@ElleryHanley said in Brooks.... what is he good for??:

Playing Brooks at 7 at this point is like playing Damien Cook there.

They both have one skill…running.

Zero game management skills.

I have supported Luke since day one, but he simply cant control or manage a game. He never controls sets in the opp 20. He just can’t do it. It has been too long to think he will get it. It just won’t happen.

.

Errors from MCK. and Nofoaluma cost us the game. Harsh reality is they lead directly to tries.

I am not reacting to tonight. Luke can’t control a game. When was the last time he controlled a set jn the opp 20? When was the last time he controlled the pace of the game? He just never has.

He is a Balmain kid and, trust me, I want to see him become great. But it just won’t ever happen. It has been the best part of 8 years now. And no sign of being able to manage a game. Eight years. At some point we need to accept it and move on.

Let’s forget how poor he was.

Just someone please answer WHY is he captain? He has zero captaincy skills. It has been 18 months and he is yet to show any leadership. Why???

@TigerTone said in Mbye:

i cant believe we are paying this bloke $950k a season. he does absolutely nothing
for us. and he is the captain.

Really is amazing.

I have not seen him once pressure a ref or defend a teammate on the ground…never once bark orders.

I love Madge, but he needs to explain why on earth Moses is captain. It makes zero sense.

And Mbye played SOO, I have no idea how.
He’s very very very ordinary

He played due to injuries. His bad read cost them the game.

He is not an origin player. He is a poor player who got a game and lost it.

THis game was made for a dominant 7 to control.

Brooksy invisible so far, yet again.

Good thing he got a game last weekend against penrith reserves for some fitness then.

He’ll be fine. Has more talent than a number of players. Just don’t rip in if he drops the ball once.

That was a nine a side game, right?

Fair dinkum, some of these comments make it sound like he’s making his boxing debut against Flloyd Mayweather.

It’s a team sport and he has plenty of experience around him plus a coach that wouldn’t throw him in at the deep end unless he knew he could handle it.

He’ll go ok.

It is not that, it is more that he has not played a game ALL season.

Think about that.

No rookie has ever come into first grade after not playing at all. They all come in with miles in their legs, Under 20s form / state cup experience.

This has never been done before. Development players would not even normally be allowed to play yet at all.

Good luck to the kid but he’s not up to nrl and he’s slow I feel sorry for Kane Bradley who’s just as big and is a lot faster

Are you sure about that? From what I have seen Bradley is quite slow and is being looked at more as a back rower.

I doubt Reece is slower.
