Dean Halatau on ABC Radio stated that poor play the balls and positioning on the fifth tackle really frustrates good sixth tackle kicking options. Nice to hear this from a recently retired WT's player.

Brooks will go ok, stupid forwards like sue who tries an ordinary offload 7 minutes to go please he, s a dope.it's not rocket science would have dropped him to seconds for that Just plain dumb.if we sign another decent backrower sue would be lucky to get a start.

All I'm hoping is Reynolds has a short kicking game and a better option than put a bomb up no matter where we are on the field.

If Cooper Cronk is retiring ( Which I think he will do ) why can't we hire him to teach Brooks and Gamble.
This assumes that you can just throw a great player in there and all of a sudden these guys will turn into great players. They simply might not have the ability or Cronk could be a dud coach.

Brooks is a question mark but we are a very bad football team across the park. No go forward, slow play the ball, no edge backrowers with strike power, centres are average, Kev playing fullback. Brooks has no faith and runs the ball often as he has no options. All we have is going wide to Nofa.

As long as he's not another Ballin and doesn't go around trying to trip people we will be OK,i hope.
The big question is why Des is letting him go,he offered to stay for less money so the Club could be under the Cap and still Des. didn't want him.
Anyway we find out soon enough.

Because a) he won't want to come to a basket case like us and b) I'm pretty sure the Storm have already teed that up

Reynolds will be massive for this club and what they hope to achieve in raising their profile.
On the field he has a lot of flaws but if you keep things simple and give him plenty of support he should be able to do what he does best 'Running'.
I don't see him helping out Brooks one Iota with Game Management. That is a lesson Brooks has to learn himself this year. Just look at how well accomplished Mbye is playing along side Reynolds.
If Brooks learns his lesson this year, Reynolds will complement.
But please don't go thinking that we've signed our Blake Green to support our DCE.

I agree. Reynolds will do what he does independent of, or in cooperation with, Brooks but I don't see him as an organiser. Hopefully Brooks will have his game management sorted before Reynolds gets here.

I heard Cronk was signing with the storm as a support coach and a tv gig.

I didn't see the game in full but I think we will see Brooks improve next year. There just isn't any shape to the team and a genuine lack of depth.

Brooks will be a lot better with Reynolds holding his hand - no coincidence that his best form came when playing alongside Anasta.

Easy answer. Des wanted Kieran. The Dogs must be under huge cap pressures. I think Des just went Reynolds + Kieran means we loose our forwards.

Hard answer, what is wrong with Reynolds? I think Reynolds will either be a boon 5/8 for us or if he does not work out there, possibly the best Center in the comp. If he is fit, then his only defect is his neglectful passing game. Otherwise Reynolds is probably better then Kieran for us, the Dogs however don't need a strong defensive 5/8.
