Moltzens strength at the back is his ability to chime in and ball-play. He isn't as a dynamic runner like Slater, Hunt or Hayne. With guys like Tuqiri on the wing I would be passing to him as well. As said, teams kick to box the fullback/winger on one side of the field. A long pass opens the field up that play as well as the rest of the set so you aren't working out of your corner against a jammed defensive line. I don't have a real problem with Moltz in that area though I think he is a little unsure of himself under the high ball at the moment and that can be dangerous.

Goalkicking will continue to be an issue. Unfortunately Marshall isn't as reliable as some other kickers in the league at the moment, though I am sure he is trying his hardest to rectify this. He does seem to be the best option at the club and probably needs a few closer to gain some confidence and needs to make sure he doesn't rush himself.
