After watching Matulino and Packer this weekend throwing some nice offloads I think this kid will really shine off the back of them as they really damage the line and with Packers super quick play the balls.

Having two hookers for the amount of time Liddle played today is ludicrous. Play one of them for 80 or at least give them 40 each. Playing MM for 20 is a complete waste of a reserve...which was made worse by losing Lawrence early.
I think you answered yourself with the time share of the hookers decided by the loss of Lawrence.
I don't understand your point. How does the loss of a second rower impact your hooking strategy? If anything, with Lawrence out I would have expected to at least see MM come back on for a stint at lock, but I didn't see him come back in at all after 20min?

Additional early interchange when Lawrence went off?

I have a left-field suggestion: play MMc as a backrower once he's done his stint at hooker. Lovett tried really hard yesterday but his running game is ineffective and his defence is alright without being in any way dominant.

Could you play MMc at hooker to start, sub Liddle at 20, then bring back MMc last 40 as defensive backrower. Tell him to tackle his guts out and hurt people.

You don't then need to carry Lovett, whose runs are custard anyway, and you still have a backup hooker if Liddle goes down.
