The spirit of Mooney 🦅
New nickname….The Blemish!
Agree. I don't really get the Tuipulotu critics, he's not an out and out speedster but certainly there's a role in the modern game for a power winger. Vaega is more error-prone at this stage, and less experienced, but they both offer something.The guy had a good game...
Ran it strongly
Caught the high balls
Made some good defensive reads,the one try you can't blame him.Koula got lost and he had to come in and take someone,you can't just sit back,it took a brilliant ball from Nikorima to get the try.
He would have possibly had 2 tries as well but a couple of long lofted passes from Schuster went behind him which he caught anyway but momentum was lost,he was not too flat for them,just very difficult passes that Schu got slightly wrong.
Defending on the wing you are on a hiding to nothing,you are at the mercy of what your inside defenders give you.Agree.
