Moses - "There's a new-found confidence"


  • ForumSupporter

    Having lost just three of their last 10 games, Wests Tigers five-eighth Mitchell Moses says there’s a new-found confidence in the team that they can keep their run of form going in the back half of 2016 and achieve the Club’s first finals finish since 2011.

    Moses, who starred in the Club’s last-start win over the St. George-Illawarra Dragons, said that a number of key results in the State of Origin period has given the team plenty of confidence in their ability — confidence which is riding high in the team at the moment.

    "There’s a new vibe around the team in the past couple of weeks," he said.

    "Everyone is really working off each other.

    “There’s a new-found confidence around the Club that we can actually push to the semis, and we’re a shot to make the semis this year. I think in that Origin period we were missing some key players and we knew we had to stand up, and we got a few wins in there which helped.”

    “I’ve been working hard on my game at training too, and it’s always pleasing when the things you work on at training come off in a game. My attitude has changed a little bit too, I guess, in terms of taking things for granted, and I’ve been training hard week in and week out.”

    Moses only trained for part of the session on Wednesday ahead of Saturday’s big game against the Parramatta Eels, but revealed it was only a precautionary omission.

    “Everything is fine,” Moses said.

    “My workload and kilometres were just really high after Saturday’s game, so the medical staff have just been managing me and and a precautionary thing more than anything.”

  • I reckon the media team at Wests release these articles for a laugh. Brilliant quotes, can be interpreted in so many ways….



  • He spoke will on Sterlo. He’s definitely a leader.

    @gallagher:

    He spoke will on Sterlo. He’s definitely a leader.

    Handled the questions very well I thought…



  • Has the demeanor of a future captain. Definitely has to be the priority after Tedesco.



  • Had to kaugh at hooper. Asking Moses about the junior grand final that he, nofo and brooks played in. Only for Moses to correct him that he didn’t actually play in that game. Lol
    He’s not even close to being a journalist.



  • He’s a future Origin 5/8 for sure !

    Love his confidence !



  • Good on JT for building confidence in the Team


  • Banned

    I hope he keeps improving on the field. Last week he looked like he was a real chance of turning into a quality rep half.

    There is a long way to go but the signs are good.



  • Hmm…certainly improving as a player but not convinced yet he is a future captain.

    There is something about him whether it be his brashness or cockiness that makes me feel he is “off-field” incident waiting to happen.



  • His form lately has been fantastic. Especially against the dragons. I wonder if JTs cohesion theory has merit? Anyway, he’s going to have to get even better if we’re to get into the finals this season. On a side note, Brooks is looking better too.

    Maybe the coach knows more about the team then the fans



  • Puts his heart and soul into defense.

    Really growing up



  • He is not short of confidence. I like that.

    The most important thing with Moses’s defence now is he keeps his feet these days , keeps himself as an active defender still , very important in the modern game
