Luke Brooks Set to Join Bulldogs in 2018

The Canterbury Bulldogs are believed to have tabled a offer to Luke Brooks that could see him land in Belmore in 2018.

Brooks, 22, may fall victim of the joint-venture’s tight salary cap restrictions, with the Club putting higher priorities on the signatures of James Tedesco, Mitchell Moses and Captain Aaron Woods.

Brooks has not quite lived up to his hype, where he was touted as the next Andrew Johns, but a move to Belmore under coach Des Hasler could release his full potential.

Brooks is currently signed with the West Tigers until the end of the 2017 season and Bulldogs Coach Des Hasler sees Brooks as his man partner Josh Reynolds, with Moses Mbye making the switch to hooker or more of a utility role.

It is believed the recent troubles at the Tigers has Brooks re-assessing his options and it is understood that a move could be in his best interest.

Brooks has made 66 appearances for the Tigers, scoring 22 tries, since making his debut against the Dragons in round 24 of the 2013 season.
