Benjis defensive determination was a highlight.

Only just bested on the night by the crowd giving it to Crocker on his way off the field. Crocker stops, looks up at the crowd, smiles and gives the thumbs up. Loved it

Benji's defense has improved so much over the last 18 months or so.

Dave Taylor is a waste of space who hides at centre all day. He is overrated and lazy, sums up Souffs really.

Yeah what are the odds that Lang gets punted soon, having all his key forwards off at one time just did not make sense.

He did the same thing when he was at penrith Muffstar.
And the amount of changes made, they had 2 changes left for the final 20.
They should consider themselves lucky we didnt put more on them

I agree. This is the second time we have missed out on the chance to blow teams off the park. I was waiting for a 3 tries in last ten minutes against Raiders, but Lawrence and Tuqiri injuries didn't help. Against the Warriors, we kinda had a chance, but silly errors costed us. Then, this time we kinda wanted to get the game over and done with and avoid injuries I think.

Waiting for a 50 points pwnage!!!

A Win is a win seeing we were being written off by so many on and off the forum we should not be complaining

Benji -v- Big dave Taylor
david v goliath
was great to watch.
at times looked like a rodeo where to cowboy attempts to grab the steer by horns and get him to the ground.

The tackle where Taylor was most likely in for all money and threw that panic pass got me pumped! The determination he showed in that chase was unbelievable...

Benji > God
I hate South Sydney.... immensely

Benji's defence has been good all year - in fact he is one of the better defenders in the backline these days. It's amazing that a negative has become a positive.

I also think Taylor looked up and saw Utai on the tryline. There is no way Utai would have let Taylor get the ball down as well. It was a catch 22 - If Taylor had have straightened up, Utai and Marshall would have bundled his fat arse into touch.... would have pumped the boys up even further!

Heck, Beau Ryan would have ran on the park from the Stands and been the first one there to high five them!! :shock:

ok, maybe too far.
