    Moses named in World All Stars team

    Wests Tigers Media

    Wed 14th December, 10:30AM

    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.

    Best 5/8th in the World…Well done Mitchell…



  • Those back lines match up well. Should be a good watch provided the lineups remain relatively unchanged (they probably won’t). No Lachlan Maranta is a plus…



  • Great opportunity to showcase his skills.



  • Lovely to see a very talented player be rewarded for hard work and an outstanding season in 2016.

    I like a lot of others spotted this kid years ago, and have been behind him all the way.

    Good on you Mitchell - enjoy yourself, come back injury free, to start hopefully a brilliant year for yourself and the Wests Tigers in 2017.

    I am hoping for an injury free season for Ballin to help Mitchell’s game, by giving him and Brooks early ball.
    Also to lead Liddle through the early stages of what I would expect to be an impressive first NRL year.

    Congratulations Mitch - stay a Tiger for God sake and ours.



  • Both are pretty strong teams. I’m looking forward to getting down to the match if the sides remain relatively unchanged.



  • Call me selfish and yes its good that people in high places are looking at him, but to me it is just a promotional tool for the NRL, that the players outside earning a extra few dollars have little to gain except a injury



  • It’s now time for Brooks to take the lead from what Mitch is doing and lift his own game.
    Luke was the player that was touted as the future “star” of the game, but so far has failed to deliver.



  • Good luck to Mitch, these sort of selections will do him good. Confidence is important for playmakers and endorsements like this and PM’s team selection will be a validation of a good improved individual performance last season and hopefully a stepping stone to a great season this coming year.



  • @supercoach:

    And what is / was Origin?



  • Meh, these games are pointless. Half of those listed won’t even play and those that do will play exhibition footy in any case.



  • @bathursttiger:

    Luke was the player that was touted as the future “star” of the game, but so far has failed to deliver.

    Can’t agree on this one Bathurst. Though I think Brooks is going okay and a lot better than many give him credit for, particularly when they are playing in the shadow of the “next big thing” tag, Moses was always destined to be best. Showing as being very durable thus far has been a big bonus for him and now WT as he is starting to hit his straps.



  • Brooks played off the bench last year didn’t he?

    After this game Moses would have played in the halves with Mitchell Pearce and now Adam Reynolds (both played for NSW). Lets hope he makes NSW one day too.

    Also going to be interesting to watch his defense in this game with some quality players around him, although hopefully he’s not paired up with Cartwright in defense.

    Well done Mitch.



  • Good luck Mitch , please don’t get hurt



  • This is another opportunity to gain experience and confidence (not that this is a problem) I do agree with others it has its dangers of injury so early in a season .
