Spot on! He looks a real prospect, especially as he seemsto have that confident cheekiness that good halves MUST have.

I agree and said this last week. There is just something about him and would love to seem him start the game at 7!

He certainly seems to have that something. With Daniella's injury you'd have to think he has a good chance of starting at 7 against the Titans with Moltzen moving to the centres.
Love the way he got under Sando's skin. loved it!!!
Throw him in against a frustrated Princey and see how he goes.

Only early days yet but like the look of him . Do we have another centre option maybe the free running Dwyer I thought he was pretty good tonite and leave Miller on bench for the moment for confidence .

Geez what a predicament 3 quality halfbacks, Moltz the tried and tested = winner, Lui the rising star = winner, Miller the new kid on the block = winner, Ask me, It;s a win win win situation, It all adds up to one giant headspin for Shifty Sheens, PS for all you Sheens bashers out there Great game plan tonight I thought.

Yah love this kid. Deserves a start after what we've seen in first grade of him so far.

So confident and fearless, love that.

Lui, Moltz and now Miller... going to be a sad day seeing one or two of them leave.

Said this on roarcast and in posts earlier in the year after the trials: this guy looks so comfortable in the top grade. Solid D, good kick and smart brains!


kudos to Geo for pointing him out early last year!

Agreed... This is my reasoning why he should of been starting. He hasnt been around the squad too long as a junior so he doesnt see Benji as the Messiah. Add that to the fact he is younger than most 7's who get thier first run in NRL, he is still too stupid to realise how dangerous guys like Burgess are and doesnt have any fear yet...

Give him 1 or 2 more games while Lui is injured, but I do hope Sheens doesnt play him too much at this stage. While his footy brain is going great, his body still needs to mature.

I would like to see Miller start at 7. But i dont want to put Moltz back to the bench so its hard. McKinnon had his best game for us, so we cant move Moltzen to fullback (just yet), and he just simply isnt an NRL centre. Tough call to be made.

I'm not sold on him yet - it was 15 minutes in the top grade.

Looks to have plenty of potential, not going to go crazy about him yet thought, he still has a lot of development ahead of him.

Great potential who showed great skill - was even talking up on the field....but remember he came on when we had the Rabbitohs on the ropes and they were playing panic football.
Sheens needs to continue to develop this kid so he fits into the Tigers team or he will get snapped up by someone else in the next few years.

Tough & fast & skilled, he`s a super talent. How to fit him in our first grade side is the question?

The conundrum the WT have is Lui is a super talent and only 21...I cant see Miller taking over from a fit Lui in the halves...so he will get snapped up...no doubt...he aint gonna stay in the NSW CUP waiting for Lui to retire or move on....so on balance I'd rather have Lui as Benji's partner...you realise how good Lui is when he's not playing.

I knew this kid was good, & i was talking to two blokes from mascot juniors who said this kid has had this potential for a couple of years & souths new about him & didnt bother chasing him. there loss our gain.
