I dont know how this 'Bug' character gets away with criticising Sheens..First he names a team with numerous players out of position including Benji at centre and now he wants us to completley change our bench every week. IMO the bench showed potential, players like Cayless and Moors will improve by being tested against the best. Rookies may have all the potential in the world but they lack the experience and can ake crucial mistakes when they first come into grade...apart from the truly special ones, they need to be nursed into first grade not chucked intot he deep end.

Look Scene, I name players in position buddy, Benji in the Centres can still be 2 receiver. He can receive the ball whenever he wants, it just gives him more space. It also give Lui a chance to play 5/8.

But that is what a forum is for, it is for discussion. Players like Cayless and Moors will improve, I agree. But players like Gower, Mataka and Fifita should be given a crack as well.

I have no doubt, once injuries set in that they will all get a good go. But Daniella or Brown?? I mean really ???
Corey Norman killed them for the Bronco's and how old is he?? 17-18??.

Rhys Pritchard in 23 years old mate. He is a GUN. He has more talent in him than any of the nlokes the Fonz is considering. Do you agree?

Biggest problem playing Benji at Centre would be the defensive like Bug

Benji showed no defensive lapses last Monday night tackling blokes 20-30kgs heavier than himself..

Yes but that was defending with Lawrence inside him.

A Centres defensive work rate is higher and more difficult than a halves. Why drain him when it is not needed? He relishes in the role of chief playmaker

He can be chief playmaker.

The other night against Manly, Moltzen slotted into the halves, Lui was one wider than him and Benji was one wider than him.

We then carved up.

Not true Moltzen was playing second reciever on the right.....Benji on the left like always....Farah and Lui where the link men...

Benji only came to the right once and nearly split them

Thought this was about the bench....

What's the difference between a 5/8th and a second receiver BuG.....

I mean if Lui is playing 5/8th on the left and Benji in the centres...where is Lawrence?
Wests Tigers don't need a Coach.. The playing group has taken over..

Alfie may have tripped in your opinion but unfortunately, the only opinion that counted at the time was the referee, match review committee and the governing body. They deemed Alfie's tackling style legal and that's the opinion that counts.

Geo that would only be from a play the ball from near the right hand touchline mate. Tha is what I mean. When you are playing centre a side it is a different kettle of fish.

Just because his hands were also on them it doesn't mean it isn't tripping. I'm surprised they let him get away with it over and over again.
