Brooks with quick service, balls on the chest, service in front



  • Completely different player.

    Gets the ball in stride and uses his speed and guile…hits his runners on the chest where he has lined them up. Not out of synch. Not a moment late.

    His very best moments this season came with Liddle at 9 and the past two weeks.

    Coincidence?

    Robbie “taking on the line”, trying to milk pens, slowest service in the game… just does not work with Brooks.

    Huge decision for Madge next week IF Robbie declares himself fit…



  • We look better without Farah in the side. Tigers legend through and through, so would love to see him get a farewell.

    But I’d rather make the finals so Reynolds needs to play 9. The thing I like about Reynolds is he always sees Brooks as the first option and Benji second.

    Very tough one, but we do look a lot better.

    Robbie takes too much ball away from the halves.

    It is not that he is terrible, but is is that less ball for the halves = we play worse.

    And, at this stage, he can’t help himself. There is no way he would come back and just ‘shuffle’ the ball to the 6 and 9 at speed.

    He’d play his own game and slow it all down.



  • I for one absolutely love our lil number 7 wouldn’t change him for any other half in the game…Madge is really starting to show what his game has got and still working on getting the best out of him and if our team plays to everyone’s expectations well into the future sky’s the limit for the little bugger👏👍



  • Yeah nah, no Robbie, he can do a lap with a boys after we win.

    We look heaps better without him at hooker…2 40+ games should be a bit of an indicator for Madge

    WHEN we win next week 🙂 we’ll either play Manly or the Eels for the first finals games…wouldn’t mind seeing us boot out either tbh



  • @Tigerdave Let’s just boot them both out 😉



  • i’ll be astounded in farah plays



  • @larry2005 Going off Fittler whose been talking to him, he’s no chance.



  • Brooks has been performing with and without Farah. The Sharks are a different beast.

    They will target and hammer Brooks all day. Against the Sharks you need a second playmaker. Matterson also has to shadow Wade Graham all day otherwise he will kill Lawrence and others on their left edge.

    The game is setup for Brooks he will be up against a weaker edge defensively and also in attack. Matterson has to be on the right edge all game defensively against Wade Graham.

    If Mbye is fit Marsters is straight out his mind is elsewhere.

    Marsters? You’re having a laugh. Momo back to the wing and Jennings left right out.



  • We look better because we are going forward. Seriously. If anything the service is worse.

    Oh and we played two TERRIBLE teams!

    But hey… Farah didn’t play so let’s link it to him. Where is the Farrah shot JFK thread.



  • Potter called it years ago, then Taylor. Fit or not he doesn’t get a run.

    I dont disagree about Jennings. Marsters has been very poor.



  • @gallagher Think Ill trust Madge more then 2 coaches that wont be sighted in the NRL again

    That’s off topic, but I agree.
