Should be.

ET - no thanks
GODINET - GOD NO
McKilla - isn't getting a look
Liddle - 1 game on, 4 games off
Reynolds - made of whatever Matai is made of.

Negotiate to get Mbye asap and use him at hooker until Liddle is ready. Liddle will be No1 hooker at this club in the coming years, without doubt, baring further drastic injury. We are going to pay big bucks for this bloke because of his utility value, not because he is a star fullback.

I can see why you would say that but it would be a bit like buying a new, fast car and then using it to haul loads of concrete to the tip for a couple of months. If we get him early I think he has to go straight to the back.

I voted no. We need to let what we have play out. Sign a quality hooker and we will lose Liddie before we even get a good look at him.

Makes no sense.

Something to consider is playing Mybe in the 9 if he came over mid season. Just for this season like Tui in the 6 last year.
Its an opinion!

I don't think that helped Tui's development in hindsight and I wouldn't want to potentially make the same mistake again. I'd almost rather he stay at the Bulldogs and continue to develop as a fullback - he's very green in the position.

He could share it with Renolds and Benji. They all have good hands. Remember this is just temporary. Got to be better than others we have already used without success.

Liddle All the Way,

Lots of people in NRL expert land rate him highly.

Or

We could bring back Robbie....
Some handy back up at the right price won't hurt Spartan

He asked for a release but it was denied.
Supposedly had a few offers on the table.
I assume Parramatta was one.

What happens if the interchanges go down to 6? Do we waste 1 interchange for a hooker? The other two will be for our front rowers. If we get an injury we will need that extra interchange.

According to the GM of Football Kelly Egan ..Fullback....tick....Prop, Back Row. Outside Back. Utility...I guess the utility may count as a hooker

Liddle is definitely our future but at the moment doesn’t have the body to endur the rigours of first grade football. We have depth in every position bar hooker. A player of parcels ability is definitely worth a look at.

It’s developing into Cleary’s first real black mark in team selections. Liddle is injury prone and ET and Godinet are terrible back ups. If he’s not willing to use McIlwrick, which he obviously isn’t, he needs to find another option outside the club.

Yeah someone like Buhrer would be a utility that can cover hooker reasonably well.
