Moylan set for return Written by TONY ADAMS, February 9, 2016

PENRITH superstar Matt Moylan is set to play his first game in over nine months in a trial against the Bulldogs this weekend.

Moylan hasn’t played since severely injuring ankle ligaments last May and there were real fears he could miss the start of the new season if he suffered another setback.

He travelled to last weekend’s Auckland Nines – but the new skipper was only a spectator and was never going to play.

But RLW has learned that Moylan is set to get a run in this weekend’s trial against the Bulldogs.

He is expected to only play half a game and if he gets through unscathed, he will be a certain starter for the premiership proper next month.

New coach Anthony Griffin won’t push the classy utility, however, and he will be eased back into football after such a long absence.

It is also unclear what position the local junior will play this season. There are strong reports that Moylan will shift to the halves in place of Peter Wallace which would allow new recruit Peta Hiku to wear the No.1 jersey.
