What a win !

Post by tiger05 » Sun 12 Jun, 2011 4:19 pm

Seriously how good was it.

How good is Benji despite his stupid kick. I can't remember a tigers player being as good as him ever. I'm close to 40 and I have been supporting them for since I can remember and I don't think there has ever been a player as good as him.
How good was Ayshford ? He isn't the best centre in the game. He is probably not an origin player but geez he was good.
Ellis is like Sirro or maybe better.
Beau Ryan just tries his guts out. Not a gun but I love his effort.

Bring on Storm. I think this will give us the confidence to have a good performance at Leichhardt Oval and get a win against a packed crowd. Wish I could be there. But have to work

I lost my throat. What a comeback. Doesn't excuse the first 60 minutes, but damn it's good to get a win like that.

For a few years there, maybe roughly 2006-2009 I thought while Benji was good he got a lot of unneccessary compliments. But his last year and a half he has been brilliant.

I think its important to remember, he doesnt have the most potent outside backs running off him and he doesnt get the advantage of running behind a huge metre making forward pack and is still dangerous.

His defence has improved out of sight and also i think his work rate. this year hes done a lot of tidy up work people dont notice.

Even today (and numerous times this year , I.E the morris try vs st george) he has chased down someone to keep them scoring closer to the posts and its been very crucial. he did it two times today, like the Johnson try.

The only thing he needs to work on is his short kicking game, way too inconsistant...Farah too.

Benji is unbelievable. His defence was poor at one stage. Now he is solid. As you state he also puts in the extra effort so often it isn't funny. I doubt too many punters see this but it shows how much winning and being the best he can be means to him.

I personally liked last week when he was angry because of the way we were playing. He did it again today. We needed a big effort and he gave it.

spot tiger05 ... would not swap benji for any other player in the game. at some stage all those doubters and knockers ( who know absolutely jack about footy ) of benji will realise just how lucky we are to have him in the tigers line-up.

benji = legend !!
I dislike sowfs immensely

Why is everyone saying we were bad for 60 minutes and only good for 20? I think a lot of you are being a bit too critical of our overall performance. I thought we played quite well in the first half. We were certainly on a par with the Warriors for the first 40 - it was a real arm wrestle. The second half was split 50-50 - their great first 20 and our slightly greater second 20 to get the win :D That's how I saw it anyway.
Sooner or later, next year has to be this year - Ricksen
