still doesn't run the ball back hard, still not confident under the high ball, still whinges about getting tackled but yes much better than previous performances...

Support play isn't good enough.
Heighno and Woods broke a lot of tackles, never supported.
Oh and Ellis, had an eternity to pass but no one was thereee
Only runs and supports the playmakers.
Fullback shld do more than that.
Excluding that, he did do SOME little things right.

And ye, best performance at fullback THIS year.

Moltz had a good game, if someone else had played the exact same game, the anti moltzen brigade would be congratulating him on a good game.

Well done, hope they let stay there for the remainder of the season.

With Tiquiri back this week, this issue will not matter. He can pass to Brown and Tiquiri all game for all I care.

His value was seen with Ayshford's first try. Benji on the left side of the ruck, but Farah could go to the right through Lui and Moltzen. This is what we need if we are to be a threat this season as we can't have all the attacking play going through Benji. Mackinnon does not have the capability to play as a second pivot.

Moltzen may not follow the ruck as well as Mackinnon, but in my opinion, the team is better balanced with Moltzen at the back.

while i don't like how he fields kicks,especially planting the bail out leg on bombs,he did well.
chimed into the backline and played a good role in 2 trys.

should be a real confidence boost for him.probably the best he has felt in a while.

Good game.
His support play and link play was decent and he was safe.

In particular he fielded alot of good grubbers due to good positional play.

All he is missing is the ability to run it back strongly instead of just giving it to brown.

A few planes are going to have to crash on the way to origin for that to happen . Possibly as a utility in the future but that future is a few years away yet

I dunno why anybody wants Moltzen to run it back hard, he'd just get picked up and pushed back if he did anyway. It's far better that he do what he does.

MacDougall - please don't feed the trolls. Logic is often not the best option.

Remember Hodgo - he wasn't exactly a Minichello / Karmichael Hunt type of fullback.

Hodgo was and is one of my favourite players ever. I wouldn't even joke like that.

or in Special K or Mini shoes either I hope Dugan goes to Roosters (which is very possible scenario ) and we chase Mini for 2 seasons until tedesco is up and running .Forget Vidot .
