Is Moses ready

Unread post by Snake » Sat 28 Jun, 2014 8:20 pm

With Teddy going down is Moses ready for the big show? I would lean to Austin but Mitchell has shown he is a more than a capable no 1.

Ide go with Moses and warm him into NRL. Austin is not naturally a fullback and got found out a few times last night despite his massive effort, he's also a bit slow for fullback. Despite his size i would give Moses a go, I mean Rowe isn't much bigger and we gave him a shot.

I saw him get creamed in reggies today

He'd get that every week in firsts

No way is he ready for week in week out

Give him a taste off the bench against the sharks

He is ready. Anasta played great but Moses should be out there. I'd play him at 6 not at fullback.

He got hit late right in the ribs when he wasn't expecting it by noted NRL hard hitter Joel Edwards. Is that what you were referring to? I actually think Moses is a better defender than Brooks at the moment. Moses was really good today in D.

In saying that if we're blooding anyone next week it needs to be Manaia Cherrington. Especially with Austin likely playing fullback. Cherrington was superb in the NYC today. I'd have Luani at 9 and Cherrington off the bench.

We don't need 4 bloody hookers in the team mate. Halatau/Austin/Luani is more than enough.

He is not ready for mine.

Has a lot of class but gets bullied in defence at times and takes selfish options. Why was he going for a short restart when up by 14 tonight?

Maybe a bench spot at best.

He got hit from behind about 10 secs after he passed the ball. If I had my way Edwards would be sitting out for 2 weeks for that spineless play.

Mitch dusted himself and played on.

I have no issue with his toughness.

Unfortunately Tigers played too much to Stevens side today.

Moses is more solid than Benji when he Debuted
Moses has many skills and creates a lot of opportunities

Austin slow? I think you were thinking Galloway. Austin isnt slow. Close to the fastest in the squad.

its not 2005 anymore, the game is becoming increasingly more physical and tough with better athletes. its hard to make comparisons from 10 years ago, kind of just have to do it case by case.

here, i think moses is almost ready to debut, but not at fullback with woods and farah both out. Rowe could fill in? he was looking okay in his last couple of games before teddy came back, finding his feet finally.

Although austin played very well, there was almost 0 game plan by the raiders centring around targetting the fullback which is EXACTLY what any team from now on will do when they realise a 2nd rower/half is playing 1. And he'll likely be caught out a few times due to inexperience in the position.

Rowe is out injured as well, I think he's out 4-6 weeks
