Wonder if his form would have dropped off if he didn't go to the America and stayed with us.
Not like it has I wouldn't think.
Chopping and changing training types, body shapes, what he is training for
He had started to get pretty good at fullback then he takes time away and then goes to a worse club, rusty, cops criticism, has to fight for his spot, being bumped around constantly fullback, wing, centre
I do think he'd be a better fullback and player right now if he hadn't left NRL

There was no way he wouldn't be in someone's top 30, he's good enough for that.

Maybe we didn't want to scare off Metcalf by loading up on too many halves in front of him?

Well that worked out well. It’d be ironic if that’s the reason we didn’t & he signed with the club that got him haha. I actually hope Taylor does come good even though we didn’t get him. Him firing with Hynes would have been good though.

Knights had upped the anti in trying to get Brooks.
They sent Starford Toa to Tigers, I thought that may have been step 1 in a Brooks move.

Assuming Hastings has been active at Tigers training they will know if they can afford to let Brooks go or not. Guess also where dooey is on recovery.
