    One of only a few Blues players that can hold their heads up in what has been an abysmal decade for NSW

    If there were more BMozs in the Blues team , or if all his Blues teammates put in the same effort as Brett, NSW would have won more than just 1/12 series

    Has been a good rep player, congrats to him on what he's achieved.

    Reality is he wouldn't be picked next year unless there were alot of injuries. There's quite a few players in front of him.

    Congrats to him on his career and his decision. We (Dogs) really need to get a return of investment of his signature, something we haven't had as of yet.

    He's was a dud buy. Terrible recruitment. Lost his speed and has nothing more than experience now. Terrible dh running, drops bombs, drops balls with an open try line.

    He's dropped 1 ball with an open try in his 3 years.

    No doubt, it happens to the best of athletes in any sport. But he still dropped it when he should of swallowed it. This is just another mark against him in his massive downfall.

    So 1 dropped ball in 3 years and you use it in an argument? Everyone makes mistakes. He has been ripped off with getting nowhere near the ball that he did at the Dragons. Still our best back along with his brother.

    I think that this is a bit weird to say the least..

    The Bulldogs are coming 13th on the NRL ladder, but have three repping in the Origin series. Of them Brett Morris and David Klemmer were two of the best on field with Josh Jackson giving the best he could as he always does no matter who he is playing against.

    Who should we ask why this is? Des or the players?

    Congratulations on a great rep career B Moz.
    You deservedly held the title of the world's best winger for a long time, so full credit to you.

    As a mad Blues supporter I will never ever forget that 2014 performance in State of origin from both you and your brother.
    It still makes the hair on the back of my neck stand up just thinking about it. It was unreal.
    If only some of those other clowns who have pulled on the blue jumper in the last 12 years would have played with the same pride & passion that you & your brother showed us that night then we might have snagged a few mote series wins.

    Well done B Moz

    I'm using it as 1 point in a long list of points.

    He has been a massive disappointment and a dud buy. Terrible value for money. I would take so many wingers in the game ahead of him atm when considering the salary cap.

    I'm not suprised with his massive downfall as i expected this when we first signed him. The signs were already showing. Also put rep footy ahead of the club.

    I get what you're saying but that's more because of the poor recruitment by the club rather than their skill. If they're were on the open market today I reckon there would only be a handful of clubs interested if that.

    Knights would be the only club interested unless they took a massive paycut.

    Yeah, they're really the only club I could think of unless they headed to ESL. Pretty much most other clubs have superior backs to us.

    Who wouldn't put NSW ahead of the Bulldogs with the shit style we play? He never gets the ball.
