It appears new Wests Tigers coach Ivan Cleary is already having an affect on the club, with reports fullback Luke Brooks has agreed to a two-year contract extension.
Brooks is one of the NRL club’s four key off-contract players.
Fairfax Media claims the 22-year-old has been been offered close to $550,000 a year – some $50,000 less than he was believed to be asking.

It comes just two days after Cleary took over as coach of the club following the sacking of Jason Taylor.
Cleary said securing his off-contract players was going to be one of his main focuses and he looks to re-build the team, who currently sit at the bottom of the NRL ladder and are second favourite with bookmakers to take home the wooden spoon.
The Wests Tigers are yet to confirm the Brooks deal.
Captain Aaron Woods, James Tedesco and five-eighth Mitchell Moses are the other three stars who are yet to reaffirm their commitment to the club.
