I noticed his kicking style is different, the ball seems to curve (not as much as JT), it's almost as if he strikes the ball a little more with the outside of his foot...

He struck the ball beautifully tonight and everything looked to go straight over the black dot. His general kicking was also good tonight.

Benji hits 7/7 when we win big, the problem is he hits 1/4 when the other mob scores 4 tries.

yeah it was and they were mostly going right over the black dot too, getting some help from the All Blacks seems to have helped quite a bit

Not only was his goal kicking accurate but his long range kicks in play were extra well placed as he often caught Matt Bowen out of position, making Bowen run to the ball,thus allowing the defence to get up on the Cowboys fast and keep them pinned in their lower half,making it hard for the Cowboys to to attack from way back in Cowboys territory.I was at the game and I noticed the WT team warmed up for at least 20 minutes prior to game start,were still warming up almost to the start of the game.WT looked like a side committed to win.It was good for us WT supporters up here to see the side in person.

Yeah! Hope he gets a lot more chances to improve his percentage. Definitely a positive.
