Luke Brooks

They were saying on 360 last night Tigers may want to offload him and pay some freight. Would he go any good at hooker?

              • You've watched him tackle playing halfback, probably when he's isolated.

                • If you can't tackle you can't tackle period. What's this nonsense of where he standing in line? 

                  • Might have something to do with who in the opposition is running at him, the proximity of teammates and the amount of space around him?

              • Mitch Moses couldn't tackle when he got here as well 

            • He's a small body, will be dominated in the middle. 

              • What's the height/weight difference between brooks and cook? I'd be curious to know.

              • Chief loves dominating hookers in the middle...

  • Even if Wests pay some of his salary he will still cost around 600-700k considering he will be on $1.2 million. Bit much for an unproven hooker, we are paying Hodgson less.

    • I cannot believe he is on 1.2m .....I don't care where you read it....nobody is that stupid. 

      IMO Brooks current value would be 400 as he is not a play maker, he is a spontaneous player and such would offer more as a 14 than a starting position.

      • 400k as a 14 would be too much. Even as a 14 he would not offer that much, he is not that good of an attacker. If you are buying Brooks, as a club, it is to have him as either a stop gap 6 or 7 to develop or buy a replacement or as a back-up but for his price that wont happen.

        I think he will end up as Halfback for Newcastle.
