Try assists have never been Brooks problem. His record for a young halfback is incredible in that regard. His problem has been consistency and being able to get repeat sets when a try isn't on.

If he gets his involvement up this year and improves his sixth tackle decision making, he will ge a long way to delivering on his early promise.

As I said in another thread , I don't think Brooks understands how good his running game is and could be if continually hits the ball at speed and takes them on

His kicking game from what I have seen in the 9's and the trials /Rd 1 has improved greatly

I've seen some promising signs from Brooks so far , he is definitely heading in the right direction

Took the whole team about ten or so minutes to get into the groove.

Agree he needs to pass at the line more, he doesn't commit enough. Otherwise I thought he was good without being spectacular.

Halfback is arguably the most important position in terms of team direction, speed, kicking, control etc
But we are happy if our halfback just doesn't make mistakes.
Come off it.
