Tim Sheens dismisses Luke Brooks scuttlebutt

Speculation that Wests Tigers half Luke Brooks would leave to link up with the Newcastle Knights has been firmly quashed by the club.

This morning the club issued a strong statement from former coach and new director of football Tim Sheens allaying any concerns Brooks was moving on.

 “Luke Brooks is contracted with Wests Tigers until at least the end of 2023 and, contrary to media speculation, will not be leaving the club,’’ Sheens said.

 “Luke is a proud local junior and an extremely talented halfback, who has shown an unquestionable level of commitment to Wests Tigers over a number of years.

“It is clear that he remains an integral part of the long-term plans of Wests Tigers and, in speaking with him, he too is equally focused and passionate on delivering sustained success for the club.
“Wests Tigers have been definitive on this matter and will continue to reiterate this against any untrue speculation,’’ Sheens said.

Not going anywhere: Luke Brooks, left, celebrates a try during the season.

The speculation – from the usual suspects in a particular media organisation – also brought out the Luke Brooks social media trolls. There’s not many of them but they are there from time to time, posting their disgraceful views.

“It is unfair on Luke, his teammates and family, as well as those involved with the club, to raise false conjecture on his future lying away from Wests Tigers when both he and the club are united on delivering success together,’’ Sheens said in the statement.
“I have known Luke for a long time and am continually impressed by the way that he carries himself both on and off the field.

“I look forward to working with him again to give the proud members of this club the performances and results they deserve.”
