That tip on was full of arrogance. Gus gave it to him for that and rightly so.

Did bugger all today, our halves don't excite me at all.
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.

Last year half way through the year i described Moses as a poor mans Benji Marshall.

Then he put together 10 weeks of decent football.

However this year gone back to the same old rubbish.

Honestly we cant keep both these guys. I dont care who goes really but one of them has to if not both. As Andrew Johns said you can't keep paying on potential.

Even with our forwards on top thanks to Melbournes errors both of our halves produced nothing and starved Tedesco of the ball near the line to boot.

Sign Woods an Teddy and lets all move on. If only it was so easy. :?:

Edit. It was a good try from Moses, but other then that not good.

Pretty harsh comments, I thought he had a dig, execution could improve, he really needed to run a play for Teddy when we had that field position but he just couldn't come up with it. I think Teddy can also take the blame for that too, I know he doesn't usually have a bad word said about him and deservedly so but I thought he could of injected himself more when we needed him to today, I thought he was a bit off.
By the way, the passes Moses was receiving from Liddle were very ordinary, stunted our plays.

Watch a replay of that, if he tried to take that pass he would have got crunched and lost the ball, he had some serious heat on him and I think he did his best to try to create an opportunity out of a bad pass and bad situation.

With all of that ball possession in great field position due to Melbournes butter fingers, our halves should have ran 4 or 5 tries past them.
They failed. Then Melbourne woke up and ran 22 unanswered points past us.
Not much to be happy about.

Look have Moses and Brooks had their eyes tested , seriously ??

I have never seen blokes miss players 5 metres away on their strong passing sides so often

I think Moses needs a calm experienced player to back him up and take the pressure off him. A Blake Green/Kieran Foran type player.

The problem is Brooks isn't that kind of player, hes more or less the same as Moses but with a lot less confidence.

I like Moses he tries hard and can run the ball with speed and power for a little bloke. He went backwards when Brooks went off. Storm are a strong defensive outfit I was happy with the team this week.Had a real dig against superior opposition

Teddy tried the whole game, of course top teams will learn how to handle him.. But he did brilliant runs even if he did not score tries and was often backing up or acting as decoy. He is not the Guy who can turn water into wine.

I honestly think the attacking plays have gone out the window, last season we would see sweeping backline plays that would put Tedesco or a winger through a gap and we haven't done that the past 3 weeks and against Souths they exploited Inglis as he was injured.

One of the main problems I think is that both halves know there is no attacking talent in the centres. Once the ball leaves their hands, unless it goes to Teddy, it's 'play over'. Give them at least one creative dangerous centre and we might see a different performance. As it is, however, both halves are really looking very average. (I did think Brookes was much better today than in his previous efforts, however. Mind you, it's all relative).
It seems almost insane that these blokes might be earning around $15,000-$20,000 a week next year! Bloody hell!

Moses gets the vast majority of the ball in the red zone and doesn't exactly have a lot to show for it. The Nofo no try was about the only decent shape we've thrown up that hasn't been a sweeping move for Teddy to run in to an underlap because every team knows it's coming.
Brooks outplayed Moses today and I'd keep Luke over Mitch easily. I just feel for poor Teddy, you can almost see the bloke wanting someone else to help out so he can get the other 16 blokes off his shoulders but no-one is willing for 80 minutes. Mitch's price is driven up by a friendship with Ted and flash that amounts to nothing, send him to the Warriors and give Lolohea the 6 jersey he deserves.

Almost??????
It's utter madness!
I was going off my head watching that game. Those blokes on the left side of the field hardly saw the ball. Time and time again moses and Brooks went to Kev and Nofa against Addo-Carr. They've got one of the best hole runners in the game in Lawrence and outside him Suli - a potential star and frankly, Chee Kam runs hard too, and they rarely used them. :brick:
