Wests Tigers halfback Luke Brooks says he's wary of looking any further down the track than this Sunday's clash against the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs at Campbelltown Sports Stadium.
Sitting on top of the ladder after two rounds and looking to make it three wins in a row to start the year for the first time in club history, there's certainly a good feeling at Wests Tigers for Brooks and his teammates at the moment, but the reigning Dally M Halfback of the Year was conscious of looking past Sunday's game.
"I think [the good start] it's been a mixture of Michael Maguire coming in and the team focusing on our defence and our wrestle in the first two games," Brooks said.
"But it's only Round 2 and there's definitely still a long way to go.
"Hopefully we're there when it counts and not just now.
Brooks enjoying combination with Farah
"We really can't look too far ahead," Brooks continued.
"We've got a game against the Bulldogs this week and they've made some changes and they've got some players that want to come in prove themselves.
"They're always a tough team so we'll have to be on our best performance.
"They’ll be pumped with some new players coming in, including some debutants, so it will be a good test for us to back up what we've done so far."
We're back in #OurJungle this week!
Brooks also had special praise for Robbie Farah, with the halfback's combination with the hooker going well through the opening two weeks of the competition.
“All the way throughout Robbie's career, he's been one of the dominant players for the team," Brooks enthused. "Like every team, it’s all about finding that mix and so far it’s going well and we’re playing some great footy as a team. He’s turning back the clock back to his prime and the team is really benefiting from it.”
