EOI : MATT PARCELL

Post by Demps » Wed 30 May, 2018 8:33 am

With discussions of hooker being one of our weaker positions on the field...

Do we persist with Liddle (injury prone, developing)
Whilst using Elijah, Godinet, Reynolds and ignoring McIllwrick in ISC.

Or is it possible to recruit and strengthen the #9?

With Godinet, Grant, Felise and Sue off contract.... Surely we could afford a player of Parcells stature.

He was being groomed as Ballins replacement but stuck behind Korosau at Manly and has spent a while laying low on super league perfecting his game.
Best on field in the Leeds VS Storm game earlier this year...

Hes only 25 and a Queenslander which means he was born to win.

Very fast and a great runner. Plays like Damien Cook.


Thoughts?

How has he been going in ESL?

I was surprised when he left because before he left he was probably the fastest dummy half in the NRL.

From all reports he's definitely killing it over there.
Only watched a few Leeds games this year but he still has the speed.

Seems like a Cleary type of player too.
Humble, selfless and no nonsense on the field.

Could definitely be worth a two year deal at least until Liddle is ready or proved to not be the player we hope he will be...

Grandson of former Ipswich legend Gary Parcell , back when Ipswich provided the entire front row for Australia with Noel Kelly and Uncle Dud

From the Ipswich Jets side with Billy McConnachie in 2015 that won everything

Can't imagine he'd come back tot he NRL only to sit behind the QLD hooker. Wouldn't be a smart move.

Disregard that comment.

Just looked his stats up in the ESL on RLP.

16 tries from 40 games, doing OK it seems.
And she's turning cold, at fifteen years old,
Taken too much slow, minds gone out to sea on the P&O,
Don't know what to do, rotten shade of blue,
Another case of "stupid is as stupid does..."

Read it somewhere. Good player and great if he is still available but a number of clubs are supposedly chasing him. Lichaa could also do a job for us under IC.

Liddle All the Way,

Lots of people in NRL expert land rate him highly.

Or

We could bring back Robbie....

Bring McIllwrick back, his speed from dummy half and his defence is needed.
He threw a few forward passes from dummy half earlier in the season but apart from that he was strong.

If we arent going to give McIlwrick a go, we need to recruit. We just cant keep jerry-rigging people playing in this position. Its too important. Liddle needs a solid back up which WT do not currently have. Godinet ain't it, neither does it seem is McIlwrick. We've run out of specialist hookers.
