I dunno I think there is a quality half in him somewhere... It's just frustrating waiting for him to find it.
We've all seen brief glimpses from him of the whole bag of tricks a good half needs, consistency has been his problem... I see a lack of confidence an issue with him too... Saw it yesterday with him passing off to Lolohea on the 5th to kick after his first few were average
Yeah to me it looks like he needs some intense mentoring from a good halves coach. There are things he needs to learn, and those glimpses of his ability need to become commonplace.

If that doesn't work... "Houston, we have a problem"

My biggest problem with Brooks is he can't seem to get a repeat set.
I can't remember the last time he has kicked and we've trapped someone in goal.

I didn't catch that game.
He doesn't get many repeat sets and that's our momentum killer.
Do you have the stats for how many repeat sets all year?
It would be interesting.
He needs to get with Reynolds and learn how to get them.

I have a lot of faith in Brooks. But I am afraid that whilst he is quick on his feet, he is slow between the ears.

Next year we are going to have a running hooker, 2 running halves and a running fullback.
Its going to be like a headless chicken coup.

He's too easily distracted, can't kick short and his D is still a liability despite improving slightly.

Tyson Gambles going to take his jersey sometime in the near future, and then we'll sign Nathan.
Dreaming is a wonderful thing at times.

We have no chance of signing Nathan and I doubt if Cleary will Gamble on Tyson who has never played an NRL game in his life.

Face the facts - Brooks is it. If Cleary can turn Nathan into a reasonably good half back (and that is all he is at this stage, still rocks and diamonds imo), he can do the same with Luke.

As long as we don't fowl the opposition, we should be ok.

Allright . . . . so apart from health, sanitation and the aqueduct, what have the Romans ever done for us ?

Is it too late to bring Moses back as half? Channel 7 news just posed the question "Is Moses the Messiah to lead Parra to the promised land?' All I can say is we're doomed to damnation for a long time. You don't reject a Saviour and get off lightly.

That's what I'm talking about. Every set we should be looking for a repeat set.
He should be a champion kicker that can make it sit up in goal on command.
I expect to see a repeat set attempt more than the usual bomb we see on the 5th. Im not understanding the whole game plan.

Bombs rarely get repeat sets.

We might score a lot of points. How good would that be. Improved defence and non stop attack. I thought we'd be lucky to get a top 8 spot but now I can see a premiership.

Well I can definitely state that getting rid of this cretin was a great moment for this club. I wish the guy the worst in life as well.

Honestly - what should the club do. Let players run the club into the ground.
