Disagree to a slight extent . We seem to die in the arse a bit when Liddle comes on .
Can Mcllwrick play 80 ?
If he can , he should !
Are you serious Hobbo - Liddle is just learning, he has to come on to get that experience.
His defence was terrific today and his service from DH was excellent.

Have no idea what you expect from a 20 year old. MM is really good yes but Liddle is the future.
Mcllwrick is 25 and he's a gun and he's also what we need ATM .
Yes Liddle is only 20 and looks like a promising prospect , but he should be plying his trade in reserve grade ATM .
McIlwrick has a chronic knee issues bone on bone ..even when at Newtown they had Kurt Kara coming off the bench giving him a spell in ISP...

Great signing though one of the highlights of the season so far...
Thx Geo , never knew Mcllwrick had bung knees.

I'd still be extending his contract though , he's good !

Tedesco held up by a player who shouldn't have been their but somehow it wasnt a penalty try
My thoughts on that no try decision as well. If Reynolds isn't there Tedesco scores. Isn't that a professional foul? Or is it different to the Brenko Lee sin bin?
I was confused about this at the crowd as you heard them say if it's not a try Reynolds is off side. As I'm watching it Reynolds is the main defender and all we get is a penalty, if he stays out of the play we score 100%

I love our hooker rotation. Liddle went well. Made all his tackles. But McIlwrick is awesome!

Agree .... he will improve with experience.
For goodness sake he is just 20.

Plying your trade in reserve grade is not going to teach you anything about NRL.
Even if you stayed there for 50 years.

Liddle defends very well, and will put on a bit of size as he gets older. He will also build confidence and has a very good running game. He does get some time in the naughty corner for going for a try himself from dummy half. Both him & McIllwrick have scored from that play recently, but the dogs are a bit tougher around the ruck.

And look where it got brooks and moses .
It's taken then 70 odd games to show glimpses of being ready for the main stage .
Playing hooker in the NRL is a massive ask at the age of 20 , the kid looks promising , but he needs more bulk and another pre-season under his belt .

He does need to put on more muscle - enough so it doesn't slow him down.
If he is not NRL familiar what are you going to do if MM knee goes - play Rankin?

Has Jacob been missing tackles I havent noticed?

Nope. Best pound for pound defender since Joey. Sure ge doesnt put the hits on that MM does, but very few get past Jacob.

2 tries in 4 games from a hooker. Quick service. Sharp running.

Yep terrible player. Sack him Wests Tigers.

No he doesn't. You are misguided. MM can't play 80 mins, Ballin is out and Liddle has been excellent every time he's come on. No you're right, we should certainly leave him down a grade until he finishes filling out as he's only tackling at 96% efficiency now... :roll:

Well it has been mentioned many time across multiple threads, including this one. Not sure why you wouldn't know this if you do have such an interest in our hookers.

mckillrick is a beast in the middle. Hit all there forwards all day.. Sign him up long term!!
100% agree with you.
Wasn't keen on MCK at first, but he's changed my mind over the last few weeks.
But still have doubts0n Liddle , seems way to little and was monstered yesterday, needs to build up a lot for first grade. But I don't think that we need him except as a back up
