Wests Tigers Coach Tim Sheens has moved Tim Moltzen back to full-back for the round 23 clash against the Cronulla Sharks at Toyota Park on Sunday, August 16.

Lawrence still in doubt

Can those who are familiar with the lower grades bring us up to date. Is this a good thing or a bad thing?

Lui is amazing in NYC

a massive 5/8th with a killer kicking game

Small Gee up 😆 Nice one

has been the stand out half by so much it isn’t funny in the whole nyc comp. however is still only 18 and struggles with defence even at that level.

wouldnt surprise me if actually defends at fullback

It’s not a gee up. Didn’t see that coming!

Man o Man. I guess its not a massive risk against the Sharks, the way they are going, but it will be interesting to see how he goes this week, and whether or not he gets another shot next week against Parramatta if he lives up to expectations! Im guessing the other 15 will be the same, instead Lawrence to play centre!

Stupid move.

Moltzen is a fantastic fullback, but him being at half is what light a fire under the team, why move him for some prospect from U/20’s?

I hope Lui carves up, but this isn’t the time of year to start experimenting.

Is Tim Sheens possessed? This is not the Sheens we know lol.

I rate Lui big time, but I think its a very bad time to reshuffle the team.

Hope it works out. I don’t think Moltzen actually likes playing fullback. Just a vibe I seem to get when he plays there.

Post the full team here, whoever bothers to watch the vid.

No this is the same old Sheens, bringing in big prospects when they are ready.

Bulldogs killed off Ben Barba by bringing him in too early, and he’s gone from a can’t miss player, to a premier league bench warmer in 12 months.
