After playing just one game in 2016 due to salary cap constraints, Jacob Liddle enjoyed a breakout rookie year that saw him feature in 13 games for the Club, before a shoulder injury sustained against Manly in Round 19 prematurely ended his season.

Combining with Matt McIlwrick at hooker, Liddle's great speed and vision combined with his footballing brain proved to be a huge asset for Wests Tigers in the middle of the field, with the Wyong Roos junior contributing three tries and four linebreaks throughout the year.

His growth was noticed by Head Coach Ivan Cleary and the coaching staff, with Liddle named Wests Tigers Rookie of the Year for 2017, while also re-signing until the end of 2019.
