I'd seriously consider him as an option at fullback.

I think it's great, at the very least it puts genuine pressure on Brooks. Welcome home Benji.

Bit odd that Pascoe was quoted confirming the signing in the newspaper before a press release.

Welcome home Benji Son. Been surely missed by many Tigers fans. Has anyone remembered that Ivan has now bought Bennetts Qld cup half and 5/8. Tyson Gamble and now benji. Great depth signings. I think the likes of bennett and belamy will be keeping a close eye on any move Ivan is making. I'm feeling Ivan is the next super coach. Benji in our colours again, I'm loving it.

Farah can jog on. Marshall at least gives us a bit of depth in the halves.

I wouldn't mind heighno coming home. Was my fav WT player all heart. Would be good depth signing and atleast he and Benji could retire at home. We all love them for their heroics in '05.

I dont know what to think tbh ...
Will he be playing the odd cameo appearance like he does for the Broncos or Will he be in the starting side each week ?

Marshall won't be putting pressure on Brooks.

Gamble will be putting pressure on Marshall and Reynolds.

Reynolds to 9 anyone
No from me - we have Liddle (a much better 9 than Reynolds).

People are talking about where is he going to play. Am I the only one who thinks he could end up being the first person in the halves picked??? Reynolds and Brooks are hardly setting the world on fire.
Exactly. I think on form he might be the best half that we have.

It didn't take much to drag our mentality back to the low expectaction level again. Here I was thinking that next year we will have a team of goers and a solid pack of forwards to boot, now everyone is wanting Farah and Heighno back too. Hodgo as assistant coach, it's all coming together. Fitzhenry is the missing piece of the puzzle.

We certainly are a weird mob

He will be our 14...who will play 9, or anywhere in the back-line as needed....Nice fairy tale ending for Bunji and the club, just hope we haven't wasted too much $$$ and a spot in our 30 to cater for this.,

Welcome home my favourite player of all time.
I haven't been this emotional for a long time.
I'm so happy about this, I will re buy my 4 seasons tickets without thinking about it now.
