I'm loving this kid. So sharp out of dummy half. One of the few shining lights so far in 2017.

I like him over Liddle from what I have seen so far.
Maca is a tough nut who loves mixing it up in the middle.
Played well today.

Has anyone noticed that in the last 3 games, after he goes off, our game goes backwards and by the time he returns its beyond recovery.

Like a mac truck in defence and those magical balls 1metre in front of the halves for them to run onto. He needed more gametime today. To not come back on till the 70th minute was wrong. He really locks up the middle for us.

Liddle looked like he needs a run in NSW Cup to get back into it.
He hadn't trialled or anything yet this year

This is the key. I think we need to play him for 80 & have 4 big boppers on the bench to punch holes in the opp. If we can't create 2nd phase play we've got nothing.

Doing great. I think liddle is the future but nuture him. MM is doing great if he can play longer minutes leave him there but in saying that I know a lot of you don't like Ballin but I think once he is ready to go he and MM will be a really good rotation for our club

I thought both our rakes were excellent. Liddle's service was great. Getting it out quick and flat, which is what you want.

MM is very good but Liddle is real class. He needs a run or two but Liddle reminds me so much of Cameron Smith. Iam happy to play them together but a 80 minute no9 would help us carry another forward on the bench

He is very good but Liddle is good as well. I think we should play 2 dummy halves for the rest of the year.

He's a good player. Agree with Earl on the two dummy halves

Well he's gone well the first 20 minutes of all 4 games only to be taken off and barely used again. So my guess is he cant play 80. If he can then its been disgraceful use of the interchange.

Lost a bit of spark and direction when he went off today and was brought back on too late.
His service from dummy half and his straight running have been one of the few highlights so far this year.

Agree he's surprised me and he can keep the spot if he keeps playing that way.
Liddle on the other hand I'm not too excited about to be honest. His passing is dreadful, and I was expecting spark around the ruck to bring Teddy into the mix but there was nothing. All this talk of Liddle being quick out of dummy half and he displayed 0.
