Was it just me who noticed him standing around on the wing/centre for 3/4 of the second half? Then come in and make a run after 15-20 mins. Thought he was playing wing for a while,

He was good.... but he seemed to pick the little guys all night and gloat about dominating them, not much of an enforcer, crab-walked to find one.

Maybe I didnt notice it when watching him one-eyed, but I dont miss him...
If they're up against halves that can make a difference, part of his job is to smash them( just the same as Cordner did to them last year, also Pritchard, and others)
It's a fact of life, as Thurston would agree.
Taupau will get better as the season goes.
I totally understand what you are saying, but your examples are different. Cordner and Pritchard would go about their business and dominate after being positioned to run onto them, Tapau crabbed his way onto them, and lashed out at Moses when Tapau was innefective. Big difference.

His double tackle bust was through Sue and Grant I think, cannot take from that in any shape or form, but running onto balls into pigs he was kind of inefective otherwise... His 2 big plays of the game were crab and pick a little guy, nothing to be too proud of being his size.

Well said. Taupau looking like Dave Taylor mark II at the moment. I hope for his sake he gets better.

Everyone's got their opinion.
But you'll find that if any of the big guys can get to the little blokes, they will. It's why most of the better teams have a backrower riding shotgun on them, so they don't have to make too many of the big guys on their own
Tonight 31 tackles ... I try..... 2 missed tackles and 20 tackle breaks( only other player anywhere near that number of tackle breaks was Tedesco. ( also with 20)
He was good.
And as for Cordner, last year , he looked for Moses almost every chance he got .
As do most of the big boppers

Yep he was explosive alright with the ball. But at the end of the day:

He played better tonight than I thought he would. That said, he had his usual highlight moments, but we also targeted his side and came out on top despite losing his opposite after ten or so.

It is OK making big yards and terrorising teams

But look who Teddy stood up to score his third try , he has the turning circle of the QE 2 and if you get him flat footed you will get him every time

I think he's in some very good company that have and will be stood up by Teddy.

The ledger probably just come out in Marty's favour tonight. Nofa sitting him on his arse would of hurt the mirror-kissing ego more than a bit I'd reckon. Must.........get........bigger,crush.......smaller......human. Get to work Martay, the Sharks might have somethin for that.

Not worth 700k in my opinion, club made the right call here. He is going to struggle playing big minutes in the backrow which his pay suggests he will have to. He will need to play tighter either prop or 13 to be effective. Good luck to him though.

He got embarrassed 3 times by smaller guys early on. Nofo smashing him, Kev smashing him and making him drop the ball, then Moses palms him off to set up a try. Things were going great. Very disapointed we let him make a few breaks. But overall i just dont rate the guy. Again he showed he will cheap shot a small half but not any big guys. I genuinely belive he's a cat, and said this well before he signed with Manly when most here loved him, so its not sour grapes talking.
