Benji Marshall - Big Game Player

Post by MacDougall » Fri 17 Aug, 2012 10:51 pm

What a myth. He was ordinary in the Grand Final other than one run and pass. He has been ordinary in all our finals matches since. He was ordinary tonight. He is ordinary for NZ every time he pulls the jersey on (except ONCE).

Benji was a passenger tonight. Actually scratch that, he was a speed bump that ruined most of our attacking chances by consistently making the wrong decision. Worst on field by a long way tonight and really needs to re-evaluate his approach to games imo.

Him and Blair cost us big time tonight. Both made mistakes 3-4 times between them while we had good field possession. Very disappointing from senior players

The worst one was when he threw the forward pass to Blair and Blair got crunched. The winger had rushed out of the line up at Beau Ryan and left Koroibete unmarked. Benji loves that floated ball to the winger and if he had have thrown it there we win the game.

Yeah he was bad. His inability to run at the line really limits our options. He really only likes to run when theres a lose ball and players are standing and he just runs to see what happens. But he never runs at the line and attacks it with options each side.

Regardless of decision, we had enough possession to win that game and Benji didn't really offer much, running, passing or kicking

He has been usurped by Barba as the most exciting player in the game and has done nothing to rectify the situation.

Without Farah we have nothing at all tonight.

Robbie should have mailed that field goal, but he was directing everything out there tonight and really got us back in the game.

Marshall's performance by comparison was pathetic.

He has been usurped by more than just Ben Barba.

He was awful, we need a halfback and he needs to go back to 5/8

He is a myth , 90% of his plays are nuffies with poor kicking and passing options and minimal running !

Yep Mac The real Benji would of seen that

I guess the big question is (and I suppose the same has to be asked of Blair as well ) should we stick with them

If they don't aim up in 2013 do we offload them ??

I don't know what is up with him. We know he can destroy a side on his day he just hasn't done it this year.

West Tigers will never cut Benji loose. Benji is worth to much to the club in sponsors and his fan base. The kids all love Benji and with them come merchandise dollars. Although he may loose the next generation if he does'nt stop rationing his magic and pull his finger out.
