The stat to Fix: Brooks faces daunting Tigers’ task

News NRL

Luke Brooks had to shoulder the majority of the Wests Tigers kicking duties when Mitchell Moses departed for Parramatta, and will again take on plenty of responsibility given recruit Josh Reynolds is not renowned for his prowess off the boot.

The Tigers 2017 kicking output doesn’t bode well, with the black and golds forcing just over one dropout from their opposition a game. Their tally of 29 repeat sets was the third fewest in the NRL.

At the same time, they conceded 26 seven tackle sets last year by booting the ball dead – again a record that ranked them equal third last across the game.
