Brooks



  • Geez he is a good runner of the ball and has tackled well this year - but he can be a headless chook in terms of organising a team.

    He has had a good season don’t get me wrong. His best season in the NRL. However there is an organising part of his passing game which is missing completely for mine. Not getting the team into good shape or formation under pressure.

    Maybe Im being harsh as he doesnt have a whole lot of great targets. Its not like we have blokes inside and outside of him that will make him look great in terms ion sprinting away or running over blokes.

    Im not saying trade him -he is the best we have. In a team lacking speed. But aspects of his game frustrate me greatly 100 games in.


  • Banned

    I think he still goes missing a bit too much.



  • He stands too far up in the line when going for a clearing kick

    He needs to be back 10 meters like when Jamie Soward was at the Dragons .



  • Geez - do we need a Brooks thread every week?
    He’s a dam fine player doing a great job consistently in an average team.
    And he’s loyal



  • Has trouble reading a game and making decisions based on that.
    His kick that went dead in goal late in the game today to give Manly a 7 tackle set is a perfect example.

    Couldn’t organise a chook raffle.

    Not a halfbacks bootlace. Can run a bit though.

    He’s an Immortal in more ways than one! :master:



  • He should be playing at 5/8 - he runs well, very quick, passes well, backs up , doesn’t read a play all that well and doesn’t organise all that well. He throws a lot of hospital passes because he doesnt read the game fast enough one out from the ruck.

    Mayby its not the dog ?



  • He’d be going a lot better if he got the ball earlier - instead it goes to Marshall 75% of the time.

    Doesn’t get it most of the time even when he calls for it.
