KNIGHTS SET TO SIGN PEARCE REPLACEMENT

Wests Tigers halfback Luke Brooks is reportedly on the cusp of signing with the Knights as Mitchell Pearce’s replacement.

Brooks has been linked to Newcastle since Pearce dropped the bombshell last month that he wants to immediately join Super League side Catalans.

The Knights believe he is a suitable replacement at No.7 and Brooks shares the same management as Newcastle coach Adam O’Brien.

Brooks still has two years to run on his current Tigers contract that takes him through until the end of the 2023 season.

Channel 7s Michelle Bishop revealed on SEN radio that Brooks is likely on the move as Tigers recruits Jackson Hastings and Oliver Gildart arrive from England.

“There’s definitely movement at the Tigers, the statement the Tigers released a week or so ago about Luke Brooks staying put,” Bishop said on SEN’s Breakfast with Vossy.
