If we're comparing the options of Luke, Rein, Liccha and Peats for the dummy half position then Luke wins hands down, imo. None of the others come anywhere near Luke when he is in form.
Luke is definately by far the best of that lot but at his age buying him for more than 1 year is not worth the risk.Short term option only 2019
True, hopefully one season will be all we'll need if Liddle can get fully fit. Not sure Luke would be happy with only one year though, no doubt he'll go elsewhere.

I could cop him for a year. He's a competitor and still in pretty good form.

Better alternative to signing Lichaa, Peats, Parcell or Farah...

Would he want to come here, and would he cop a one year deal?

Thats the way i see it also.Luke should get very good money to play in ESL.

This is a short term fix and really not what is required..the jury is still out on Liddle but he also has to be given time to build his strength after the 2 Recos ...I believe he will come good but it is not going to be overnight ,probably next season after a full off season. Run with the Killer /Taylor comb for the rest of the season with the occasional Liddle appearance.
If early next season Liddle is not cutting it then pull out all stocks in signing a quality hooker on a good contract.
Agree. I see Liddle as our long term No 9. We need someone that Ivan is prepared to use in top grade only when required. Luke would eat up too much of our salary cap and want a long term deal, which would mean we are throwing Liddle to the scrapheap prematurely.

Meh. pass... He'd want heaps of money has injury troubles and we just need to give Liddle time. He'll end up taking less money to stay in NZ.

Matt Parcell??
He was a God of Qld cup but was stuck behind McCullough... Went to Manly but they opted for Api...

Currently in super league.
Similar player to Damien Cook.

Luke is proven in the NRL mate. Parcell is playing in the ESL which is not the same standard of competition.

The trouble is he will be after at least two years and possibly more. Last contract thats why I see him off to the UK where his body may last a couple of extra years

Yeah of course, it's highly unlikely he'd go anywhere for a season as there's zero security.

He'd have to want to come here as well.

Isaac Luke may be 31 years old, but he's in career best form right now. Cameron Smith is 34 turning 35 this year and take a look at him, he's still probably the best hooker in the NRL.

I’m sorry but if you are vehemently against Robbie Farah coming back but are FOR Issac Luke being signed, you’ve got some issues that need dealing with.
