Unlike a few people here i actually agree with most of your ratings and comments (including Moltz's rating) but Moltzen didn't bomb a try with that push. If he hadn't of pushed him then the Warriors player would have gotten the ball. So he he likely bombed a line drop out and hence an opportunity for a try but it certainly can't be said he bombed a try due to the push.
Was going to say exactly the same thing!

It's obvious that what happened is Lui went off and Moltzen moved to halfback. The game then came a live with the Benji and Moltzen combo instantly paying off.
This is absolutely hilarious! If you honestly think this is what happened then you aren't watching the same game as everyone else.

:crazy Yeah Willow you are too harsh and next time keep your opinions to yourself :lol: :lol:
Next time you write up your match summary please only write what you think the majority want to hear, not what is on your heart and mind :lol: :lol:
Great report Willow....never read a bad one yet.

I like your reports Willow but think you're being kind to Lui - he got pulled of the field because he was having a shocker .... again.

Yep. The Willow report has gone down hill in a major way over the last couple of weeks. Two of the worst performers over the past 2 weeks have been rated highly (Robbie last week and McKinnon this week) and Moltzen keeps copping it.

Is that confirmed, or was he pulled because he had suffered and injury and couldn't shake it? Personally i think 5/10 was fair, yes he missed a few tackles once again, but he also set up the Tigers first try which counts towards something.

Moltzen was quiet and did nothing. McKinnon missed a few tackles but take a look at the rest of his stats...He was hardly poor. And given that Farah came up with 2 try assists and kicked the winning field goal in golden point extra time against Newcastle...well some people clearly have an agenda because the Tigers would not have won that game without Farah.

He didn't seem to be favouring it - looked as though he could still pass ok.
They might have put some " magic" spray on it that eventually wore off but I think it was his form - you have to admit he's had a real run of poor games.
The pass for the try wasn't anything out of the ordinary .
From memory Farah changed the direction quickly from dummy half to give him some time.
Allocating points is not an easy job and opens you up for criticism - but it also gives us something to talk about.
I'm happy for you to call it as you see it and let the rest of us discuss it from there.

No doubt Lui is not playing well overall. I like his passing game, he knows how to put a player through a gap and occasionally he'll sneak over close to the line himself, but yeah, his defence is terrible. He seemed to show improvement last year when Ellis came over to help him, maybe it was a psychological boost for him, i don't know, but he needs some help and needs to put his body into it more.
