You’d think there would be some urgency around locking down Luke Brooks for few more seasons before Uncle Nick starts sniffing around with his brown paper bags. Roosters will be looking for a half to replace Cronk for 2020, sounds like Munster is their number one target but if they miss out on him then Brooks may well be their number two option.
Or Teddy gets in his ear.
I would think the club would have been in negotiations with Luke for a while.At this stage he would be our number 1 retention

You would hope so.
Luke should have been locked up a long time ago, instead of fantasizing over NC.

Kotoni Staggs would be worth a look at he was pretty good in the couple of Bronco games that he played.
He's 6'1 92kgs.
He comes from Wellington, so it might not be as hard to get him back to NSW.

He has resigned with Brisbane, & has always been a priority for them so no chance

Off topic - just to check

Can people confirm if this is Justin Pascoes email.

Ceo@weststigers.com

Have sent two emails to that address over the past couple of weeks with - no answer.

It is very important or I wouldn't ask.

The Knights are shopping Nathan Ross around. Not usually the type of player id want us to sign but he could be a handy depth player. Can cover a few positions as well.

Rossy is a dud.
There is a reason why it takes some blokes ten years to make grade.

Big fish in a small pond in Newy.
ISC player at best but hes not far off retirement.

Avoid.

Agree, who we have now are already way better than the self proclaimed ‘rossdog’ - whatever that means.

Ross is as big as Marty Taupau... When it comes to egos. #TeamKapow 😂. Rossdog a gimmick. Personality player but really doesn't have much personality.

Things will definitely spark once the grand final and post grand final stories dry up.

That’s right these contracts are so water tight that they can’t be broken.
