Jacob Liddle extends contract with Wests Tigers

Mon 5th June, 05:45PM


Wests Tigers are pleased to announce that Jacob Liddle has extended his playing contract for a further season, securing him at the Club until at least the end of 2019.

Liddle was already under contract for the 2018 season, and has signed a one-year contract extension to keep him in Wests Tigers colours for the next two seasons.

A former Australian Schoolboy, Liddle was a standout in the Club’s Holden Cup side throughout 2015 and 2016 — awarded the Club’s NYC Player’s Player award in 2015 before being selected in the New South Wales U/20’s squad the following year.

Going on to make his memorable first-grade debut later in 2016 against the Bulldogs, the Wyong Roos junior has featured in eight games for Ivan Cleary’s side so far in 2017.

Liddle said that he was looking forward to continuing his development with Wests Tigers.

“I’m really excited for the opportunity that Wests Tigers has given me, the club has given me the chance to develop my game both on and off the field,” said Liddle.

“Wests Tigers are a great club and the future is bright here, we’ve got a lot of players coming in and a lot who have helped me develop as I’ve come through the grades.

“It’s a nice feeling to have the security, it takes the pressure off and allows me to focus on my game as a player and to continue to develop,” he said.

Wests Tigers Head Coach Ivan Cleary welcomed Liddle’s contract extension with the club.

“Jacob is a talented kid who puts the team before himself,” said Cleary. “We look forward to Jacob being an influential player in the long-term future of Wests Tigers.”

Wests Tigers CEO Justin Pascoe said that he looked forward to working with Jacob into the future.

“Jacob is an impressive young man who is developing well both on and off the field,” said Pascoe. “We look forward to seeing him take the next step in his career over the coming seasons.”

I'm sure the management have learnt their lessons and sometime during 2018, assuming they are on the right track, they'll extend their contracts before November 1st and other clubs have a chance.

I also thought Tui was signed for 3.5 years so he'd come off contract at the end of 2020. I could be mistaken though.

I have been fairly critical of him, but I confess I am warming to him. He is improving with each game.
