Interesting game from him. Overall i think it was good.
Early on he made some crappy plays, looked a little out of his mojo like last year, maybe trying too hard to get that form we know he has. Bad forward pass to Suli but i do believe Suli should have been deeper. The pass hit him on the chest but Brooks should have realised Suli was too flat and not thrown it. Had to run the ball a few times when it wasn’t on cos the rythm with himself and his runners was off, but i like that he just took the hit on those occasions and not throw a pressure pass like he did in the opening minutes when Elijah dropped it.
Later in the game he appeared to just play. Looked a little like he took on the Moses attitude and started doing things with speed and arrogance. He looked much better. He took control, his kicking stepped up and he looked dangerous running the ball.
Much more composed in his short kicking game which is a huge difference to last year.
His defence was great. No tries down his side and cant remember any line breaks down his side.
I think round one was a step in the right direction for him.
