From what i understand there are no direct quotes from anyone either Roosters or Tigers in relation to Luke brooks.

This is nothing more than a rumour, started by The Mole i think it was.
Even if he was 100% sure he wanted to stay, his manager would be wise to "leak" a story like this to up his price.
On the money I would say!
There was also him tweeting a response to Tedesco re Finals footy... "finals footy, what's that?"
i personally have never heard of it, haven't heard of it for quite a number of years now, all i have heard is "wooden spoon" :brick:

I’m hanging onto the post by The Pom. He’s re-signed already!

Folks, this is how the Luke Brooks situation is playing out....it’s all about media, sponsor and fan management...the club looking to maximise its impact..


1) Brooks has signed with the WT for 3 years....the club are holding back announcing it.

2) the seed has already been planted that Madge considers Brooks a marquee player......

3) whilst Madge is on NZ duty there will be no major announcements re players.

4) Madge joins the club on the 15th as Head Coach....soon after the “held onto” announcements are made....

- Brooks signs on for 3 years, announced as our Marquee signing..
- we have filled spots 29 and possibly 30....


5) Madge gets the credit for these signings, sold as a big win for our new Coach

6) fans, sponsors, supporters are happy with our new Head Coach and his immediate impact....

Wait and see.....
Are you saying Brooks would take us to 29, or signing another player would?
Brooks is already in the 28 listed by the club.

Correct. Brooks is signed for 2019. It’s what happens after that is the issue.

Hoping he re signs and then goes on to take N Cleary's origin jersey. Just out plays him in every way, all season long.

Wests Tigers ramp up campaign to re-sign star halfback Luke Brooks
NOVEMBER 10, 2018
NEW Wests Tigers coach Michael Maguire will meet with Luke Brooks this weekend to nail down the star halfback to a deal until 2023.

Maguire will return from New Zealand’s three-Test series against England on Friday and arrange a sit-down appointment with Brooks, who is off contract after next season.

Brooks, 23, and Maguire have spoken several times on the phone but agreed that a one-on-one meeting was imperative before any contract could be signed.

Wests Tigers have lodged a preliminary offer after talks started in late September.

The two parties met again just last week.


media_cameraBrooks enjoyed the best season of his career this year. AAP Image/Joel Carrett.
The Daily Telegraph understands the Tigers want Brooks to sign a three- to four-year contract.

Brooks earns around $550,000 a season with the Tigers but that figure would be increased under any new deal.

A source close to Wests Tigers said: “Madge and Luke have already had contact but you still have to sit down with someone to work through things.

“Luke has been happy with the conversations so far.

“Given the position he plays in our side, it’s nice level of comfort for Luke to sit down with Madge and for Madge to sit down with Luke face-to-face.”

This year’s Dally M halfback of the year has been touted as a target for the Sydney Roosters when Cooper Cronk retires after next season.


media_cameraThe Roosters are reportedly interested in Brooks. AAP Image/Dan Himbrechts.
The Roosters have not made an offer, though.

Wests Tigers want to secure Brooks as soon as possible given rival clubs can now negotiate with him.

Brooks is a Tigers local junior who has repeatedly indicated he wanted to remain at – and maybe one day captain – the club.

Last week Maguire told Sydney radio of his strong desire to retain Brooks long-term.

“I spoke to Luke and I’m really looking forward to working with him,” Maguire said.

“I really like his style of playing. He’s born and bred in that jersey.

“If we build what we want to build there, he’s going to play a big part in that.


media_cameraBrooks played his 100th NRL games last season. Picture by Brett Costello.
“He has put a lot of time into that jersey and it would be nice to see him get some high reward now off the back of that.

“(Wests Tigers are) in a position to move forward and it’s about picking the right players who add to the quality that we’ve already got.”

Maguire will bring a fierce and methodical coaching style to the club.

Some senior Wests Tigers players are already curious as to how they will fit in under Maguire.

The players remain angry at Ivan Cleary’s departure to Penrith but have vowed to put it behind them under Maguire.

Pretty short odds he stays. Who knows what he and Maguire have talked about over the last couple weeks. It’s natural they would want to meet each other before Brooks makes a decision. Hopefully the meeting is just a formality.

Hopefully Maguire has told Luke what he wants to hear so it can be finalised quickly

I don't know why , but I'm really concerned now

In past seasons he probably lacked the confidence to back himself to leave to another club

After almost winning the Dally M , he will have the confidence he can do it anywhere and behind a better pack and having options outside him who can make him look even better he will be very tempted after another failed season

He signs for 3 seasons and we don't crack the 8 , he does lots of damage to his career

Put yourself in his shoes for a moment , he has seen so many coaches , so many different 5/8's , underwhelming forward packs , outside backs who'd be slower than some sides front rowers and no finals footy ........

I won't be surprised if he leaves to be honest

There’s no evidence to suggest he’s going anywhere. One story about the Roosters isn’t evidence of anything.

I cant see him leaving, but to keep him we are going to be hit hard financially, and not sure his game will reflect that on the field.
Our squad has not been strengthened significantly enough- for next year at least - to give him anything extra to work with.
Brooks has got all the skills necessary but the mindset is still his biggest handbrake imo, hope Maguire can unleash it.

More convinced than ever he’ll stay. I would guess there might be an announcement next week.
