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.

Pity he is surrounded by pretenders that can not catch the ball and move forward !

Is he arrogant of what ??
That pass from him that Cheem Kam dropped, he didnt even bother acknowledging anything
Arrogantly walked off in another direction
Saw him more than once display the same body language

I know the club, coach and CEO are trying to change the culture. Lets hope im wrong about my assessment today

On his footballing, no question he can play
I'm not sure what you mean. I was at the game and I saw him remonstrate in annoyance at the outcome of his pass to Chee Kam. I don't see any arrogance whatsoever. I see a quiet, humble young player who is trying very hard to do his best.

Great attack, great defence, one of the best on the field.

Why does the modern player need a hug every time he drops the ball anyway?

Thought Liddle looked good today. I'd be keeping both he and MM in the 17 all year as I believe there isn't enough depth to justify an extra prop or second rower at this time. We looked good when attacking the ruck and think we should stick to this .

His defence was great wasn't it. I know that he can attack but his defence was really good.

He's definitely first grade level right now and I'll be amazed if he isn't a rep player in the next few years. I just hope we can hang on to him long term.

Tiger torch stated Liddle was happy to hang around and play reserve grade till he can nail down a spot.
This guy is all class and loyal as.

We weren't worried about losing Cherrington because we knew we had this secret weapon.

He will repay us.

More impressed by his defence than his running game at the moment. Thought he was good without being great tonight, quite a few sloppy passes in the second half, though hopefully that was just fatigue and not bad habits. That said, his pass in the lead up to Kev's try was top shelf. Worth persisting with a 40/40 split with McIlwrick for this season while we're no chance I think

Totally agree, we only ever look good when we play up tempo through the middle with players pushing up around the ball. Whenever we put a play on with Teddy out the back, the defense reads it too easy and just pressures him and most of the time he's taking the pass while bracing for the collision or getting the ball and having to stop dead and change direction and come back infield and the play breaks down, that's pretty much all we have in attack and for it to work our execution needs to be perfect and it's usually not.

Good player, some passes went astray during the match due to lack of concentration or fatigue....he should also back himself more in attack esp with his speed....this will grow in confidence....decent rolling forward pack and this kid will kill it.

I think he is a gun player and the team improved with his service from dummy half yesterday/ Behind a forward pack with more grunt and another off-season under his belt, he should be first choice at 9 for a long time to come. He's a keeper for sure.

As other have said, our tempo our game speed seems to go up a gear when he is on the field. I would keep him in tandem with Maca till about this time next year and than re asses the situation. By that time he should be nearly a 80min no9 and that will gives a better bench rotation. I personally think he will be a gun and a future long term captain of the club
