It's a shame his knees are stuffed. Makes you wonder how good he'd be if they weren't.
Whats this about stuffed knees? Sounds like Ballin
Bone on bone apparently.

He has had a good season but may be seeking a significant increase given that the Tigers are somewhat cashed up. Hoping he re-signs but as stated above I doubt too many clubs are lining up for his services, maybe the Dogs as Lichaa most likely on the way out but they are shedding players anyway after signing Woods & Foran.

After finally finding a club where he given an actual shot at first grade is he rally about to uproot himself to yet another club? Would be doubtful, but his manager is no doubt trying to get him more $ than we're offering.

Is this another of these Official rumours. .
I like how Fox are ahead of the curve. ..Wests Tigers could take a lesson. ...

Well deserved Matt certainly puts in every time he has pulled on the jersey. .

We havnt officially signed him. Just a mistake. The fact he is under the resigned section shows its a mistake. He could be in a cooling off period though.

I really like MM and happy that we have signed him, however as much as he has worked hard and put in 100% I am not sure if his game will evolve to become a great 9. I'd like to see him add a kicking game and a little more deception - he needs to be making teams wonder what he will do next. Right now he is a little one dimensional in attack. D is great though.
As for Liddle, not seeing all that potential yet and hoping he's not another one of our superstar juniors that doesn't quite get there.

Hope have not paid overs for him. He is a tough defender but not sure that he is a top line hooker. I think he will actually be Liddle's back-up next year.

I think liddle needs an extra year. 2019 start him. Good signing.

o think over the course of this year and next we will see Matt and Liddle swap roles. With Liddle playing longer and longer minutes. A good signing as he wouldn't have been expensive and gives Liddle time to develop without having someone new come in
