Posted by The Sport BIBLE on Thursday, September 29, 2019 08:02:20A week before his return to the NRL, Matt Moylan has become the biggest surprise of the week.
On Saturday night, the Dragons prop, who will return to training on Monday after missing last week’s round of the NRL playoffs with a hamstring injury, was named the ‘Biggest Surprise’ of the past week by the NRL’s official website.
It’s a feat Moylan is proud of.
He says it was an easy decision for him to make.
“It was the biggest thing I could do to get back on the field and be back on form and to give myself a chance to perform,” he said.
“That was the first thing that I did to make sure that I was 100 per cent and able to continue playing and being able to be part of the team.”
Matt Moylan celebrates scoring a try against the Titans in the round three Grand Final.
After missing the week of the Grand Final with a groin injury, Moylan played in the NRL finals for the first time in the past fortnight.
“I had a little bit of a setback, and then the calf injury, but I think I’m doing really well,” he told the club’s official site.
“Obviously I have been able to play a little more, and hopefully I can carry on playing in the Grand Finals.”
Hopefully I’ll be able to get my head round that and put myself back in the team.
“And I think with the injury I had in the pre-season, I didn’t really know how to handle it at the start of the season.”
But then it was just getting myself in a good rhythm, and I’m getting my feet under me and I’ve got to work hard to get in a groove.”NRL Grand Final: Dragons vs PanthersTiger-Cats: Bulldogs vs RabbitohsTigers: Rabbitohls vs BroncosBrisbane Lions: Rabbities vs PanthersSydney Roosters: Dragons at DragonsTigers coach Leon Cameron says he believes the Storm’s victory over the Roostering is the biggest in the club history.
The Storm’s win against the Rooster was their fourth successive win, but the Storm were only in second place at the end of the last season, when they lost four straight games.”
When you look at the success that we had last year, I think you’d think that we’d be going for the title at the moment,” Cameron said.
But that wasn’t the case.”
The last few years have been disappointing for us,” he continued.”
This year, we have a lot of work to do to win the game.””
We are looking forward to our next match and I know that we will be looking to keep improving in our preparation and the way we play.
“If we can get that result, I can’t see any reason why we can’t get another result.”
“It’s just about getting better as a team and getting through games and putting in a better performance than we’ve had so far.”
Moylan’s NRL debut came against the Cowboys in the opening round of last season’s finals, a win which saw him win his third NRL double-winning season with the club.
“Last year we had a very good year and we were in the finals,” Moylan said.
We’re just trying to win games.””
We’re not looking to change anything.
We’re just trying to win games.”
