Anyone can support a team when it is winning, that takes no courage.
But to stand behind a team, to defend a team when it is down and really needs you,
that takes a lot of courage. #18thMan

Always said this!! & I’m sorry but Liam is one of the worse for us. Remember the last game v Leeds??

That is a very poor appointment especially given his inept performance when both teams last met. I was hoping for Hicks or Thaler.

To be fair to Liam, he has been placed in a no win situation.

I would have preferred Hicks & Thaler 😊

The main gripe is that he tends to allow endless messing about at the PTB and grappling on the ground which will suit Leeds.
With Thaler on the VT - expect a late finish!

Thaler only comes into the game when the ref asks him too.
