I reckon our best halves pairing will be Brooks and Marshall. I also like IC but he stuffed up buying Reynolds.
Pretty savage seeing he hasn't even played a game yet.

Brooks might of let us down at the end but the service from 9 killed any chance of coming back.
Brooks is just as much to blame, he over runs the ruck, the hooker shouldn't pass, but did twice tonight at crucial times
We need a new half back ASAP
Yeah right! there's a tree full of them out the back - you just have to pick one. Lol
Yeah it's called a Christmas tree !
And Santa's bringing Benji back ...,he'll do !


Even Reynolds at halfback would be an improvement than our resident garden gnome
We need mongrel ..
No more plodders !

Don't get the logic. If Benji is the answer, we are in trouble. He can't organise either!

I hope I'm wrong but I think signing Reynolds was a really poor decision.

I have big concerns next year in regards to our halfback and hooker positions.
Both Brooks and Liddle don't fill me with confidence and they're in key positions, the most important positions on the Footy field IMO.

The rest of the team looks to be coming together nicely, great effort tonight and I can see the making of a competitive team being assembled but the 7 and 9 worry me.
Certainly wouldn't worry about Liddle - he is quick, good defender, creative and a pretty good passer.
Needs to work on his kicking game and he'll be a great all rounder.

Brooks - I still say he will be ok under Cleary, give him the off season, a new partner - all the while remembering that Nathan had a great teacher - now Brooks has that same teacher. Watch him improve.
What did JT who was a class halfback in his day teach Brooks the 2.5 year he had him.?...see how Moses has taken his game to a new level since he joined Parra!........time for Brooks to stand up or ship out

Why? He is playing in a totally dud team at the moment for a coach at the moment who seems to have no answers.

I think he will be a totally different player with a new club, new coach, new partner and a club that will be going somewhere Earl.

Have faith in Cleary and have heart in a new beginning for him and all of us.

I hope you are right in regards to Reynolds. I would love him to prove me wrong.

Are you now rating JT with Cleary?

Don't be too harsh people,on McIIwrick - I hear he's carrying an injury.

Brooks no excuses. We should sign on the cheap halfback Drew Hutchinson from the Dragons.Still quite young,big,good kicking game and good defense.Good for depth at the very least,and would be cheap.Unwanted at Dragons cause of the arriving Hunt.Cheap,put pressure on Brooks,and Benji could mentor both. Better than LittleJohn. A cheap,no risk signing.
reckon he would cost much wayne?
Would be massively cheap I reckon,about the same as LittleJohn.His biggest downside is injury prone.But,his few first grade games at the Dragons,last season, showed more than LittleJohn ever has.

No, I'm saying Brooks didn't develop at all in 2 1/2 years under a Head Coach who was a halfback...

Emotions aside well done boys. 16-0 down, if that was under our previous coach it would have ended up 50-0. You came back and went toe to toe with one of the premiership favourites. Great effort.

So why don't you front up to training.
I'm sure Ivan and the boys would be in awe of your athletic prowess.

Like you Earl, I have had my reservations about signing him, but I'm beginning to think the change of scenery will do him good. He has some ugly plays and brain explosions that I'm not real keen on, but he is a very passionate player and he can be great in a team that is going forward... and we will be going forward next season :mrgreen:

If Ivan can stamp out his stupid plays, or at least tone them down a bit, I think Reynolds with his energy & never say die attitude, will end up being an asset to our team. In any case, I think that having Benji lurking behind the scenes will certainly keep both Reynolds and Brooks on their toes - masterstroke by Cleary I reckon.
