    Yep. I can never work out why he doesn’t do this more often.

    His defence has improved but he’s never going to be a great defender.

    In 2019 Moses missed an average of 4 tackles a game and was 4th worst total missed tackles overall in the NRL. In 2020 he missed an average of 3.3 tackles a game and was 6th worst total missed tackles overall. A slight improvement.

    I would assume most of the "worsts" are all halves

    its not really their job to defend so its a reasonable stat

    I suspect most of them are intermediate products in the brewing process.

    Moses’ has an option in his favour for 2022 which is fine by me. The ball is literally in his court.

    Reducing missed tackles by nearly 20% is a significant improvement. But he has also improved his ability to limit post contact metres and quick play the balls, which isn't evident in the stats.

    I think a little bit of fitness but also something that does concern me with coaching is when they talk about managing way through the game. Don’t give merkins that crutch

    Rheed started to run in the last 4 or 5 games. I expect that more next season.
    Rheeds kicking game is far better then Grants. A player can only work on so many things at once. Most important for Rheed was his biggest weakness. And that was defense. He would miss 5-7 tackles a game. As a coach I would go ok whats stopping him from playing NRL. Forget how good everything else is the most important thing to repair was his defense. Is that fixed? YES.

    So you move on to the next part of his game. And that's kicking. And what did we see? We saw Rheed starting to kick more. His placement more often then not was excellent.

    Now this off season the coach will move onto the next two areas he needs to improve. Running and support play.
    The is just how it works in NRL for players who debut very young. They simplify their game and let them focus on one area at a time. And by the time they have 4yrs under belt they generaly begin to put it all together. By year 5 they start to master it.

    Rheed looks smarter to me. I could be wrong but I think Grant might fall into the Segyaroo trap where he runs to often. Seen to many of these explosive hookers who have great debut seasons untill other coaches get enough tape on them. Then they slow them down.
    I like a hooker who can kick long and short. It really puts the defense in two minds.

    I remember on an episode of 100% footy when Gus was defending Waqa Blake from criticism and said he would hate to defend alongside Ferguson and Moses.

    That's exactly the number of bricks in a 600 x 600 mm panel. Coincidence?

    I want to suck Guthos c**k as much as the next Parra supporter but he had an average game by his standards. Go back and check the voting in our forum.. he got a couple of 1 votes but that’s it and we are only judging on half the players on the field.

    The judge (Believe it was Kimmorley) had watched a game which to be fair was pretty close. Gave 3 and 2 to the two dominant forwards in the game (Brown and Paulo) and a point to Brooks who had his best game in about 3 years.

    Well me too, obviously, but I draw the line at giving him points when he doesn't deserve them.

    I’ll join in and give him a rusty trombone but if he wanted to win Dally M he should’ve played better
