He played a fullbacks game that Moltzen could only dream about,and for those Timmy lovers,Wade got 2 tries,if it was a fight the ref would have stopped it by now.

great support play. it amazes me how he can come from nowhere to support a line break. had he not been taken off he wouldve got a hatrick because he wouldve been there when lui made his linebreak - mind u fafita scored anyway

So nice to have a real fullback :)

Enjoy him while he lasts.
I doubt he has much life left in the NRL.
He is our only actual NRL quality fullback though... so of course he's first choice when uninjured.

Agree MOM today just ahead of Heighington and Marshall IMO. His support play is second to none, if he just had the pace he had before his knee reco and hammy problems he'd be brilliant. As it is he was excellent today and the Tigers style of play suits him very well.

You're a bitter, little man, aren't you?

Take your advice champ and go home, cause you're soft as.

Everybody should pray to the gods that his hamstring does not play up anymore. We really need him given Sheens' reluctance to play Brown at fullback when he is injured.

Has always been safe at the back. The difference today was that he went looking to support players in attack. He is the no. 1 for 2011 for sure.
Give Moltzen time to find his feet though - he is a great player.

The important thing about McKinnon's game is that he positions himself well in both attack and defence. This is not something that can be coached, as it is something that is instinctive. He is the best in the Club.

He always makes meters with the ball, and is not afraid of taking a hit-up,
Knows how to bomb certain tries too.

How does a thread for McKinnon turn into another bagging Molltzen again?
Kul is right - nobody ( well maybe one person) thinks Moltzen should be playing fullback.
McKinnon deserves all the praise he gets - he is just a great fullback.
Showed his class and calmness again yesterday.
As for Moltzen bashing - go to all the other threads already devoted to bagging him.

If he play the last 2 weeks we beat the titans and make the broncos game at least a tight contest

A specialist fullback is worth their weight in gold in the modern game. I don't care how slow he is, he is brilliant
