Josh Addo Carr Contract Discussion

JAC would compliment Brooksy’s game like ice to water on a scorching hot summer day.

Lets give them something they might want…Luke Brooks to Storm for Addo-Carr…

Sadly 1/3 of the forum would like this

I think you’ll find it’s well more than 1/3 who have realised the Brooks experiment failed years ago already but whatever because sadly 2/3 of the forum would rather us persist with players like Brooks, nofa and Lawrence rather than make the top 8 because they “try their best”.

Just like some people think Trump is a genius, Iam dumbfounded that people still have it in for Brooks. Everyone is entitled to their opinion…but I am still dumbfounded, I rate him above Ivan’s little jaw

We have all the money but no one wants to come here.

I think we should temper this summation. There were very few off contract players this off season, the majority of players prefer to stay with their current club plus the Tigers need to be selective about their signings, not just grab anyone. Ever the optimist, I think our opportunities will come. We just need to be patient.

Fair, and it’s 100% frustration from my end.

But after Matterson (and letting go of Esan) we really needed a win, and so far it’s been disappointing. Luciano is a good signing don’t get me wrong, but we lack a game breaker and I was hoping we’d get one this off-season.

Still plenty of time to go.

My Biggest Frustration is the fact we released Matterson & Marsters without getting anything back or having replacements in place. I think if we played hardball we would of got something or held off until we had replacements but also understand why we did this.
I think we will regret the Marsters one as he was injured last year and him been fully fit will be back to his best…

We did not get nothing. We received full value of his contract plus 3-4 months of this yers salary which the club would be up for while negotiating a suitable release deal.
So on my maths that’s around +$500k.
Hardly nothing.

i think what he meant is that we released two of our starting first grade players and have been unable to use the money to strengthen our lineup. Leilua is a fine signing but he is not top line. Not meaning to be critical of the club but this offseason’s recruitment (to date) has been a failure.

Yes but the fat lady did not do her performance yet!

Can she play fullback or hooker

Hmmm…can’t seem To recall if I have ever seen a fat fullback but on the other hand…perhaps best left unsaid really.

I raise you 1x Tui Lolohea

Lol poor Tui, I really don’t think he was that fat. George Rose was fat!

Now the family is collecting fat pay checks leading young footballers to their demise!

Brooks’ defense was outstanding last season too - you can tell Garner gave him a lot of confidence. Some shots he put on bigger men were impressive, he’ll kick on I’ve no doubts

Brooks gave Garner confidence more like…snapped Burgi like a twig…

Still can’t ice a game like chee Kam can

@jirskyr
Teddy and Brooks are worlds apart.

JAC is the best winger in the comp and Brooks is probably bottom five halfbacks.

If Brooks had potential and we had no idea how he might play then for sure a gamble for a class halfback is worth it, but with our Brooks history and seeing how amazing JAC is, this theoretical swap is a no brainer.

I just don’t understand why we all don’t realize that we have to do something drastically different to win.
The pack is arguably weaker than last year and people are getting excited that Brooks will play better behind this pack. What the??
Why fall into the same trap as the last five years
because Brooks will invariably disappoint again and everyone will blame our pack again.

Just let’s all get a head start and admit our pack is weak right now and Brooks has a pass for another crappy season.

Bottom 5 in your mind, not supported by any stats.

Sloppy.

Anyway Luke Brooks isnt our problem.

Fullback is.
Hooker too in 2020…

I think 2021 we’re looking good if we can sign a good fullback and some one to take over from Benji.

All making sense now, they didn’t sign him as a back they signed him to replace Burgess in the second row.
