I'm happy with bench Ink. I nearly fell off the chair when I heard Buchanan's name earlier. I'm 58 and think that I can run faster than him! Although I am a fan of Aku.

Mate Lodge will get announced just before the NYC game.

Wests Tigers are pleased to announce that Matthew Lodge will make his first-grade debut this afternoon against the Penrith Panthers.

Lodge will become the 176th player to play first-grade for Wests Tigers.

The 19-year-old will come off the bench against the Panthers this afternoon..........

will Moses & Anasta rotate positions sometimes when wests-tigers are attacking?

as a fullback i expect him to be chiming into attack near their try line, so yes to some extent.

Solid debut playing out of position in a difficult match. It will be interesting to see whether he moves to 6 with Anasta out, or whether he stays at fb and Austin gets a run at 6.

Don't make him fullback again until he gets some bench work. His positional play was awful. It was almost as if there was no fullback in defense.

well, I thought more of Austin last week at FB than Moses today. Either way, with Anasta's injury, we should see Moses somewhere in the side against Manly

Just back from the game, Mosses went okay and will be better for the run, offers so much more than a couple of other players we have in the backline. He is a confident kid and really backs himself.

I agree. Fullback is not his position. Five-eighth alongside Brooks is. However even if he plays 5/8 what is the use of great service from your halves if your next pass goes to centre plodders like Lawrence and Lulia? If we are so short of centres there is a case for Moses to be selected in the centres for Friday.

Holy crap he was good when he had the ball in hand. Very confident and tough. Obviously with talent as well. Can't wait to see more of brooks and Moses together.

I understand your logic but Matai or Lyon? That would be a cruel trial by fire...

Into the halves and pray we can shift Halatau out there or something... we have depth in the pigs to spare him, and has enough class to do the role justice.

He should be in the squad every game. I'd play him at 6.

Not a FB and shouldn't be picked there but there was a moment in the first half, A 1, 2, 3 combo between Mitch and Luke that was just sexy.

If we can keep JT on the field, Luke's going to be laughing having Mitch running off one shoulder and JT the other

Pick him in 6 on Friday. Austin did ok against Canberra as a makeshift 1

The fact that Moses stayed at FB when Anasta went off injured indicates that Austin and Brooks are to be our halves pairing Friday. Farah will be back so that'll help everyone.

Wow this kid is going to be something, wherever he plays. Wasn't scared of contact in the slightest and was not overawed at all in his debut.
