Moore is a good kicker. His %age this year is a tad under 70% which is not that good this year, but Rovers do in fact score a tremendous number of tries out wide. It's the way we play. No-one can expect regular touchline conversions from their kicker. He's also struggled with some niggling injury that's affected his kicking and has at times given away the duties to another player.

 

Rooney has always been a very reliable goal kicker, and his stats show he is up there with the likes of Don Fox, Deryck Fox, Terry Clawson, Stuart Dickens as good quality kickers at Fev.

 

For mine, he's not quite in the elite group of Cyril Kellett or Steve Quinn. No disgrace in that, they are our two all-time greats.

 

In fact, we've had EIGHT different goal kickers this year. Can you name 'em without looking 'em up?
