There is depth….and then theres the 2nd tier cap

2nd tier cap abolished with squads moving to 30 + Development players…exemptions will still need to be sought if you want to play a player outside your NRL squad…

What’s the limit a development player can be paid and can they have TPA’s ??

$60K
Anyone can earn TPA’s as long as NRL intellectual property is not used.

Rarely criticised?
Small fortune?
Everyone is saying it’s sink or swim for Brooks this year, not just us tigers fans, the media and experts.
Outside of Brodie Croft, Brooks would be the lowest paid halfback in the comp.
If his rated at the lower end of the tier well we’ve still got what we paid for. I thought he looked more active in last weeks trial and really got everyone going up the field all night.
Lawrence was making 20 meters a run on the back of Brooks delivery, when was the last time you saw that?
I get it people want a premier half to lead this team around. My thoughts are Brooks have never been coached properly and from what we can see in the preseason Ivan has him engaged and willing to learn all the skills required to be an organising half not just the pretty ones.
It sucks that his still learning his trade, but he is only 23 and at least this year the job his to prove to everyone he has what it takes.
The position he is in right now is perfect for us as a team, he can only go up.

Well said, agree with your summary.

Mate he has had a charmed life as a footballer. He has earnt a great deal of money with the club whilst producing fist all. He has never improved his kicking game, that some claimed was his strength coming into grade, and still looks substandard in this area. His front on defensive technique has improved but lateraly he still chases spider webs. He goes missing when the heat is on and his judgement of when to run the ball is terrible. He is a fraud who is damn lucky to have come through our system. Had it been through most others, hed be just about finishing his boilermaking apprenticeship right about now.

Wow its easy to spot the butthurt NSW fans on here lol….calm down fellas, not life and death.

Says the bloke who wrote us all a short story announcing his departure from here due to there being ‘‘more important things in life’’….only to be back within a week

I dont know what this has to do with anything but reading your other stuff the IQ is well below triple digits so ill let it go. I cant wait to see you say something about football one day. It will be hillarious pulling your opinion to pieces.

Funny comments looking back. He may have been sentenced lightly.

Fitness might need a top up.

I think it is more defence chat from the back he need practice in.
A little slower game may help him get it together.

That’s the other reason Russ. The quicker he gets up to speed in that aspect, the quicker we’ll see him in FG.

That makes no sense. You do not hone top flight skills against sub standard competition. You do so succeeding against the best.

Just stating what I’ve heard.

Fair enough and I’m just commenting on what I’m hearing/reading. If the guy has been demoted due to lacking one of the fundamental skills of the position coupled with troubling fitness levels, then i ask what he has been doing since last August. If Ivan thinks a trundle against some nuffnuffs in reggies will help, then we are in for another interesting season.

How about naot saying anything at all.
They could have done that.
I think you’ll find we have a very competitive very supportive group of players, from within that seems. Shame about the supporters.

Get off your high horse pal. People are well within their rights to be sceptical of Brooks. He seems the most charmed player in the comp, producing so very little yet rarely criticised and paid a small fortune to do it.

Fitness is definitely one of the aspects he needs to work on.

In my opinion it’s the wrong move by Cleary.
No matter what Lolohea says no player likes getting dumped to reggies.

Exactly. Unless its a smokescreen, its a poor management manoeuvre.
