Absolutely. Id like to see him take on the line close to the try line.
I thought last night was the perfect mix from the two of them.
I agree,2 or 3 wins out of the next five, with signs of further strengthening of the roster is going to be important.GNR4LIFE wrote: ↑Sat 04 Mar, 2017 9:25 amIts been suggested that early results will have a huge bearing on where they think the club is heading. If that's true, last night was a solid start.king sirro wrote: ↑Sat 04 Mar, 2017 9:23 amon the re-signing thing, i was thinking during last nights game that Brooks and Moses would be crazy to leave. I know Souths are poor, but the style we play could take these guys all the way.
This^^^ Luke being involved from the opening whistle is an important part of his game.
He was sometimes guilty of taking a back seat too often last year, and it was good to see him with ball in hand for longer.
Still needs to show patience and set-up his opposite defenders, but I'm expecting to build into 2017 and become a top flight 7

Lol. One photo of a tackle doesn't change the fact he is a defensive liability.
I can show you a photo of Tim Moltzen scoring a try or a line break. Doesn't make him a superstar.
I'm glad you chose a photshoped picture. They edited out the other defender to make him look good in the west tigers app.

Conspiracy obviously...after they read your post..
Yes. Tackle assist. Great idea.Geo. wrote: ↑Sun 05 Mar, 2017 10:25 ammatchball wrote: ↑Sun 05 Mar, 2017 10:21 amGreat retort. Your photo doesn't look as impressive when it shows the tackle wasn't one v one.
The forward there protecting him as usual. The babysitter that handicaps our defensive line.
I hope Rowdy got a tackle stat for that..
Now Rowdy has that to go along with his try assist.
Brooks zero try assists.
6th best try assists in the comp in 2015. Dropped off a tad in 2016 with 14 from 21 matches, but still up there with Barba, Milford, Cameron Smith etc. But let's judge from one game. That's crazy.

Didn't make too many bad decisions on the last tackle, if any the other night. Against the Dragons last year about 30 metres out he gave a nothing pass on the last to a back rower and it was a turnover. It's little things like that he needs to hit on the head. Defence might be a worry, but he isn't the first halfback to struggle in that department. He looked better with the ball in hand and more involved. That's the biggest take away for him Friday night.
One game is too early to judge I agree but the same problems still exist from years past.Masterton wrote: ↑Sun 05 Mar, 2017 10:47 am6th best try assists in the comp in 2015.

People can be blinded by the win and the team performance so I understand.
I'm hoping for more improvement in defence so let's see.
