The problem with the Tigers attack is Mr R Farah.
Farah is at least three years past his best, his biggest asset to the club is his experience which can be used just as effectively off field, his biggest drawback is his constant stifling of the attack. His pace is non-existent and his defence is “iffy”.
Our best player Luke Brooks is often restrained by Farah constantly overplaying his hand. Luke’s combination with Jacob Liddle could be lethal.
Liddle’s blinding pace will open up so many more opportunities for our best attacking players, Brooks, Marsters, Mbye, Matterson.
I’m convinced Josh Reynold’s would rediscover his attacking mojo a lot quicker, even “Old Benji” if he can hold his place in the 17 will suddenly have more time and not be under as much constant pressure.
Liddle is right to go now season 2019, in hindsight he never stood a chance in 2018 after coming back from a double shoulder reconstruction, stop holding him back, its holding the club back. The young hooker we picked up from Penrith to play ISP presents a far better option than what we had last year if Liddle is injured.
Farah should do the right thing by a club and retire now. I truly believe that he has given his heart and soul to the club and will always be remembered as one of our best but don’t forget he has also been handsomely remunerated for his efforts.
If Musgrove is cleared to play, we will need salary cap space he is a far better option than Farah.
