Freddy shuts down question over NSW halves


Mitchell Moses and Jack Wighton had a tricky act to observe in Nathan Cleary and Jarome Luai, however NSW coach Brad Fittler rated their Origin III efficiency “nice”.

Moses was on debut at halfback and Wighton was taking part in his first recreation as NSW five-eighth. Whereas they could not have delivered victory, and had a clunky pairing at occasions, they each had good moments and left Fittler happy.

He stood by his name to not play South Sydney pair Adam Reynolds and Cody Walker, who would have provided a longtime partnership within the absence of injured Penrith pair Cleary and Luai.

“No, I believed Mitchell Moses had the kick for the [Api Koroisau] attempt,” Fittler mentioned, when requested if the Rabbitohs halves might have fared higher.

“Jack Wighton scored a attempt. So I am undecided the place your argument is.

“I believed they had been nice. I used to be actually pleased with Mitchell Moses; I believed his defence was unbelievable. They threw quite a bit at him.

“On the finish of the day, I do not know what the [possession] line was, however loads of it was in defence, loads of it was below fatigue.

“Lots of Mitchell’s defence was excellent, and Jack Wighton’s. There’s at all times two sides to a recreation.

“It was laborious to inform who stood out for us tonight, there have been loads of blokes working laborious. The sport was quick.”

Regardless of the stable move mark from Fittler, Moses is prone to be caught as a back-up No.7 into the long run, with Cleary locked in as Blues halfback.

Wighton was promoted from the bench utility position to exchange the injured Luai. He linked properly with Moses for his attempt early within the second half.
