Chris Heighington is back to the form he displayed in 2009! Handbrake heighington always stops before the defensive line. Runs at the markers only and is stuck in the mud in defence have a look at the ease that Casey Macquire ran around him...when opposition run at him all good either side of him he is in trouble.Interchange at best when Fulton returns!

From that youtube clip i am loving the look of Lui and can't wait for the season to start.
I'm a big Moltzen fan but i can't see him getting anywhere near the 7 jersey.
At this stage it looks like the utility back spot that Sheens likes to run with on the bench is looking good for Moltz.

when making that judgement, are you taking into account his many missed passes and dropped balls?
Most of that footage was taken in the second half when we were winning the forwards battle. In the first half lui was non-existent and offered nothing when had the ball.

Not saying moltz would have done any better, but it is concerning

Bring on Saturday!

Judging by the first half, no tigers where existent... And there isnt a Halfbck in the comp who can put themselves into a game when there forwards are losing the battle for momentum. Further more, it wasnt up until round 11 last year we started holding onto the ball.... He has another 12 weeks to get that right!

Where was our brilliant star playmaker during the first half.... thinking about the Anzac Teat already???

Considering the fact that Heighno was still limping around a couple of weeks ago, I was shocked to see him take the field at all! Very harsh indeed!

Way too harsh to be giving Heighno any flack after 1 trial game considering he's just coming back from off-season surgery as Mrs T has mentioned. All the Tigers were flat against the Eels and I expect they'll be flat against the Roosters too.

I guess you are referring to Benji? The same Benji that has been voted the "Golden Boot" for 2010. You know, the best player in the world. And was also voted by the general league public as the best player in the competion. Do you mean that "brilliant star playmaker"? Or was there some other "brilliant star playmaker" playing in this TRIAL game?

Thats the one... He has a crap game and does nothing, but escapes the wrath??? Hardly seems fair considering his Salary is probably 4 times that of young Lui...

At the end of the day, its a trial and a chance to blow out a few cobwebs and get some timing. Judging selective players based on a personal agenda is pretty poor.

I love Benji by the way!!!

While i agree with your sentiments about Lui and the forwards having no momentum in the first half, why critise Benji to make your point about Lui.

It's just my opinion, but that was the best i've seen Benji play in the first match of the year. While it was late in the first half and in the first 10 minutes of the second half, Benji threw some beuatiful passes, and generally looked sharp.

He sure did. But you can't please some people.

Interestingly enough the Tigers did not get tackled inside the Eels half until the 22nd minute of the game according to Peter Gentle on WTV. With that sort of start to a match it's no wonder they were down 18-0 so early. They simply had no ball and the forwards didn't get into the game until the second half.

It was 33 mins gone until we actually held the ball in their twenty...(Was there once orr twice before in the first half but lost it early)...Lote eventually scores in the corner.

We had little to no ball in the first half.

Stop worrying guys, its a trial it hardly means anything. Trials are there to knock off cobwebs and to trial combinations. Besides i really do think the Eels are the team to beat this year.
