Well someone had to start one...


If it was Moltzen or Benji the forum would be in melt down. In Jason Taylor fashion ill keep it short and simple.

He is struggling and taking a long time to adapt to either Taylor's structure or the quality of the opposition.

Your point being?

I thought he had a great game in defence, kicking game was better than average and his goal kicking was 100%.

So you must be talking about attack. Patience is a virtue.

I suppose you want to swap him for a half back that can't play 5/8?

Long time? It's been 4 games and it was clear up until last night that the halves where told not to run the ball etc.

The combinations with the key 4 will take time especially since they all like to be the playmaker its getting them to play as a flowing team and picking their time that's the key.

The traffic thrown at him last night with Sue not playing as his inside blocker / support player was as good as a kid his size could have done and yet he still was trying to take the guys on.

Brooks and Moses had there best game together last night sure they didn't close the game down but that will be a learning curb for them, however they both showed positive signs to the way JT is directing them to play.

attacking while keeping up with an enromous defence workload is the hardest thing about moving into the halves as a young kid. look at milford!

and moses is still quite weedy, so he'd be having even more trouble. once he puts on a few and gets more comfortable in the halves (remember he played a lot of fullback last year) he'll be fine.

give it a year or so. this forum seems to want instant results from kids that were doing their hsc a couple of years ago.

Yeah, i dunno what the OP was watching but he had a couple of nice touches that nearly led to tries and his kicks were better and tell me he doesnt have a red hot go in defense!

That was the best game our 6/7 have had!!!

I reckon ten more games and we are gonna be grinning from ear to ear about our 1/6/7.

Haven't watched game on tv yet. But I can't help but think the team is missing the Scot prince type half who has a controlling kicking game. I think we have that with drinkwater.. drinkwater is what the team needs at the moment.

Can't fault his effort or commitment last night. 100% with the boot and it's clear our attacking structure is still a work in progress but there are promising signs.

How about you watch the game first - and then see if you want to get rid of Brooks into oblivion???????

Stayed tuned I'm going to comment in a few minutes on how everyone played in round Eight.

The common theme from the posts above is that most people see them as a halves combination. People are judging them as a collective.

Thats all good, i like both of them and the combination will great in time.

But Moses is living on potential not performance at the moment.

In a team without a strong fullback Moses would be great at fullback at this stage of his development.

There's no room for Moses bashing after that performance. He did really great.

Yea.

Out of all the players I thought that would cop a bashing on here I did not see Moses being one. He played well.

Do you realise a lot of members rate Moses over Brooks? I'd give him at least a year to develop.

Drinkwater is a bandaid solution. I want long term success not a win here and there.
