But how about his defense?

For a slender kid he hits hard and often!
If defence is the best thing that a 5/8 Has going he's either still green or struggling. Anasta was a great defender, yet people still wanted to lynch him. A 5/8 needs more than defence to hang his hat on
Anasta was in the last couple of years of his career and was as 'good' as he was ever going to be for the Tigers. Moses is 20, has played a handful of first-grade games and hasn't even finished developing physically let alone as a footballer. It's pretty obvious that there's no reasonable comparison to be made here.

Moses shanked it going out the back against Para at least twice.
He's got his chance for now. But he can't have too many more like that.

Having said... show me a 5/8 or a centre that is actually really playing properly well.(By traditional standards) Game is now won by size, the bomb, and getting it into the corners. (And greg inglis who is an exception to the rule)

Look at an match now compared to early 2000s. Different game. Slick backline play is all gone. Centres are always held up in goal, average players have mastered tackling more skillful players. You also have guys like Willie Mason at 115kg doing 15 minute spells running at backs who have too slog the full 80 minutes. It's all backwards. It's why a rep player as good as Josh Morris goes a year without scoring. It's why Chris Lawrence looked so slick in 2007 but seems so crap now.
Teams do not go physically flat, they go mentally stale...

Lol wait until Brooks and Moses are both 25 and champions with back to back premierships.

Seriously though ... Tedesco and Brooks alone is better than most clubs have. I will be happy if Moses gets to the level of an Aiden Sezer. If he becomes JT then party time. Slater, Thurston and Johns spine.

Yep, Up she goes then study a thousand replays in slo-mo to justify the reasoning not to award.
