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.
