Taylor, Clark, Lawrence, Eisenhuth, Seyfarth and now McIntyre all been given a run. All guys in the final year of their contract I believe, Madge is definitely giving them a chance to earn a contract extension.
Let’s hope McIntyre is not a plodder like the rest of the above names.
Okay, you taking ash taylor? Mitchell Pearce? Chad Townsend? Brodie Croft? Jake Clifford? Blake Green? Ryley Jacks? Kyle Flanagan? Lachlan Lewis? Ben Hunt? Adam Clune?
Ash Taylor made Brooks look second rate only a week ago.
And I think Taylor is probably the most overrated player in the NRL.
What does that tell you about Brooks?
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.
Sorry but your number 7 is not a role player.
Your number 7 should be controlling the team, leading the team and yes, he should be a match winner.
A halfback is not a role player, it’s a key position in the team.
He just doesn’t have it.
Anyone who thinks this guy is good enough must seriously be clutching at straws, or watching a different game.
“Brooks needs the forwards to go forward”
“Brooks will be better without Marshall in the team”
“Brooks and Reynolds will be better as Brooks can take control”
“Oh Brooks won the Dally M two years ago”
Enough is enough. This team is not going anywhere without a quality halfback and he IS NOT ONE!
