Moltzen

Post by citizen cub » Sun 17 Mar, 2013 4:58 pm

Has copped significant criticism of late, and rightly so.

Credit where credit's due though, he played pretty well today. Good to see a vast improvement under the high ball, an area which has troubled him for a while now. Defence and support play also fairly solid from what I saw.

He was in my top 3 today. The kid can play he just lacks killer instinct and favours self preservation. Today he had a real dig and was impressive in attack, defence and general positioning.

Went good against an average team. I'm tipping panthers to get the spoon. Not getting excited over this game. If we beat Melbourne or manly in two weeks then ill be impressed but still worried they are capable of dishing up what we got against Newcastle which goes to show the consistency issues are still there.

Take your point, but he can only do what he can with the opposition he's been assigned.

BTW I don't think the Panthers will get the spoon, try Dragons, Warriors or even the Raiders the way they're going.

He played well.......solid if not outstanding. If he can build on ths then that's gotta be a good thing.

He had a dig today... Solid is how I would describe his performance. Nothing brilliant but did what was required of him.

I hope he keeps it up.

To be honest I'm normally a supporter of moltzen but he was solid at best today but he passed it off every time at the back - bring in tedesco and we will be better

Agree with this Boonboon. That pass to Reddy in goal when he had no one in front of him was totally unnecessary and bloody ridiculous! We were just lucky that Reddy had the reflexes to catch it, cause he sure wasn't expecting a pass in that situation.

He took a few unchallenged catches he didn't have to jump for and made only 29 meters our wingers made him look good and tedesco should replace him next week

Metres made by our back 3
Kori - 217
Reddy 132
Moltzen 49 (& most of them were from that 1 dropout return)

Not once do I remember him actually trailling players through the ruck looking for an offload.

He did catch a couple of bombs today though so that's a good thing. It was probably a pass mark compared to his normal game but compared to most other 1st grade fullbacks???

Caught every bomb Penrith sent his way and was putting his body on the line a little more. Would like to see him return a few kicks rather than turning the ball off to Reddy or Marika, but it was still a solid performance by Timmy today.

Moltzen was good under the bomb but did absolutely nothing in attack. In fact Reddy was a line break guru compared to Moltzen.
Depending on the injury to Galloway I think the team ought to be

Tedesco
Reddy
Ayshford (who played wellish)
Brien (cos Lawrence is struggling)
Korobeite
Marshall
Anasta (Cos Miller can't run on one ankle)
Fulton
Blair
Pettybourne
Woods
Farah
Buchanen
Bench:

BMM
Bell

Insert names for bench her cos we are in trouble if Gall is out.

Passed it off from the field of play to a guy who was a couple of metres within the in-goal. Unbelievable.
