Hey, let’s not go crazy. We’ve been told for weeks that halfbacks this year have been low on form.

Well earned. Still think our club management stifled his career.

If he was at most other clubs he would be covered in rep honours, the kid can play.

Grats Brooksy, great effort!
Well deserved.
Well said. Probably could have taken out the whole thing playing behind a stronger forward pack.

Great effort by Brooks and was our best player this year by some distance. 3rd in the DMs was a big effort, being a standout in a team of battlers always helps you accumulate points but it also hindered his chances when the team started to falter at the end of the season in a couple of must win matches.

Time to stitch him up for a few more years and find some quality forwards to lay the platform

I’d love to see the WTs get a top shelf lock. Marty or JDB. Someone with good carries and an offload the can still control the ruck is where we need to spend the money. Either that or an impact prop.
Brooks will still be on $550k next year. Don’t think many halfbacks earn less than that.

That will add another 100k+ to his next contract... Well done to him and hope he resigns soon with us.
He is only on $550. I think the upgrade will be more the $100k

This is great news. He looked to be one of the top halves in the game this season so I'm not surprised.

HALFBACK OF THE YEAR: LUKE BROOKS

David Campbell

Four years after he claimed the rookie of the year award, Luke Brooks has claimed a second Dally M gong.

The Tigers halfback experienced the best season of his short career, fulfilling the prodigious potential that has lurked within him for so long.

His rise and improvement under Ivan Cleary played a big part in the joint venture’s revival.

Runners up: Mitchell Pearce, Ash Taylor, Daly Cherry-Evans, Cooper Cronk

Congratulations Luke. I am really glad that the Dally M judges are much better judges than some on this forum. What happened to Nathan Cleary? Hundreds of pages on this forum and he is not even a runner-up.

Well deserved and more impressive is what got him to halfback of the year, much improved game management rather than individual moments.

NC had a stack of weeks off due to injury?...But then again so did Pearce.

Hopefully Luke re-signs long term, it'd be great to have one true club man out of "The Big Four"

Glad Luke won - deserved it.

I think Cleary being out injured for 8+ weeks didn't help his points tally.

Put the boot in, but let's be fair and honest.

Think this should take him up to 850k myself.

When you see what some of the half backs are on e.g. Hunt, Taylor etc.

The first thing that should happen is next years contract is topped up. If you rob him now it's going to cost us later.

Nice award for him but the reality is he's nowhere near the best halfback in the NRL.
Still young so plenty of time to work on the aspects of his game still underdeveloped.
