SYDNEY - Tim Moltzen believes new Wests Tigers coach Mick Potter is the man to unlock his full potential as a NRL fullback this season.
Potter made more than 200 first grade appearances for Canterbury, St George and the Western Reds as a fullback in a career that saw him crowned Dally M Medallist on two occasions.
Veteran coach Brian Smith once said Potter had taught him all about fullback play when he coached him at the Dragons and Moltzen is now benefiting from that experience. The 24-year-old's versatility has seen him play at centre, five-eighth and halfback since his debut in 2008 but it's the No.1 jersey he's targeting in 2013.
"I've worked really hard this season fixing up a few things at fullback as that's ideally where I want to play," Moltzen told AAP yesterday.
"Mick put it in my hands and asked me where I saw my best position and I've said fullback is where I feel best suited.
"He's brought in plenty of things that will help my game and pointed out things I need to work on in positional play and where to be at certain times, it's been really good.
"It's up to me now to be consistent and show him what I can do."
Moltzen was touted as a future representative player when he burst onto the scene in 2008, but a serious knee injury sustained in round five in 2010 kept him out for the season.
