Liddle Rehab....



  • I deadest feel for this bloke…apparently has an abundance of talent,just cant stay injury free…
    After the inductees in the hall of fame…Iam starting to think Liddle will be inducted in the REHAB hall of fame…
    surely he has to get over this latest setback and really show us he can shine in the nrl arena…before he gets to old to show us his true wears as a hooker…



  • he can take his place alongside poor tim moltzen



  • Some blokes have all the skill and talent in the world, unfortunately they may not be as durable. Jacob is starting to really look like one of these. His injury last night was freakish but I can’t help but feel many other players might have got up from that.

    From my experience if it is an ACL fair bit of pain for the 1st 15-20 minutes and then you start to feel OK …as long as you are moving in a completely straight line

    Not what I meant mate. I know an ACL is a devastating injury. I meant other players wouldn’t have ruptured it.

    Freak injuries occur

    How many players have done ACL’s at Brookvale now in the last 3 seasons



  • Hate to say it but poor young Liddle may be our next Moltzen with regards to injuries. Wish the young guy best of luck in recovery but having done my ACL twice it’s as much about getting your head right when coming back as the body.

    Felt exactly opposite to that as it played out and even recalled the wrenching pain in my left knee when pretty well exactly the same occurred to me. Upon seeing the replay, I immediately said that’s it for him this year.

    Nah, can’t agree with that and recalled the wrenching pain in my left knee 35 years ago when pretty well the same thing occurred to me. Upon seeing the replay, I said, that’s it for him this year, as there is only so much lateral movement in the exterior ligaments and expect that his is completely removed from the bone.



  • ‘This won’t finish me’: Luckless Liddle vows to return from setback
    By Adrian Proszenko

    Luckless Wests Tigers hooker Jacob Liddle will drawn upon the mental strength that got him through two shoulder surgeries to bounce back from his latest injury setback, declaring: “I’ll come back bigger and stronger.”
    Starting in the No.9 jersey for the first time this year in place of the injured Robbie Farah, Liddle tore his ACL against Manly. While the exact recovery time won’t be known until he consults the surgeon, the initial prognosis is anywhere between seven and 12 months after he damaged all three ligaments in his knee. If it is the worst-case scenario, the 22-year-old will all but write off next season as well as this one.

    It is a cruel blow for the former Australian Schoolboy, who has been restricted to just 38 NRL appearances due to two previous surgeries to his shoulders. However, Liddle believes the resilience he built up during previous stints in the injury ward has steeled him for another comeback.

    “It’s going to be a long road, it is the sport that we play,” Liddle told the Herald.

    “I’ll come back bigger and stronger . . . I’ve had two shoulder recos and you just take it day by day.

    “You don’t think about the long haul, you just think about the daily things, doing the recovery.

    “It’s all mental really. You get back on the horse and plough ahead.”

    Liddle well get a better indication of his surgery options and a potential return date when he consults with the specialist this week.

    “I’m not really sure about all the technical stuff’" he said.

    “I just know I did the ACL, which is the major thing in terms of damage around the knee. I know I need surgery but I’m not sure how long I’m out until I talk to the surgeon and physio first."

    The Tigers are almost out of dummy half options. It’s unclear whether Robbie Farah will play again after the retiring veteran suffered a fractured tibia. Liddle was seen as Farah’s long-term replacement, prompting the club to re-sign him for a further two seasons earlier this month.

    Coach Michael Maguire is likely to turn to out-of-favour utility Josh Reynolds to share the dummy half duties with Elijah Taylor for the remainder of the season as the Tigers battle to stay in finals contention.

    The joint-venture outfit has recruited promising Brisbane teen Jake Simpkin from next year, although he is unlikely to be ready to start next year in first grade.

    Liddle said he will devote himself to his recovery and throw himself into his university studies – he has begun an accounting degree – during his latest sabbatical.

    “I’m doing uni which is good for keeping my mind off things,” he said.

    “At school I was a bit of a maths head. I did engineering but I let that go because it was too much load with full-time training. I’m doing accounting instead so it’s that or finance.

    “My girlfriend Caitlin, my parents, all the boys in the club and coaching staff have been amazing through my last surgeries.

    “Long term I want to play good footy.”

    The Tigers aren’t currently in a position to buy a replacement hooker or recruit any other player due to salary cap issues. They are attempting to offload Reynolds, Russell Packer, Chris McQueen, Taylor and Ben Matulino in a bid to revamp the roster.

    In Matulino’s case, his knee injury, which is not, could be a career-ending one. If he is medically retired, the Tigers are considering applying for a salary cap exemption for the final year of his contract.

    The Tigers need to beat Newcastle at Campbelltown next Saturday to keep their slim play-off hopes alive.

    I wonder what the club will do with Jacob after he gets over this injury…next year is basically a write off for him and that gives him one year left on his contract the following year as I understand it…
    Would they say he is too much of an injury risk to continue with him or would they let him go?



  • It’s all an unknown really…he may come back and kill it in 2021, that’s certainly a possibility, or he may come back and be plagued by injury once again - his career will effectively be done if he can’t stay on the field. That’s just my thinking but he needs an injury free run to be any chance of succeeding in FG.
