Jacob Liddle sets club record in incredible defensive effort

Wests Tigers hooker Jacob Liddle produced an incredible defensive performance on Saturday playing for the club's Intrust Super Premiership team, Western Suburbs.

Coming up against Mounties RLFC in a big top four match, the day didn't exactly go to plan for Liddle and Western Suburbs as the visitors emerged with a big win following a dominant attacking display.

That meant plenty of defence for Liddle and the Magpies throughout the match, with the young gun hooker — who had two shoulder reconstructions prior to the season — recording an incredible 73 tackles.

Playing 80 minutes in the middle of the field, Liddle completed 73 of his 77 attempted tackles, setting what is believed to be a club record in all grades and one of the most remarkable defensive efforts.

Liddle's 73 tackles are believed to be the most in a match by a Wests Tigers player since Elijah Taylor's 62 tackles against South Sydney in Round 10, 2017.  Taylor holds the all-time NRL record for most tackles in a game when he made an incredible 77 tackles in a game against the North Queensland Cowboys in 2015.
