His overall demeanour against the Storm was great. From the 70 min on, I think he really stepped up when the game was on the line.
Not just the desire to get to the ball first for the try but also a couple of minutes later at the other end when the Storm were attacking. The ball was loose (double knock on) but the ref hadn’t blown the whistle and Brooks got to the ball on the ground first. Everyone talks about leadership. Leadership isn’t just talk and waving hands around (that’s important to) but setting the right tempo in attack is what I see Brooks doing this year.
Also playing behind a pack that is bending the line makes a massive difference
Yep and I think some pressure to keep his spot. He looks like he is playing with more aggression and confidence which I am sure Reynolds and Benji would be trying to bring out of him.
