The 2015 season saw Luke Brooks take a lot more control in attack, partnering fellow young playmaker Mitchell Moses for the entire season in the halves.

Following on from a 2014 season where he picked up the Dally M Rookie of the Year Award, Brooks continued his development and certainly made his presence felt with 10 tries in 23 matches — missing just one game in the back half of the season.

With a NRL All Stars appearance to start the year, Brooks finished the 2015 with 16 try-assists — placing him fifth in the NRL behind Johnathan Thurston, Benji Marshall, James Maloney and Daly Cherry-Evans — while he also finished fifth in tries amongst halves.

Best Game — Round 14 vs. South Sydney Rabbitohs

While his two-try effort in Round 8 against the Bulldogs came close, Brooks’ best game of the year was arguably his Round 14 display against South Sydney.

The crafty playmaker scored a try, set up two others, made 103 metres (including a line-break) and displayed a quality kicking game with 272 kick-metres.

 

Season Highlight — Round 14 vs. South Sydney Rabbitohs

In the 43rd minute of play, with Wests Tigers holding a slim 12-6 advantage, Brooks took the line on from his own 40-metre mark. The Leichhardt Wanderers junior threw a dummy and showed great speed in a 60-metre sprint to the try-line. The highlight of the passage of play was the pace he showed to get around Rabbitoh Alex Johnston at fullback.
