Brooks

Post by Tigerheart_returns » Sat 10 Mar, 2018 9:21 pm

Don't want to start the bagging (....) but quite frankly on today's performance, I am scratching my head as to what role he plays in the team. I don't see him doing anything differently to what he has done in the last 18 months?

While our defence was massive today, our runners in motion was non existent often. There were plenty of times he tried to play at the line and the backs were still planted where they were as the ball was played.

Same scenario with any half breaks... it was the area of the game that had me on tilt for most of the 80.

Our whole edge defence was better. Brooks did his part.
Do you think we would have won today if you swapped Brooks for Moses?

I think Brooks and Marshal outplayed Cronk and Cornish on the back of the forwards...

Cheer up mate. We've just had a win. Hate to hear from you after a loss.

As long as he puts his body on the line like that and makes most of his plays I don't think you can drop him. Next thread....

If Benji doesn't play we don't win that game today.

Never thought I'd hear you say that TIGER...

I agree though, his time away has seen him return a more measured player.
And the sky is filled with light, can you see it?
And the black is really white, if you believe it.
And the longing that you feel, you know none of this is real;
You will find a better place, in this twilight...

The bottom line is Brooks is the only one basically in the club that has some real speed. Okay as a no7 today he was below par, but in future weeks he is probably the only guy who can match it with most in a foot race. My point is we have to keep with him at least in the short term. Maybe down the track we might need to look at Tui or Gamble but at present I will keep with Brooks

I thought Brooks had a good game defensively and just like most halves so for in round one, he also had some errors in his game.

We won lets enjoy it.

That makes two of us, I'd like to think that I call it like I see it, when I was ripping into Benji in the past I think even he'd admit his form was pretty poor back then.
From what I've seen of him since at the Dragons and Broncos he's a different beast now. That's why I was happy and actually looking forward to having him back

As Cultured Bogan quoted : we don't need all these holier than thou threads . Everyone on this forum including myself wants us to win each week !
When we win we post positive comments as I did in the Benji thread .
Geo commented that we need more ( positive ) Hobbo quotes .
You came on and carried on .....

when we lose we criticise ....

Simples !

That was easily Brooks best defensive game in a WT's jersey

Really angry that we didn't see him take the line on more often , he just doesn't realize how good his running game could be
