I guess we will see how it turns out for the Eels with Moses. I wasn't doing cartwheels when he was signed, but I'm not losing sleep over how it is going. Arthur will continue to work on his defensive issues, that is where Arthur is a sound one on one coach. Taylor was all about attack and was a bad fit for Moses. I'm prepared to bide my time before I judge the signing.
That said, I love what Gutho brings to the table, massive fan and not sure where he plays, but I don't think he will ever be a premiership winning half.
Back to Moses, it was not a great read at all last night with that Mannering try, but I also think the player inside him should have been closer. If you look at the numbers the warriors had outside, Moses actually had numbered up ok, but the warriors simply had the extra guy.
In attack, there was two crucial plays late in the game were Moses had called for the ball but Smith went away from him. The first one, Moses ran from strong to weakside and created a two man overlap but the play the ball was slow and went the other way, had he got the ball ive no doubt we would have iced (non pun intended) the game there. A couple plays later, Smith dishes it to a forward on the last who had a wall in front of him and was never going to get through when again, if he'd gone to either Moses or Gutho, options were there.
I think he kicked well last night also and never shirked defensive work.
He is a long way off, but I think when Norman returns and he can play the game Arthur wants him to play we will start to see him improve sharply.
