@The_Patriot Did Brodie Croft remain composed under pressure when we played the Storm in Auckland last year? Because I seem to recall him letting a kick off bounce over his head so we could get the ball back and score, botching a field goal to give us a seven-tackle set we went ahead off, not being given the ball by Cam Smith in the closing minutes and then being dropped for three months. The grass is always greener, I suppose.
if you think thats the true representation of Brody Croft then thats ok. Each to their own.
I see a guy who is going to end up one of if not the best half backs in the game.
I think Brooksie has a few years and a lot more games up his sleeve than Croft.
All the people sticking up for Brooks seem to think that anyone who looks critically at his game has it in for him.
Truth is everyone wants him to put it all together … its been over 120 first grade games now.
No matter what any of his support base say it can’t change the fact he isn’t great under pressure or a proven matchwinner.
He throws more hospital passes than anyone I can think of (poor Chris Lawrence) and drifts in and out of games.
He has a list of excuses a mile long as to why he hasn’t performed… Farah, Marshall, poor forwards, poor outside backs, poor game plans.
On the upside, his defence has improved immensely, he’s fast, he’s still young… plus he’s getting a lot of experience.
Only consistent performances will get people off his back.
Hope he comes good and we’ll all be happy!
How many halfbacks in the comp are proven match winners? You could count them on one hand and still have fingers to spare.
