Luke Brooks fined for ugly knee on Sea Eagle
Luke Brooks has been fined followed the Wests Tigers loss to the Manly Warringah Sea Eagles.
The Tigers halfback was reported by referee Gerard Sutton just eight minutes into the match.
Brooks had sparked a scuffle between the two teams after planting his knee into Jack Gosiewski’s face as he got up following a tackle.
The 24-year-old has been offered a $1350 fine for “contrary conduct” if he takes an early plea.
Fox League commentator Brett Finch slammed Brooks over the act.
“Back when we played, you’d get squared up there as a halfback,” Finch said.
“You can not get away with putting your knee in a second-rower’s face. That’s rubbish.”
