    I don’t rate Moylan on his collective performances but for the brilliance here and there he’s definitely got a lot of talent

    If he hasn't played like this since 2016 then he's not NSW best player. Simple.

    The ability to be a great teammate and bring your best week in, week out are verifiable qualities Moylan doesn't have.

    If Dave Taylor played his best game every week then he'd have been a weapon. But he never did because he didn't have the neccessary mental strength or the guts to sweat blood and tears on the training paddock and then the footy field every week.

    The same applies to Moylan.

    He has played well since then. Just in patches.

    2016 was his absolute best over a 10+ week period where he was pretty much MOTM every week like Hayne 2009.

    He did it while out of position though. He has a long way to go consistency wise. But once he has confidence he is half way there.

    Knights have been utterly brained. 4th spoon in a row would be disasterous.

    The standard of the opposition must always be taken into account.

    Well he got 3 Dally Ms last week, perhaps a bit lucky, but was much improved. He was OK a fortnight ago. And brilliant today. Will certainly get 3 Dally Ms today (I know it is just the Dally Ms, but still, shows he is trending in the right direction).

    He has been injured much of the year and hasn't had the same spine or left edge to work with virtually two weeks in a row, so I'm OK with his patchy form for this year.

    But I hope this game starts another run of form like his 2016 run. I'd be delighted if he plays half as well as today for most the year.

    Knights just have way too little experience with Pearce out to cope with a team like ours on a roll. They looked better the last 5 minutes, but really found it hard to shift momentum most the game.

    For us, Graham and Lewis both looked better for their enforced rest, and our spine and attacking structures looking a little more settled.

    Shame next week is Origin affected, otherwise the Sharks v Rabbitohs clash could be a classic. As it is, should be good, though Souths might be down 5 or 6 players.

    Let me guess Hutty if any St George player scored a hatrick in any NRL game they will not be pumping their chest.

    We'll never know. One of our wingers hasn't made a line break in about 5 years and the other is semi-comatose.

    I reckon that is the worst I’ve ever seen them play today. I reckon the 1999 Wests side would have given us a touch up today.
