This is mental. Leads the comp despite 12 games. It's defense that generates offense. Before he kicks a goal he is worth roughly 1.5 goals a game.

Think about that. It's utterly bonkers.

12 games and been sub a few times too. Coaches were definitely too conservative with him imo, but better late than never to rectify it.

Fudge, the sub games make it even more crazy.

It's probably over 2 goals almost 2.5.

It's already a historic number but it doesn't tell the entire story.

Bakes said something similar on SEN this morning. Seeing him inspires the rest of the team.

This.
They get around him at every opportunity. After the game you see jack and lynch get there arms around him straight away.

The kid works so hard, it would be hard as a team mate to not be inspired by him.

Moju simply a joy to watch playing. Every time this kid gets near the pill or more importantly near an opponent who has the pill. There's an intake n hold of breath n everything pauses for a moment of anticipation waiting for the explosion of Moju in full attack mode. Kid plays sneaky attack n silent assassin mode so well.

If the Bombers are in a bad space mentally after all that's happened, a charging Moju is the last thing they will want. Expect their defence to play hot potatoe with the ball tonight.

Is it a lack of pace, a lack of awareness, or simple inexperience that causes him trouble with the ball?

Do you really think he has a lack of pace?
His body needs to catch up with his mind. I have said it before, but so much he does is almost.
But even without him getting a touch, what he does off the ball is valuable.

He's a touch fumbly and lacks penetration in his kicking but he is tracking magnificently

Needs to be within 30m out otherwise can't make the distance any further out. Tony shaw can kick it further than our mj

He struggles to break away when he has the ball, even though his little legs are pumping. Hopefully it's a lack of awareness rather than pace.
