Dropped from 1st grade!!!! Could do worse than have a nibble re coming to Manly? DCE @ 5/8 & Brooks @ 7........maybe needs a change ala Moses!!
Has definitely improved his tackling but if you watch a replay of the Souffs game you will see that he had a reoccurrence of his previous issues... dropped off a couple and probs why he has been dropped...He can run, these days he can also tackle, but those aren't the main jobs for a halfback. Organising players around him has always been his weakest point unfortunately. He'd probably make a brilliant 14 but no self respecting half wants that role (eg Croker, also Connor Watson springs to mind)
Do our recruitment team know there are other clubs than the Tigers?From Danny Weidler:
Luke who’s in mixThe Sea Eagles have put a three-year deal in front of Josh Schuster, but they also have an interest in Luke Brooks.
Sea Eagles coach Anthony Seibold is said to be a fan of Brooks and there is a feeling he would work beautifully with Daly Cherry-Evans. It is unclear if Brooks is seen as a back-up plan should Schuster be lured to Brooks’ current club, Wests Tigers.
With Cherry-Evans such a dominant halfback, Brooks would be able to bounce around as a running player. The option is only in the planning phase at this point.
