If we can lose Reynolds yes…if not then no

Personally I think Liddle is our number one hooker/dummy half in 2020 - maybe we need a backup if the unforeseen happens but another NRL hooker?

Don’t think Api wants to play cc and if Jake can’t make great inroads next year then maybe sign another NRL hooker for 2021, don’t think you would have to though.

If we sign Billy Walters or a Ben Hampton type player, we can use them as a backup hooker, half etc.

Now we’ve committed to Liddle I’d be happy with bits and pieces to fill in if necessary. Mbye, ET, the kid from Brissie at some point, others that maybe aren’t even with us yet. I don’t think we can afford to pay two hookers

No thanks. Overrated and we have a quality hooker.

Doubt he’ll be cut out for 80 minutes.

That’s is a much better way to go.

Has he ever locked down a starting position and played consistent 80 minute football?

Signing him would be the equivalent of some of Ivan’s signings. Someone needs to stop the coaches recruiting from their old mates club.

Too expensive, not a priority position for improvement given deficiencies elsewhere. Just because he’s available doesn’t mean we should chase him. Move on.

Yes, for about a year and a half over 2017 up until his injury in Round 14 in 2018. He was in serious contention for hooker for NSW when Cook was first selected. Fainu has overtaken him at Manly now though, but that’s because Fainu is bloody good not because Koroisau is rubbish…

He was playing 80 minutes every week was he?

He averaged 70 minutes a game over that period and played plenty of 80 minute games. Barrett was the coach…
