Wests Tigers hooker Jacob Liddle.

Wests Tigers hooker Jacob Liddle has inked a two-year extension having battled repeated injuries that threatened to derail his NRL career.

Liddle is set to remain at the Tigers until the end of 2023 on a new deal in a show of faith from both player and club.

The 24-year-old Wyong Roos junior is backing himself to keep highly-rated youngster Jake Simpkin out of the No.9 jersey over coming seasons, while the Tigers commitment in return comes after a brutal run of injuries for Liddle.

He has impressed in recent weeks as the Tigers form begins to improve, playing his 50th NRL game against Newcastle last month.

The milestone had been a long time coming, and at times looked as though it never would.

For three straight seasons between 2017 and '19 Liddle had his campaigns cut short by two season-ending shoulder reconstructions and a brutal 12-month knee injury that saw him rupture his ACL, MCL and PCL against Manly.

Liddle returned to the paddock last August after a year-long recovery and his reward is a two-year deal to remain under Michael Maguire's stewardship at Concord.
