Mitchell Moses made his highly-anticipated NRL debut in Round 17 against the Penrith Panthers, and didn’t disappoint, with an strong finish to the 2014 season that will have many excited about what the playmaker can achieve in years to come.

The Holy Cross junior — who spent time in both the NYC and NSW Cup sides for Wests Tigers during the year — capped off a strong season with a handful of first-grade games for the Club, despite playing most of them with a niggling groin injury. The NSW under-20’s representative spent time at fullback and in the halves as he covered for a number of different injuries, with his vision and quick handling constantly coming to the fore.

With another full pre-season under his belt, look for Moses to continue his strong combination with Luke Brooks, James Tedesco and Robbie Farah in the middle of the field as the seek to form one of the most deadly spine combinations in the competition.

Top Try — Round 26 vs. Cronulla Sharks

Crossing for his only try of 2014, Moses was clearly overcome with emotion when he touched down in the seventh minute of play against the Cronulla Sharks. The work might have all have come down to Farah and his deft grubber into the in-goal, but Moses still showed great acceleration to dive on the ball inside the dead-ball line, before jumping up to celebrate with his teammates at his “local” home ground in Leichhardt.

 

Best Match — Round 19 vs. Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs

For Moses to be named man-of-the-match against the Bulldogs in Round 19 — despite the fact that Keith Lulia crossed for a Club record four tries on the day — his performance against the 2014 Grand Finalists must have been pretty good. And it was. The 19-year-old had a hand in six tries on the day, slotted two goals, and also added two linebreaks as he tore apart the Bulldogs with 121m on the ground in the No. 1 jersey.

 

Magic Moment — Round 17 vs. Penrith Panthers

Making your NRL debut is every player’s dream, and Moses was able to achieve that feat this year against the Penrith Panthers in Round 17. Replacing the injured James Tedesco at his less-preferred position of fullback, Moses showed composure at the back and had a strong impact on the day — despite his side going down 26-10 to the mountain men.
