He missed the rest of the season including the grand final still a sore point with many Balmain supporters

The media are trying to harp on a nothing situation, with the News Sport reporter saying " Mitch Moses sure to attract the attention of the Match review Officials after Man handling the Ref in last nights game ".

Seriously :shock:
It depends who you talk to on this Forum, if you are Optimistic? it's because your delusional and need a reality check. If you are Pessimistic? Your accused of being a negative Nancy and to go and follow another Club.

The incident Blocker missed the '88 Grand Final for was a high tackle on Penrith's Chris Mortimer. When he patted Eddie Ward on the head in 1990 he got 4 weeks suspension and $5000 fine, didn't miss any finals matches from it though.

Sounds like Happy needs to buy you a referees jersey with your favourite refs name on the back Watto :lol:

Nothing in it, like others have said he backed into him and there was no intent. Unlike the Klemmer situation.

As for his banter, he has always been like that it just comes with the personality. Just like Benji had his swagger in his hay day. He will settle down with maturity, for now I don't see him crossing any lines. I'll take it so long he continues his impressive form.

Obviously there is touching and then there "TOUCHING" a referee, all down to the intent/interpretation.

I'd like to see him pull his head in a bit, and just play.
Has more ability than I first thought, but seems to love talking himself up at the moment.I agree that either JT or Woods should be having a word to him. Before the head gets too big.
Easy champ, if u watch Mitch play throughout his short career u would know he's always been a talker. That gives him the edge he needs, got suspended for it in a early rep game. Doubt he's going to change to soon!
He's like ennis but no where near that bad...
Even though no big fan of Ennis, I think he got a bit more of a right to have a say on the field( and most people just laugh at his crap anyway'. )He's been first grade standard for a long time. Been there done that.
Moses is still in the process of becoming a first grader. All things point to him doing just that, but until he's got some more experience under his belt, he should let his football do the talking for him.
He's still got a long way to go.

Beg to differ FTB - the incident at Brookvale where Roach patted Eddie Ward on the head, kept Roach out of the Grand Final that year. Can still see it at the scoreboard end / grandstand side about 15 metres out.

Balmain tried everything to get him off and have him play in the Grand Final. They were going to fly him to the UK to play a couple of games so he could play in the GF but the League wouldn't allow it. That is my recollection of it.

Don't need to now - I think most are on board with Mitchell finally.

Sorry mate but you're wrong and FTB is correct. Your recollection of the UK attempted dodge is correct but the suspension was due to the hit on Mortimer in the 5th place playoff.

^No Russell, he didn't miss the GF for patting Eddie Ward. That incident happened 2 seasons after Blocker missed the '88 GF. He flew to England but the NSWRL refused to let him play a few games as a guest of a Pommy club (Warrington I think it was) so he never got on the field in the '88 GF, he listened to the game on the radio over the telephone whilst laying in bed in England he reported in his autobiography.

I was at the ground that day when roach was sent off. We got a right doing and had 11 players on the field at one stage and still should of won if Russell Gartner has another yard of pace.

Roach being suspended cost us the 88 gf. Roach would have sorted Paul Dunn who was best on ground that day and would of killed terry lamb. Roach was a scary individual, a pinch off being a lunatic. But could play.
