Anyone who thinks these three are or ever will be first graders is living in a dream world - I seriously hope JT has the balls to get rid of these three and give Martin, Seve and Liolave a go. And before I get howled down with the " they are not up to FG " I would just like to say nor are three pretenders who are there at the moment.
the same Moses who got SG Ball player of the year? The kid who led Balmain to the winning the SG Ball comp?
The same kid who set up all those tries in under 20s origin and played alongside Mamo, Gutherson, Matu’utai?
Too many people are living in the past when it comes to Brooks and Moses. How long does it take to stop using what this pair did in a glorified touch football competition ( NYC) as a benchmark. The difference between the NSWCup and First Grade is big enough, but to say that they’ll be a star on what happens in the NYC is laughable.
Now we are using the SGBall, as a reference as well.
This is First Grade,
I think the point is that people say “under 20s success means nothing”, which is pretty accurate when it comes to first grade, but then in the same breath say “drop Moses and replace him with Martin because he’s killing it in the under 20s”
Besides, we know Moses and Brooks have it in them. We’ve seen them tear up in first grade. I for one am not using NYC as the benchmark, I’m using Brooks’ debut against St George and this year’s game against Souths, as well as Moses’ game last year against the Dogs and Souths again this year. It’s not like they’ve come up into first grade and shown nothing. The talent, quality and potential is definitely there, it’s just consistency they’re looking for. It’s also worth noting that the games our young halves shine in are the games where our forward pack have aimed up - something that hasn’t happened much recently bar the Souths game.
Moses and Brooks aren’t the problem.
