Some have mentioned that finally we have an 80 min number 9, I've got a funny feeling that IC is still gonna go with a hooker on the bench for the rest of the season .. Liddle .. to watch an learn how Robbie plays ??

I'd rather go with 3 forwards (if not 4) and a utility player .. maybe Gamble with size and speed is better suited as our utility player ??
Seibold has managed Farah very well this year keeping him fresh by not playing him every week. Its very optimistic of any thinks we're gonna get 80 mins of quality from him every week. I think/ hope we'll see Liddle off the bench for the rest of the season.
I’d have Farah starting with liddle on the bench. If we don’t see liddle standing up , then I think we need to look elsewhere for 2019. The ex manly player parcel should definitely be looked at for 2019 if Robbie is only given till the end of the year.

With Cleary looking at bringing Robbie back for the rest of this year it has to make you think
Both Mclwrick and Godinet are gone seasons end
Liddle to play more ISC
Robbie to retire
And wests tigers on the hunt for another first class Hooker

I'm not sure where Liddle sits now. Before the seasion started Cleary brought in Godinet even though we had McIllwick as cover and now he brings in Farah.
It seems Cleary is losing patience with potential.

Ivan is not dumb .. he gave Liddell many chances with no result so he finally gave up and put him in ISP and has been looking for a short term solution. Godinet and Killa are gone and Taylor didn’t work .. same as Rankin etc. If anyone watched what happened on Sunday when Hodgson came on then you know why he made the decision to engage Farah. If Farah happens I reckon in a couple of weeks we will see Liddle on the bench and Farah to the middle to cover and provide another kicking option

We really are the little b**** of the NRL. A player approaches us to play here, we approve it, and now we wait to hear if his current club allowes it.
Surely a respectable club would say to the player, get your release and then we'll talk.

We're a joke.

Im glad to see Robbie back even though I think he is on a hiding to nothing somewhat whatever he does from here with a team on the slide.

Cleary has far more of a clue then Taylor about rebuilding clubs so Ill back his judgement.

Looking forward to Leichhardt that bit more in a couple of weeks.

This signing is part out of necessity, part making things right and part a marketing exercise.

Farah is a career hooker and an upgrade on the current situation.

As a band-aid solution to get us through to next season, it's not a bad one.
