    I don't blame Hasler for making him a poor distributer of the ball. In all his years in the NRL he should have improved at least a bit with that part of his game. Players can be found out if dummy half running is their entire game. And while it might work in the lower grades where defence tends to be a bit less solid, genuine NRL hookers need to be able to get the forwards rolling and give the right players the ball when opportunity is there.

    Under no circumstances will I have sympathy for him. It might be tough to walk away from a dream job. But if a chef was great at doing the plating up of food (basically the flashiest part of meal preparation) but cooked food that tasted like ass, he wouldn't last long in the kitchen. Lichaa basically stood out in the lower grades because down there he could plate up well (dummy half running) but couldn't follow the recipe well enough.

    So Des the Kant signed him for us yet now needed a hooker at Manly but brushed him now?

    Tigers went with makeshift Moses

    The irony

    How many more former Bulldogs can the Tigpies take? Corey Thompson, Josh Reynolds, Moses Mbye... sure, give them Lichaa as well... and a more fitting logo:

    Kyle Turner is another who can't find a club and he's a GF winner. Apart from their averageness I'm wondering if clubs are aware of issue with these guys?

    Lichaa would probably do well in ESL. He has been one of those odd players that look like a star at Cup level here but can't consistently convert that at NRL level. ESL is probably between Cup and NRL in terms of quality.

    Lichaa can play. I was against him but watched him play reserves . His natural game is similar to Ennis ( agreed he isn't any where near Ennis in standards). He can play around the ruck. He likes ball play and does have the skills to do so.. he come here as a running 9 , under des he got his legs cut out. Des doesn't like ball playing 9s . He wants defencive 9s. Lichaa can't pass, is slow at passing when he does. But let him play his game he can be a good player .He is a throw back 9 . Unfortunately he come in when 9s didn't dominate .Now we see more running 9s and with more direct playing style lichaa would have been a decent backup. Best bet go to the UK and do his thing. Hope he finds his feet cause Dessie certainly gut his legs out from under him.

    Unfair to comment on a player that has always been loyal to the dogs poor bastard tackles his arse off every game I've been a dogs supporter for 49 years and honestly don't think his that bad just needed the right guidance and probably some confidence and praise from team mates

    He lost his hooker spot to a centre, and again later to an inexperienced half.

    If he had skills, he rarely showed it on game day, when it counted.

    Anyway, enough history.
