Season Review: Tautau Moga

It was another season full of ups and downs for nib Newcastle Knights centre Tautau Moga.

Moga started the year on the sidelines, with the young centre missing a total of seven weeks due to ongoing knee problems.

Once he did get back to full fitness, Moga didn’t take long to find his feet.

Moga eased his way back through the Canterbury Cup, where he spent 11 matches mid-season, scoring three tries. He also chalked up four line-breaks, 27 tackle breaks and four try assists.

His impressive form eventually caught the attention of the first-grade side, with Moga returning to top-flight football in the back half of the year.

His NRL form was solid, scoring two tries in his six appearances from round 17 to 22. He managed ten tackle breaks, a line break and ran for an average of over 90 metres per game.

The end of the season again spelt injury trouble for Moga, with a hamstring complaint seeing him miss the final few weeks of football.
