Wests Tigers halfback Luke Brooks says the form of halves partner Mitchell Moses has been a big reason behind his side's late surge on to the edge of the top eight.
Having won eight of their last 13 matches to sit just one point outside the top eight heading into the final game of the regular season, depending on results, Wests Tigers could record their first finals appearance since 2011 should they beat the Raiders this weekend.
Part of the reason behind the run has been the form of Moses, who has recorded an impressive 10 try-assists, seven linebreaks, and two tries his past eight games.
And according to Brooks — certainly qualified to talk about the five-eighth he's played with since his junior days at Holy Cross — Moses' improvement has not gone unnoticed.
"I think Mitch has been awesome in the past few months," Brooks said.
"With the team playing well, I think his game has really grown.
"He's really grown as a leader, on and off the field; he's found his voice in the team.
"He's playing with a lot of confidence.
"Growing up with him, I've seen the way he played when he was younger, so it's no surprise to me how he's going, but he's playing really well at the moment and it's great to see."
"We are in control of the team, and we feel that," Brooks enthused.
"That's helped our game — being able to organise the team and take control."
