Yeah its not great. But I'm sure if he keeps working on it, he's sure to improve.
Especially when you consider the only thing your coach was known for was goal kicking.
Extremely frustrated fan. Try not to let my negativity get to you.

Moses has issues with his groin and so kicking for goal is not really an option.
Simona is about as good as me - and I am hopeless.

Best of a bad lot - think we were spoilt by Richards.
Moses won the kick off.

That is what happens when you take notice of people on the Forum, Mac .

I would have thought he would win but bowed to supposed superior knowledge.
Then it is the groin problem or not putting the added pressure on him.

Yep, Taylor wanted Rankin to kick because supposedly Moses's groin injury but I expect he doesn't want the extra pressure on him. Moses wanted to kick and won the kick off. Eventually Taylor got his way.

From what I have seen this year both Moses and Rankin have a long way to go in the goal kicking department, but I just think Rankin hits them better and is potentially a better kicker of the two

I wish that Rankin and not Moses had taken that field goal attempt against Melbourne.
