NRL: Maguire salutes Brooks after Souths win

Wests Tigers pulled off another thrilling one-point victory against South Sydney on Saturday with Luke Brooks kicking a last-minute field-goal to seal the 23-22 win.

The Tigers have now won two on the bounce, both by a point, to keep alive hopes they could make the eight in the 2022 NRL campaign.

Brooks the hero

Last week it was Jackson Hastings who kicked the late winner against the Parramatta Eels and this time it was the turn of fellow half Brooks.

Brooks has come in for some heavy criticism this season but put in another fine performance to help see off the Rabbitohs, much to the delight of coach Michael Maguire.

"(Life) is a lot better than it was two or three weeks ago," Maguire told reporters after the gane. "Luke Brooks has gone through a fair bit in his career.

"What a special moment it was for him to kick the field goal. He has been challenged as long as I have been here."

Rabbitohs not happy

Meanwhile Rabbitohs coach Jason Demetriou was far from happy with his players and says that silly errors are costing them big time.

Souths sit in eighth place on the ladder following a 3-4 start to the campaign.

"We've not giving ourselves a chance," Demetriou said. "Every loss this year I've come in and said the same thing: we're under 70 per cent completions, 16 errors and a lot of them in the back of the field. It's not good enough."
