I think Brooks is fine, he’s not a match winner or a leader, he’s a role player. You need those sorts of players. I’d take him over most halves in the game. The trouble is our expectations for him are too high. Most halves look good when the team is going well and don’t look good when they’re not and he’s one of those. Very few players (Cam Smith, Cooper Cronk, DCE, Thurston, Benji, Shaun Johnson) are able to actually change the momentum of a game with their brilliance and he’s definitely not one of them. But as for dumping him, who is his replacement out there? Where are you buying a better player from? It’s frustrating watching him play badly in a match like tonight, but it’s only a reflection of where this team was at in terms of organisation and attack. People flat footed, Grant doing circles, Reynolds doing three things at once and Brooks confused and a bit uncertain about what to do. It was ugly tonight, and so was his performance, but there’s no better option and he’s still better than most and not the problem in this team.
