I thought we all were agreed first time round that Benji was a 6 , not a 7
Nobody asked me
OK we can ask you now

Before Benji left , did you prefer him at 6 or 7 ??

Some people forget how good he was, in any position.

Benji is not a halfback.

More preseason propaganda. Its all about getting positive spin out to the masses. I am sure Benji is putting in, but every year its the same stories, nut the names are changed
Last year it was all about Idris training the house down,
I wouldn’t mind seeing Benjii and Brooks togerther , providing that Brooks lifts his game.
I f Reynolds isn’t the saviour that some think he is, I hope he isn’t giventoo long there just because he’s our main signing

Just how do you determine that?
His own form...team results?
How long is long enough?

I know you're not asking me, but on the last point if we are 2 or 3 from 6 then we are on track to improve in a big way given our draw. Unless we are 0 or 1 from 6 then I'd say "change nothing".

With this in mind I think Benji's best chance to make an impact on our season is as the bench utility for the period of Liddle's injury. If he doesn't get this role then surely he is waiting for injury or catastrophicly bad form.

Everything is subjective isn't it. I can't answer your questions but I think we need to win games and if we aren't players that aren't performing will need to be replaced. Hopefully we now have the depth to do that.

Benji is there for when Reynolds and Brooks get selected for SOO.

About as plausible as any other option this time of year. :D

My 2c no6 back then. Now either 6,7 or 9 in parts.

There's merit to Watto's idea.

I don't think Liddle is ready yet and Macca is just a tackling machine. Grub defends well in the middle, can run the ball and can kick in play.

Whether that's what Cleary does remains to be seen.

Apart from the last time Reynolds spent any decent time at 9 was Under 8's...
Didn't realised he debuted for Canterbury at the age of 7. What a prodigy.

One thing that will be for sure come round 1 is that Reynolds and Brooks will be the halves combo. So where does that leave Benji, I'd say it would be in reserve grade. He was running around up here for Redcliffe until he got his opportunity with the Bronx.
Another thing I don't really want Benji on the bench either, couldn't think of anything worse he defending in the centre. I think if Liddle isn't right for rd1 it will be Taylor and McIIrick for mine. Maybe with Macca starting.
Well its nearly time to have a 'CRACK'....Go you :sign:
