He sits back and doesn't try anything...........certainly if the forwards are on the back foot. He's gone backwards big time.

I'd probably prefer Moses in at half and Rankin at 5/8 or Littlejohn

IMO Brooks should be shown the door ,the guy has had long enough to show something ,today's effort was the last for mine .Moses shows that he has the stuff to move forward but Brooks is just a passenger ,tap him on the shoulder and ask him to look at another club.

He is an aweful halfback and only a very average footballer in general at this level.
If people think Farah's money will come in handy, just wait until this clown is replaced by a hungry young gun on a quarter his money.

He's on par with John Morris IMO

It's a shame Jeff Robson is retiring , he'd be a good foil for Moses .

Agree, although it's a shame. He's far from a world beater and I'm not sure he even has the potential to be one.. Time will tell I guess. If he doesn't really step up next season he likely won't have a new contract. People say he's injured.. Firstly why wouldn't the club bring in Littlejohn in that case? They've done it before.

And to say he's playing on one leg is a copout - there are plenty of players who play injured and they seem to still do a fine job. I'm sure Mosses was playing injured today too, copped a few knocks.. If Brooks was that badly injured to justify a performance like today then he wouldn't have been playing. He's not worth the money he's supposedly on, and if these performances keep up he'll never see that kind of money again.

I'd rather Moses at 7 and Siro at 6. Gives us some size at least.

Time will tell whether our Club has learn't anything on paying overs for over hyped players .

Teddy , Moses are worth it .

Seriously you compare Nathan Cleary and Ashley Taylor to Brooks and Brooks is not even in the same breath of fresh air as the other 2.
Titans are going to make a decision between Kane Elgey and Ash Taylor ? we should be enquiring for Ash Taylor at the very least IMO .

Nathan Cleary and Ash Taylor will be the opposing Halfbacks at State of Origin level within 3 years mark my words.
It depends who you talk to on this Forum, if you are Optimistic? it's because your delusional and need a reality check. If you are Pessimistic? Your accused of being a negative Nancy and to go and follow another Club.

As others have said playing injured and he certainly was not getting any help from his forwards today trying to defend the Raiders grollias

The only thing that really irked me was the stupid decision to carry on with the predetermined short ball to Lawrence early on and for the umpteent time. Either change the recipient or take the tackle, simple.

to allow Brooks to leave at the end of 2017. He's not the answer, the last 2 weeks have been glaringly obvious. Moses had a shocker today, but he's in the game, you can't fault his effort. Brooks shows glimpses, but the amount of time he spends as the invisible man is criminal.
As someone told me here a year ago - there a lot more who should be gotten rid of before Farah.

Woods is great. He was huge for us last week. He had a virus all this week.

In stating that we can't overpay Woods because Ava for instance has as good if not better go forward that Woods.

The fact you disagree doesn't surprise me.
I doubt you've ever even seen a game of footy live let alone played it.
