Simpkin is the future. showed plenty already and is still very much a kid.
I think the club agrees. It’s why they are looking to bring in a relatively short term solution to play hooker while he continues to develop. Liddle was very disappointing this season, he’s not good enough.
I think we can often forget that despite his age Lids is very inexperienced?
He played 20 games this year and has played 60 in his career. I think this year we saw enough to know his service from dummy half is not good enough.
His game including his service is too inconsistent especially over 80 minutes. When he is playing well he is decent but that lasts for 10-20 minute periods at the moment.
