It was mentioned on fox coverage today that the tigers lead the stats on goal line dropouts forced on the opposition.This plus his defence makes him the best no 7 we have had probably since the JV i liked Prince but he was a awful defender.

Now leading the NRL in repeat sets as well...I am told mostly flukes tho..

When the Bulldogs were on a roll and getting offloads away. I was watching Brooks cover the whole backline. It was tackle three or four for the Dogs, we were on the back foot.
About three Tigers when in (brooks one of them) the Dogs player got the ball away, Brooks kept chasing the play and when into the next ruck late where the dogs player had slip the ball out Brooks keep chasing . Eventually the play stopped as the Brooks herded them towards the sideline and the Tigers line was back in sync.
Even though all this happen on tackle three, the stats man would have marked down Brooks for three missed tackles on the one play. Even though he shut down the whole monument of the set.
in Ivan we distrust

He has blossomed this year and im sure 100% of the fans are proud of him

Im sure its the Benji -Cleary effect that is bringing the best out of him

Mariner ran hard straight at him a few times early in the gamed he cut him down.

He also saved us on the try line late in the game when Hopoate stepped inside Fonua.

His goalie defence and general defence has improved out of sight.

And i reckon that more then anything else has given him confidence.

I think he needs to be 80-20 dominate playmaker in the side. Relook smooch more dangerous when he is on the ball.

Played well today. Has been playing well for some time now.
Yup he's playing real well this season, we'd be stuck without his performances. He's really playing up tempo footy. Cover tackles have been a highlight for me.
Well its nearly time to have a 'CRACK'....Go you :sign:

Great to see the strength of his game improving consistently. Getting our value for money from him this year.

Defence was outstanding, his cover tackle on Montoya at the beginning of the second half was awesome!

I also like how he's talking alot more even giving a spray to his teammates when needed. I think it was when he got a penalty and Grub took the quick tap, he turned around and gave someone an absolute gobful. He's always been a player who's been a bit quieter but too see him do that was refreshing to see!
