Titans are doomed for next year,the team that runs 9th never seems to improve

So where does that leave us ?

Up or down in 21 ?

That is the million dollar question

@Jay said in Brooks: What exactly has gone wrong?:

I don’t want to Troll but can Brooks throw wide passes? I just see him either throw a tough ball to the fella right next to him or throw a lame dummy and get tackled, or run in a circle and get tackled.

Great pass certainly better then Benjis to row z

Why are we after Sailor? To play where?

He would be the best 5/8 at the club if we signed him. Still super raw though.

Geez not sure about that. Not from what I’ve seen so far.

Great attacking player. Would have way more try assists, line breaks and forced dropouts than Reynolds or Walters. Doueihi and Mbye not sure how they’ll go but they won’t have as much spark as he does. He’s lightning fast and has nice short kicking.

Agree to all …
The only issue would be the excess baggage he’d come With … his old man !

Big Dell sticks his nose in everything

Which is why i would stay well away from Sailor same with any of the Hopoate boys though most of them are more influenced by their mother than their father

@Papacito said in Brooks: What exactly has gone wrong?:

I’m constantly amazed that after seven seasons and 145 games, people are still waiting for (nearly) 26 year old Brooks to come of age and/or step out from the shadow of Farah, Marshall or whoever.

This year he was thoroughly outplayed by a rookie hooker and a senior citizen five-eighth.

He’s an average halfback that can’t deliver us a top 8 finish.

I have to have a slightly different opinion than yours Papacito,only because I look at the way he had to chop and change his playing style to suit at least 4 different coaches with different structures and gameplans…you also have to understand Luke is timid by nature and with Benji gone he may become a lot more aggressive as 2021 progresses

What about a Cooper Cronk …he has a different club coach , different All Stars coach , different State coach and different Australian coach all in one season …all different styles …maybe 2 different in a week

Everyone STOP with the excuses for Brooks , Marshall , our backline , our forward pack , our defence and the results they achieve every week , and every season

They aren’t good enough , they aren’t acceptable , and shouldn’t be acceptable by anyone involved with this club whether it is a fan ,coach ,CEO ,Football manager , medico ,assistant coach or recruitment or retention guru

Reality is tough …but you need to deal with it

What til Rd 25 next year …when things are even worse

Main difference is Cronk never played in a poor side Brooks never played in a strong side

@TSupps05 said in Scouting...:

Personally i have always thought we should experiment with targeting South African Union players, mainly wingers because they are crazy fast and a very untouched market

I dont think you ever saw Len Killeen play he was probably the slowest winger i have seen but a great goal kicker.I cant remember any other S.Africans who have played here though it is possible some have.Admittedly in his days apartheid was still in place and there were no none white players in the springbocks

@weststigerman said in Signing Suggestions & Rumours:

Cartwright for example has been probably the worst player in the NRL at the Titans, but when he first came into first grade at Penrith he was amazing. 1 year contract on minimum wage could work, might fail but we won’t lose much.

We would lose a valuable spot in our roster and we cant afford to do that while we are carrying Packer Reynolds and MBye even on minimum wage which i doubt he would accept

@Jay said in Rugby on its knees after broadcaster walks away:

Korobete, Cooper, Beal, O’Connor on mates rates, they need a better employer. Minimum wage each in Tigers

Would certainly take Koro back but a pass on the others
