Maybe liddle is gassed after 30 minutes, and maybe it’s because he’s doing the defence for the rest of our lazy forwards
Liddle is the new brooks. Every excuse in the book why his passing was horrendous. Why in key moments he wasn’t at dummy half, why he dropped of tackles, why he was gassed after 30 minutes. It’s everybody’s fault but his.
First sentence is dead on. He’s the new scapegoat.
He was terrible that’s what he was. Would happily drive him and brooks to redcliffe. Let’s give these guys another 5 years and see if they will improve. Wonder if brooks csn get to 500 games with no finals at the tigers. Can you imagine the banner and the party at Leichhardt oval for him.
10 line breaks for Liddle. One of our only shining lights in attack. If he was terrible, God knows how you would describe some others
Put his Stats beside Brandon Smith - A guy who’s Spent his whole career in the top 4, Top Tier National representative and about to land a million dollars somewhere…
I don’t see the Price tag difference in the work they do, Or the teams they play in.
There’s only one Brandon Smith, And a couple others you’d bust the bank for. We’re not in the market for them…
Liddle is as good - or better than we could sign - Or afford.
I just don’t get the Liddle bashing. His defence is as good as most starting hookers and I his passing game…someone in this forum started bagging him for no reason and a whole bunch of dimwits just joined in. Watch more than one game, then make a judgement.
I watched every game and was expecting much more then what I got from him. Does that still make me a dimwit or does that make you an imbecile. His defence was the second worst for a hooker in the NRL someone posted some stats before. And if you watched all his games and you think his passing is as good as most starting hookers then your an even bigger imbecile then I thought. I would love for him to do well, but 2021 was no stand out year for liddle.
I’ve not seen anyone suggest that it was - all ive seen is posters unashamedly claim Simpkin is better (which he isn’t) and to move in Liddle - without naming a replacement….
Which is a whole new level of stupid
Liddle has shown he can’t pass, poor defender and can’t play 80. Simpkin dominated junior grades and is 20. There is a reason the club is looking at moving Liddle. He’s not getting much better and his level is not of a first grade hooker.
Simpkin who is not NRL ready projects to be a much better player. He looks a season away to me but it may be sooner.
