Benji was a real game changer and the first X Factor we've had!

I remember Benji after a Tigers/titans game on the Gold Coast.He spent ages signing autographs and posing in photos while the rest of the team waited on the bus. A true club legend. Beau Ryan actually ran onto the bus so he didn't have to deal with fans and Farrah was busy organising his nights entertainment(3 scantly clad young ladies). Benji was the real deal.

If he does pick up a contract I hope it's with a club that will bring out his best. His best is past him but he would really want to finish up on a better note than this year.

Hear Hear!

Marshall brought the magic and the belief for the first time that the young Wests Tigers team had a genuine superstar. I was there for all the highs and all the lows, that Panthers game where he did his shoulder in 2006 was such a sad occasion! I hope the Storm picks you up as I'm sure you can still perform a few more miracles, just not at the expense of our team ;)

from what I saw from Benji in last Dragon v Tigers game and what I saw from Ennis tonight I would rate Benji 3 times better.
