Career probably over after yesterday's game.
ACL + his age.

Expect forced retirement.

Well at least my last memory will be of Brooks grassing the guy even though it ended in a dud penalty

T-Rex in the Dave Taylor class of huge but lazy footballers.

I do feel sorry for the guy, but honestly his output over the last 4-5 seasons has been ordinary; nobody's fault but his.

Tackling him around the legs???????

Actually it was just to give the Eels a penalty as we were getting to close to their line.

Other way around Russell they where close to our line and repelled the attack

Your right - I must have been looking in the Refs mirror.

It was BS but I believe it was for holding down, not by Brooks, but the bloke who was over the top once TRex hit the deck (Naiqama?)

Personally I thought it was an unreal tackle and not fairly rewarded by ruck time by the refs. Not every dominant tackle has to be a backwards dumping.

Having had the 2 x ACL's in my life, not good news.

Having said that, the bloke was a classic Dave Taylor, Dane Carlaw type. Look like Tarzan, played like Jane.

Had some great games mixed in with complete rubbish over the years but no player should have injury end their career
