He has been this season and I suspect he will be a much better player than Robbie over the course of his career but only time will tell.

I'd love to see Robbie get his best form back and for Marshall to continue to improve.

I'd love to see how Farah could perform if he had Keith Galloway and Jeff Lima clearing the way for him and forcing quick play the balls...

we are so used to farah absolutely destroying teams that when he has a quiet game or 2 it looks like he is down or out of form when in actual fact he is still playing well. there may be a game where he does not turn it on in attack but will make 40+ tackles. the only negative points are the couple of times he tried to go for a 40/20 n kicked out on the full. if those plays come off, he's a genius, if not then he gets label being out of form.
the refs this year have turned a blind eye on his dummy half scoots. at times it is so frustrating to watch coz he catches defenders off side time n time again yet gets no reward for it.
one other important factor to consider is that he has a back operation and maybe towards the end of a long season it took its toll on him.
benji is a freak. they label watmough, hayne n co freaks (and they are excellent players) but benji showed what they can do, he can do better. i wouldnt swap benji or farah for anyone.
what has been shown in the past though is we struggle without farah more than without benji.
either way i love em both.
2010 is a massive year 4 us and the sooner it comes around the better.

Absolutely, and then we'd have Benji, Moltz or Taumata running second phase plays off Farahs scoots

With Arana at half it will elad to benji getting back to 05 best form again as he will have a gifted half with him if he keeps his head on. Now if the Tigs can snare Cayless And Lima somehow then theres a forward pack that could do alot of damage to everyone.... and with Farah well if Tab offer anything over $10 id put 100 on it cause it could be "THAT" Year again

Are you happy with anything about the Tigers mate?

So what he's a better organizer... Marshall is still 10 times the player.

Matty Head is a better organiser then them all... where's he?
