Liddle needs to put on weight. He makes cameron smith look like the Rock. He wont hold up for a full season the way he is.

Hahaha too funny!!!!! Giving credit where it is due. Having a couple of bourbons. Family drama. StArting pissing myself when I say this! Well done. Good call. When Liddle is back our perception and comments no doubt will change!
Do not go where the path may lead go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.

Brooks to hooker - Nooooooooooooooooooo!!!!!!

Not a good enough defender.

What is wrong with Liddle??????
I don't see the point of Brooks at hooker but this is an interesting one, re his defence. My view, possibly controversial, is that it is generally easier to defend in the guts as you big men on both sides of you and it is very hard for the attacking team to isolate you. Even when they do, at least there is only one option ... run straight at you.

Brooks defensive problems come from when he makes the wrong call and then as his body in the wrong position to bear the attackers weight. I doubt you would see that problem in the middle of the park.

But yes, like you I would much prefer seeing Liddle as our 9 for the foreseeable future.
Absolutely Brooks could handle defending in the middle. Just as well as any small hooker. I wouldn't suggest playing him in front of Liddle either but think he may have to move positions to continue his career.
He is a nugget with good speed also tackles well front on. Liddle was the best junior hooker coming through he has to be the future. You need a specialist these days I don’t think Brooks has the toughness for the 9 jersey.
You might right about toughness. I just think if he has another average season in the halves his options as a halfback may dry up.

I think Brooks has a good year. First full season with a decent coach and he has Benji and Reynolds to assist. If he can’t get it done with this forward pack he’s done.

I really hope he does. You can see he has the ability but lacking in confidence.

From what I've been told talks are progressing very well.
Good to hear you are usually on the ball. RTS would one of the first players we attract sought after by numerous teams. Aside from the player it would be a good sign that the days of quality players avoiding WT are over.
Good point about being the first highly sought after player to sign here, would change the landscape completely for us
IC's presence as coach has changed the perception of the club in the eyes of players imo. His ability to get the best from players and the loyalty players such as Matulino and Packer have demonstrated towards him puts us in a good position to recruit players.

Liddle has apparently put on 5kgs in the off season. He could manage 35-40 tackles a game when he was mid 80kgs. He's now at 91kg which is pretty good. He'll fill out a bit more still over the next year or two too.

As a comparison Smith is 92kgs.

I dont see why he should be. He has performed very little to prove he is even capable of being a consistant first grader let alone a lay down first choice in the sport's most complex and dynamic position. I hope to be proven wrong as I only see an adequate player in him, not the potential superstar others do.

Superior to Mcilwrick in attack even
In his rookie year. With added muscle his technique in defence is good he will be a solid first grader. IF he stands up and delivers it frees a bench spot for Marshall we can’t carry two hookers.

Liddle has increased his weight from 85Kg to 91Kg, so he has put on a bit of muscle. I see in him, with the benefit of a couple of seasons in NRL, a future Blues hooker. You'll see.

I agree with you I rate Liddle has all the skills.
That’s a lot of muscle for a young guy 6kgs on a 6’0 frame is a lot of hard work over a hot summer, Impressive. Looks more solid on the Tigers website pre season photos.
