WESTS Tigers coach Jason Taylor says Mitch Moses has led the way at pre-season training in a clear indication he will continue to take his game forward in 2017.
Five-eighth Moses had a breakout season in 2016, during which he became the most influential playmaker in the side that missed out on making the finals by just one point.
Taylor says he has impressed upon the young players in the squad the importance of using the pre-season preparation as not only a means of getting fit but also building on performance and that Moses had grabbed the initiative in that area.
“Mitch took his game to another level last season and now he has taken his pre-season to another level as well,” Taylor says.
“We’ve got some young guys here and I’ve talked about improving our standards over the pre-season. This pre-season for Mitch has been one of the first ones where he hasn’t carried an injury into it and has been limited and he has taken his own training to another level.
“And he has helped lift the standard of the whole squad.
“He has been training really well and I’m not just talking from the skill side of things, I’m talking about the physical side of training. He has really led the way.”
