AGENT’S DEMAND TO NRL
PLE ASE CONSIDER MIT CHELL’S WELF ARE
THE manager of Wests Tigers five-eighth Mitchell
Moses has complained to the NRL and the players’ association about his treatment at the club and overall welfare.
Moses was not supposed to play for the Wests Tigers against South Sydney on Friday night which probably explains why he had such an embarrassing shocker.
He missed seven tackles and didn’t run the football once.
At training last weekend, coach Ivan Cleary told him: “This will be your last session.”
That he would then be free to join the Parramatta Eels. Moses rang his manager
Isaac Moses to tell him what was said but a few days later still nothing had happened.
So Moses fired off an email to the Wests Tigers and copied in the Rugby League Players Association and the NRL.
It had, according to the player agent, become a welfare issue. The kid was mess. He didn’t know if he was coming or going.
We tried to speak to Cleary about this situation yesterday.
He wouldn’t speak on the phone but exchanged a few texts.
Buzz: I need to speak to you about Mitchell Moses please.
Cleary: Sorry mate but no comment.
Buzz: Did you tell him last Saturday it was his last training session? There was no reply. Cleary, for all his results at the Panthers and Warriors, is not renowned for dealing with delicate issues and dramas. At least at Penrith he had Gus
Gould to step in and help. At the Wests Tigers there is no one. Players’ union boss Ian Pren
dergast said yesterday he would speak with the Wests Tigers’ management this week to try to resolve the problems.
