The Daddy

Liam Sutcliffe - I'm hearing he's the real deal

Recommended Posts

Good player, quick on his feet for a big lad and has a nice step I just hope as he fills out more they don't force him I to the loose forward role would be an excellent stand off in years to come. Let's have this chat again in another season or two when hopefully he has fulfilled his undoubted potential.

Agreed, still a bit raw, but very much a rough diamond.

2 more tries today taking his tally to 5 from 7 games (4 starts)

I'd like to see him stay at 6 all year now personally.

Stevie Ward has been talked up for years and is very good. Sutcliffe is younger and has taken his opportunity brilliantly though. For an 18 year old to be doing what he is in such an influential role, it doesn't happen often.

Leeds could be very lucky with a decade ago McGuire and Burrow coming through at the same time and now Sutcliffe and Ward. You can build around them and the back line is still young enough to have a good 10 years (5 for Hall and Moon) ahead of them if we keep them.

It's just the forwards we need to build on now. Peacock on Leuluai only have a year in them but Singleton looks good and Baldwinson's made an impressive debut a couple of weeks back and is the England young 'uns captain.

NZ Warriors are apparently after him which is worrying from our point of view. From a selfish point of view I hope he stays and establishes himself with us but I guess we'll see!
