Biography:

A local junior of Wests Tigers, Luke Brooks made his first-grade debut as an 18-year-old with a stunning win against the St. George-Illawarra Dragons at the Sydney Cricket Ground in 2013. Salary cap restraints prevented the Holy Cross Rhinos junior from playing any further games that year; instead featuring for the club's Holden Cup side where he was named at halfback in the 2013 NYC Team of the Year.

Brooks became the starting halfback for Wests Tigers in 2014, playing 21 matches and chalking up six tries and 12 try assists. He was named the 2014 Dally M Rookie of the Year, earning him selection in the 2015 NRL All Stars match on the Gold Coast.

He remains the youngest player ever to have featured in the All Stars game.

Brooks continued his development in 2015 with 10 tries and 16 try assists, before taking up a one-year extension with Wests Tigers in 2016.

The following year, Brooks would sign a two-year agreement with Wests Tigers that saw him remain with his boyhood club, but only played 17 games due to a number of niggling injuries — his lowest total of games played in a season since debuting.

In 2018, Brooks produced his finest season since debuting with improved totals in kick metres, forced dropouts, try assists, offloads, run metres and tackle breaks. He ended the year as one of two players to feature in every game of the season for Wests Tigers — the first time the halfback had achieved this feat in his career — and was named both the club's Player of the Year and Players' Player of the Year.

Brooks would cap off his superb season by taking out the Dally M Halfback of the Year Award — finishing just two points behind eventual winner Roger Tuivasa-Sheck. The 24-year-old became just the second player in history to win both the Rookie and Halfback of the Year Awards in his career, and the fifth Wests Tigers player to finish top three in overall voting.

Brooks became the first Wests Tigers halfback to play 100 first-grade games for the club in 2018, and is also the club's all-time leading try-scorer at halfback, having scored 31 tries from his 107 appearances to date.

Brooks is signed through at Wests Tigers until the end of the 2019 season.
