teddy puts it all on the line

Think he got a cork and battled on despite the injury

His clean up work was brilliant. Give him time and his attack will develop too.

Tedesco's knee can't be quite right. At time's he seems to be caught slightly out of position or half a step away from catching the ball on the full.

That only happens because he's not at his full running speed, so it makes his timing just a tiny bit off. It's getting better though. The wet conditions wouldn't have helped either.

I just love watching his kick returns,

because he does kick returns, unlike Moltzen.

Can't get into the love fest yet.
I like the way he is always looking to back up (even though he is a little butterfingered at times)
My problem is his positional play in defence .
Say what you want but he is often out of position and scrambling to defend and still misses the odd sitter of a bomb that Moltzen would have been crucified for.
He is going ok and just that - really doesn't deserve all the praise being thrown at him -just yet.
I was hoping that Moltzen would slot in at half and Tedesco secure the back but Moltzen is gone and Tedesco is still running around behind the line looking like Groucho Marx with a cigar in hand.
He's been in first grade since the start of the year and shown not much else apart from the willingness to back up .
I am not questioning his heart - but he's not doing anything to write home about.

Poor CK still pushing for his little buddy Moltzen :roll
Tedesco 8 NRL games Moltzen 86 NRL games.
Tedesco = Champion. Moltzen well his Moltzen.

Newsflash CK. Moltzen is never getting that spot back >>>NEVER


Great game Teddy you really are a champion. Can see you learning all the time and so much heart great to watch.
Keep going maybe one day you could be as good as Hodgo or maybe as good as Moltzen after another 80 NRL games.

An outstanding effort in defence tonight; he was very safe all night under the high balls and the grubbers. Not a great deal in attack but pouring rain will do that .

Love the way this kid plays in particular the way he runs the ball back straight and fast from a kick. Getting better each week not quite upto Hodgo level just yet maybe in a couple of years
But definitely better than Moltzen.

When Moltzen was offloading to the wingers from kicks some people said that was the game plan...I don't think so I think that was just Moltzen's plan.

Is it because Hodgo could kick goals too ?
Teddy has a similar running style to Slater which is way different to Hodgos but the thing Teddy and Hodgo both have is courage. They are not scared to put their body on the line
I respect this, thats what a FB should be made of.

So far so good Teddy, keep it up.. Everyone here is proud of the effort you are putting in.

he gets in and has a go, and that's all we can ask.
gaining confidence each week.
we are watching the early stages of the career of a fullback who can achieve anything.
sit back and enjoy.

Yeh gutsy display last night...still seems tentative when changing direction or running in an arc, tiny steps it seems....when he fully stretches out and gets in the clear it'll be something.
Confidence = time
