In 2014, Wests Tigers fans finally got to see local junior Mitchell Moses, with the five-eighth playing the final 10 rounds of the season in the halves and at fullback.

Fast forward to 2015, and fans got to see the energetic playmaker make the No. 6 jersey his own — one of just two players to feature in every minute of every single game.

Moses provided 12 try-assists for Wests Tigers throughout the year and scored three tries of his own, including a fine two try performance against the Sea Eagles in Round 15.

In his first full season in the NRL, Moses continued to come into his own over the final few weeks of the year — finishing the competition playing some of most in-form footy — and with another full pre-season under his belt, will again be one to watch in season 2016.

Moses capped off a strong year with selection in the Prime Minister's XIII train-on squad.

Best Game — Round 15 vs. Manly-Warringah Sea Eagles

Moses stood out with a two try performance including a freak effort in the 73rd minute when he somehow kept the ball alive with a kick while being tackled, before following the play right to the end and eventually grounding the ball just inside the dead-ball line.

He also provided a strong cut out pass for his winger Kevin Naiqama to cross in the corner — a dominant display against a powerful Sea Eagles side at Brookvale Oval.

 

Season Highlight — Round 23 vs. Newcastle Knights

Moses provided another glimpse into the strong future of the combinations at the Club when he produced a sublime kick back against the grain for James Tedesco to score against the Newcastle Knights in Round 23. Off balance and under pressure, Moses showed his excellent short kicking as he registered another try-assist to the flying fullback.
