Foxsports.com.au examines the big issues each NRL club faces as they prepare for season 2012
Does anyone like each other at Wests Tigers anymore? Reports of internal ructions have helped to keep rugby league headlines ticking over this off-season, but, when it comes down to business, Robbie Farah, Benji Marshall and co will need to cope with the new tag of premiership favouritism. After spending two years trying to craft Robert Lui into a top-class halfback, the Tigers gave the errant No.7 the flick. Will Tim Moltzen, now happily a Tigers player again, be the solution in the halves? The Tigers have recruited heavily and will be under enormous pressure to find consistency in 2012.
I think Moltzen CAN be the solution in the halves….Ive seen glimpses of what he can do when he wants to play just before and at the line…has a great pass and can put a player away…it just doesnt seem to come naturally to him, only when we’re 10m out from the line.
I think it would basically be another couple of years before a possible premiership if we do go with him in 7…it will be a development process…
The #1 & #7 jerseys are the big ??? of 2012
Thats true innsaneink but hopfully it all goes gud.
I think Moltzen will be fullback. He played well end of last season and Sheens has always said he sees him as a fullback over halfback. So I think the big question is who will be our 7 and will someone step up. If someone steps up we will be a major premiership threat.

The thing i’m wondering is if we gain more by having Moltzen in the 7 jumper and someone else at 1.
Whether that be Reddy, Brown, Tedesco or even Humble.
I wouldnt be disappointed with Moltzen coming off the bench with one of the above at fullback and Miller at half.
The combinations are endless. Its not a bad headache to have.
