Not a great back rower, but went better than he has at centre for a long time. Hoeter really showed the spark at centre that we've been lacking.

And he's still backing into tackles... at least he's learning to twist on the way down now.

Bench probably the best spot for him from here on, he may well improve on that 2nd row performance which would be good.

Except when meant to be helping Moses Tackle the Giant Pritchard. And instead coming out of the line to take the inside player as USUAL!!!!!!! And conceding the try...
Sorry has been doing it for years and needs a rocket up him to stop it!!
Hold on, so he's got to mark his own bloke, and Moses' too?

I'm hardly going to criticise defenders if Moses gets isolated 1:1 and can't stop a big bloke at the line. This is always going to be dodgy, because the inside runner can get the ball too. Either Moses gets big enough to have a shot at these guys, or we are always going to concede a virtual overlap. It's why we used to put Benji to the wing.

Talk to Lachlan Coote about bringing down a big fellow short of the line, he nailed it on Saturday.
