Moses named in World All Stars team

Wests Tigers would like to congratulate five-eighth Mitchell Moses on his selection in the 2017 World All Stars team to play the Indigenous All Stars.
The match will be played on Friday, February 10 at McDonald Jones Stadium, Newcastle.
Moses’ selection in the squad caps off a stellar 2016 season for the Carlingford Cougars junior, who was named as the Player of the Year by the Club’s coaching staff and playing group.
The 22-year-old recorded six tries plus a team-high 18 try-assists and 15 linebreaks in 2016.
Since making his first-grade debut in Round 17, 2014, Moses has missed just one game in two-and-a-half seasons and is certainly a worthy selection in the 2017 World All Stars team.
The in-form playmaker made his senior representative debut in the Prime Minister’s XIII in September last year, recording a hat-trick and 20 points in total in the record victory.
Moses will become the sixth Wests Tigers player in history to play for the World All Stars.
