It’s time for Farah and Liddle to swap roles for a number of reasons.
Plenty dislike Farah and we all get it. He can be devisive for whatever reason. Some say he is selfish, some say not. But whatever motivates him, I dont care. As long as he puts in each week. He can bite the heads of ducks for all I care before a game, as long as he is up for the match. I want whats best for the team.
As for Liddle, I am a huge fan so I will declare that. Plenty have come out this week and said he threw a pass (it wouldnt qualify as a pass) from the scrum that was crap, and threw another dodgy pass later on. Well, to those claims I say this. 100% correct, but he is a young guy, coming back from plenty of injuries, now playing 15minutes a game each when he should be playing 60 at least. Rusty to say the least. The kid needs minutes. And whilst Farah did some good things and some great kicks, I could point out a dozen things during that game that he did poor, and he is a seasoned veteran and at one stage in his career was one of the best players int he NRL full stop. Judging Liddle on that is ridiculous.
I want to see him after a half dozen full games and see how he is travelling.
However, rightly or wrongly Farah will get his 300th game as the starter and that isnt necessarily bets for the team, despite the fact he may deserve it personally.
At this stage even if he wants to, Farah should not be running around as our starter for 2020, and we have done NOTHING to dress his replacement. Liddle will be that hooker and it’s about time he was given a chance to ply his trade with minutes on the field.
This is not a Farah attack, because as I said, I dont care what motivates him. I want what is best for ths team which needs some building and in my opinion, Farah is not part of it anymore. All good things must come to an end.
