I’ve been a big fan of Brooks since he debuted but what I saw in the game against Manly has me seriously worried.
Everytime he got the ball he refused to play it out the back. Every single time he tried the short ball to the forward on his left. Absolutely no creativity or dynamic play whatsoever.
What has happened to him?! Kid had talent and now he’s only got one predictable play in him. His passing has never gotten good and his short kicking game has gone backwards from last year. His running game has barely been sighted this year. I can’t see him improving all 3 critical areas of his game in one off-season.
He could go alright at 9, but like others have said, his defence probably won’t hold up in the middle.
I really don’t know what we do with him.
