Well this topic has advanced to 61 pages on my phone so it appears Jackson is the flavour of the month.
However, after reading all the posts it appears it’s more about Brooksy.
Guys can we give Brooks a break. His name has been bashed and thrown around this forum like he was a sadistic mass murderer.
I get it, he’s not an organiser and is too quiet but he can defend and has the talent.
He’s with us in 2022 (at this stage) so get behind him you tiger supporters, show your stripes as they say.
Please talk more about Hastings, I’m sure the learned people we have in this forum can dig up some good oil on him.
Who says Brooksy is not an organiser?
An organiser needs a lot of support, gosh the only real support Benji got was from his golfing buddy. To get Asu’s support he resorted to throwing the ball to where he wanted him to be. Most people wouldn’t find it odd that our players of last season weren’t considered by other teams, but Brooksy was.
Run out of friends to argue with mate?
Unsure of your angle. As far as an organising half back goes, that’s his job - a link between forwards and backs, hence the positions name ‘half’.
Do you think he is as verbal and intimidating as a Cooper Cronk or Therston.
Do some research in Brooks posts/archives, plenty of opinions there about lack or organisational skills.
This is a Hastings topic, maybe you could start a Brook topic or regenerate the old ones (but that will arc up the haters though)
Did you read my post fully mate, I like Brooks and we should support him!
Chat privately with me if you disagree, Cheers bud
There’s only 2 players that I have disliked while they wear the jersey, anasta, and tamou. Brooks used to be my favourite player about 5 years ago. He has not improved. He could maybe improve with a change of scenery, but…
My biggest reason for wanting him gone is that this year is supposed to be a nothing year, according to Madge/Sheens. Why do we persist with Brooks then?
Give the keys to Hastings and move on.
Hastings will play 6
Goal posts being moved I see.
Think he’ll move to 7 when AD gets back.
Brooks to bench
I can see Brooks being dropped completely by end of season. We have 3 guys who want to be NRL halves fighting it out for 2 spots.
Wrong thinking. Totally wrong.
You have 3 halves in a good team, not halfbacks, halves. Lets soundoff:
Souths - Adam Reynolds, Cody Walker and Benji Marshall.
Penrith - Nathan Cleary, jerome Luai and Matt Burton.
Storm - Jerome, Munster and Nicho Hynes.
Two halves start, if they fail to break the team then backup option steps up. Thats why Marshall was a good buy for souths. Reynolds and walker blocked, Marshall can make stuff happen.
Does this model work for Brooks, Doueini and Hastings? Nope.
Not with Brooks at 7, Hastings being 7 and Douehini playing a 5/8 … who knows what Tyrone peachy will be here? (i suspect lock or 14).
We can have 3 guys fighting for 2 spots no problem. We cant have 2 NR 7’s and i think this will mean brooks goes to 5/8 and Doueihi to Center which IMHO is the best result.

This could happen as well but there could be some competition there as well. We have to wait and see what happens. It’s going to be interesting.
