I’m not referring to just this game, and he could be easily be excused for being off his game in this instance,
I’m saying that he’s been like this for most of his career, and there is no consistency in his game.
I’d love to see him killing it ,on a regular basis but I’m starting to think that it’s not going to happen.
He’s always been given excuses for his bad days and there’s always been people ready to blame others .
I will point out ,that Luke himself has never blamed anything for his patchy form, to my knowledge anyway, but geez it’s frustrating when he goes missing in games.
He’s got so much ability. But he just disappears.
ŃBrooks does have the ability, but I’ve thought for a long time that he doesn’t have the mongrel in him that first grade requires.
He’s really never really had to be made responsible for his many games where he simply has no impact.
I can recall way back saying that both him and Moses needed to be dropped to reserves, but, no matter how bad he played, there was no consequences, he’s still there next week, ,
I wondered last season how he was the halfback of the year, , but hoped that he would be pushed to being a better player by getting that award, but nothing’s changed.
He’s never had to be able to turn up week after week,
It’s always been a big game one week and then three or four where heslooks like he’s phoning it in.
Not much changes.
The difference is that Penrith have a few higher levels that they can to go to, I don’t think that we have that luxury, at least not as many as we need to be competitive with even the middle standard teams,.
It doesn’t seem to matter who the Coach is, we’re still the same old team
Well, the 13div 1 teams all played at Ormeau in the Vikings Rep trial, and unfortunately the Helensvale
Boys picked today to have a rare 4 point loss.
Bad handling cost them badly, but it probably won’t hurt them to have a loss around now.
Complacency may have played a part, , but I would not miss the next game against Palm Beach,
It should be a ripper.
Palm beach’s handling was off as well, but they held the ball long enough when it mattered, to get the last try when it mattered,
bring on the Comp games!
