Jacob Liddle makes us tick!!

What a special player this kid is going to be if he can stay fit.

He is a young Robbie but plays a more direct and simple game.

His speed and decision making makes us a totally different proposition.

When he was on the field today we are 38-blot.

Yeah I can’t believe how much he makes a difference to us. Fantastic player, knows what options to take and just looks like he isn’t even trying. Future superstar.

Liddle and Robbie are nothing alike.

That selective pass he threw from dummy half to Brooks when he put Marshall over for a try was a gem. A touch of class that is not often seen in a player at his age. Also, the way he kept pace with Kev in the MWZ try really underscored his pace. No wonder the Storm chased him to replace Smith.

Poor memory or unfounded dislike?

Different sorts of players if that is your point i agree.

However that they both had at a young age was speed.

My point is we will all be happy if Liddle plays as many Origins as Farah and wins a Premiership at the club as did Farah.

Both talented but different styles of play. I remember Robbie from SG Ball days was a ball playing hooker with great skills. Liddle from NYC scored lots of tries and is clearly more of a ball runner with great speed which robbie lacks...

Agree Eddie, Liddle is a great prospect, has a long way to emulate Farah as you were alluding too.
He certainly has the potential to achieve that over time.

I’m sure I’ve seen his name in Newcastle’s reserves...

we all hope he does becomes as successful as he is certainly a goer. I have watched particularly his defence this season but with everyone else defending greatly it doesn't matter at this stage. Benji has been making terrific tackles early on, even if some partly miss, he at least slows them down for the second tackler.

But according to story here Farah is still at top of game. https://www.northsydneybears.com.au/201 ... v-knights/

hopefully Liddle will still be setting the world on fire for another ten years.

I wonder how Jacob will compete/survive if he gets thumped in the scrum by a heavy such as Watts? Has he got the mongrel in him that is sometimes required?

He is very good for us. still a work in progress and need a lot of fine tuning to finesse his game

He is tough enough though, that much is evident

He looked great yesterday and really got things going from dummy half. As others have said this kid has the potential to be anything hopefully he can stay injury free for a while.

There is no doubt that Liddle adds direction and a touch of class out of dummy half. He, Brooks and Benji are all feeding off the momentum of our forwards.
