Can't wait till both hit top form because they will be unstoppable. Thats about as slick as Benji has ever been for a round 1 match. Robbie was solid but could work on his kicking. For round 1 I'm very happy with the way they are going.

Agreed and a good winger would have scored.
I totally agree. He still has a good kicking game in him but he mixes it up with dud kicks.

It is like he has taken over the inconsistency tag from Benji and Benji is now consistent.

I'm not trolling and you have basically agreed with me. Benji now plays consistently good games and carries us. Robbie is more like a good player but not a superstar.

It has been like this for a while as well.

I hear the stats argument all the time but simply he is not a gun player anymore. Ennis and Farah are close and I don't think Ennis is a gun player at all.

Benji on the other hand has gone from all flash to the best player (or one of the top 5 at worst) in the game. Farah has gone from the best player (or one of the top 5 at worst) to maybe the 2nd best hooker in NSW - and this is obvious to the SOO selectors.

Will Motzen turn into our 2nd star ? At the moment it looks more likely.

I hope this year Farah turns it around but again tonight he came up with the SOO passes. His defence is still good but geez he has gone down a notch.

Has he lost some pace ? Has his passing game suddenly become inconsistent ? I am struggling to see why this has happened.

Okay, does anyone seriously buy to this?

So your bemoaning the fact that Benji is now as good as Farah??? What a blight on our team! Farah is a Superstar - Darren Senter was a "good" player. The difference is chalk cheese. Benji carrying us??? Nope, there were lots of guys contributing in attack tonight Benji, Farah, Moltz, Luis, Fulton, Lawrence and Tuquiri to name a few. That's the way it was and how it should be. Not sure what game you were watching.

I am bewildered. Robbie is a demon and always has been. Tonight was no exception.

Back in your box Benji!! A week ago you said you were going to play conservative this season, give it up mate, you haven't got it in you. :lol:

How was it when he tiptoed the sideline around Brett Stewart before the final try, I nearly had a heart attack!!

Benji, Robbie & Moltzen were sublime when the clicked.

I think Robbie had a good game. He was outstanding and at his best. To compare form is a little harsh. He is the skipper and benji his vice.

Benji is more conistent and didn't have any Benji moments from memory. He has matured as a player and person.

Something happened to Benji mid way through last year. He is now playing better than he did in 2005. Perhaps not as brilliant but far more controlled.

No, he makes to many mistakes , Robbies the best selection for captain
I just think Robbies a bit out of form
he isnt playing to bad
A bit out of form for the past two years - now the 3rd year.

As for Benji it has got to the stage where it isn't even close - minimal errors (again none tonight) / solid defence and consistent big plays.

have you forgotten how close farah has gotten to dally m the past few years?
and how benji hasn't even been close
He who is not everyday conquering some fear has not learnt the secret of life.

Right at the end there Benji did a move i thought that was impossible, along the sideline, and he almost scored. Nobody else in the game would of even attempted it. Wouldn't trade hime for the world. They were both great tonight.

Yeah no doubt, I think the OP is doing what the guy in his avatar is.
