He's been played out of position at halfback since Quadja left. In a team that's completely void of talent it's hard for a playmaker to stand out. His defence needs work, no doubt about it, but his attacking potential is obvious to see. He just needs someone else to do the organising as that's absolutely not him and he makes himself look bad while trying to fill that role

Is it a case of him playing a role that doesnt suit him or is it Cleary asking him to play that role for a year to try and improve those aspects of his game?
That could be a good point.

I think he deserves a good crack it though.

Don't think Lichaa would want to play ISP all next season myself. He'd be alright for that though.

We need a good ISC hooker who will quite possibly play the majority of the first grade season when Liddle goes down....

Kaysa Pritchard? Michael Lichaa?
We aren't getting Friend. SMITH or anyone of that calibre so time to start thinking realistic.

Liddle ain't going down.

Being realistic - how would Lichaa or Prichard feel about a whole season in ISP?

It seems to me, if he put on a little more size and worked on his defence, he could be a lock? He is clearly more dangerous running with the ball than passing and kicking, and if you look at blokes like Radley or Aubusson, he's not any smaller than them, but they just have superior timing and technique.

Reading your posts Demps, and it appears to me that you wouldn't know a footballer if you fell over one.

Still, you are entitled to your opinion as are the rest of us.
Why waste your time with his post?

I know what I've seen and what I've seen from Gamble, he will never make it...

All the Lichaa talk is because hes a realistic signing that we could actually achieve. Sorry I don't suggest some unrealistic impossible suggestions with actually no hope of ever happening. The guy defo hasn't hit the ceiling either. Some of you guys live in a little dream world.
Greg Eastwood would be a "realistic" signing too but that doesn't mean he'd be a good signing...Lichaa has largely been crap in first grade and would not improve us.
Ok buddy... Enjoy having Godinet or Taylor playing hooker next year.
I don't know why you see it as a choice between Lichaa and Godinet or Taylor. There are good hookers on the market: the Warriors have intimated they won't re-sign Luke; Manly are in cap trouble and Koroisau went to Manly with Barrett who is leaving the joint; and Segeyaro is moving on from the Sharks. They are all much better options that Lichaa. If Liddle wants the first grade gig he can bide his time or demand selection through form ahead of someone like Luke, Segeyaro or Koroisau.

It's such an important position that I'd rather we not just hit and hope with Liddle or settle for a numpty like Lichaa as an alternative.

Indeed he has. No need for trolling posts from members either - it won't be tolerated.

Behind Brooks and Reynolds, this kid is probably our next best ball player. Of course because he debuted in the trial vs Cronulla and only scored 1 try in a game we were dominated . . . then his next NRL game was against Newy where we were utter dross . . . . well because his debut wasn't spectacular enough for some here . . . well, he's just no good.
Hey, we should look at Rona !!!
I really hope he comes good and gets a fair chance to show off the blatantly obvious talent that he has.

A lot of us saw a lot of him in reggies this year because there was a lot of it on TV....just calling it as it was seen
I too hope he comes good but have yet to see this blatantly obvious talent...that frame is a weapon

Looks like he has been busy in the off season, would like to see him progress further. As I have said a few times he reminds me of a Luke Lewis type of player who well end up a good ball playing forward.
