Marshall was brilliant for 70 minutes but the last 10 was ridiculously dreadful.

Why should he not cop a bit of criticism? Everyone else has gotten bagged this year.

I love him more than anyone but you can't defend those plays, they kill us.

N.b I'm not solely blaming him for the loss.

What some on this forum forget is all the plays go to Benji the guy must get tired you seem to forget Farrar was out he takes some of the heat off Benji at times we did not have that option today so get off the guys back . The only thing that should have been in the game plan for Humble to be more involved and not just a link to Benji this guy is good and i hope he keeps the 7. Imight add i have never been a Moltzen fan but he really put in today well done Tim

No, but the coach would bench them INSTANTLY.

This is not the same 3 point play i am talking about, but below video shows ACCOUNTABILITY.



That play was Bynnum was brain dead. There was no logic to it / complete lack of disciple. Watch the coach's reaction.

If they had been doing it for the best part of 10 seasons then yes the coach is to blame.

Once it is the players, twice the player ... 10 years of it it is the coach either not telling them not to do it (which makes him culpable) or not enacting any discipline on them when they do it against his wishes. There are only 2 possibilities and with both of them the buck stops with the coach

Benji is up near the top of the comp for try assists, but occasionally he's just trying too hard, as the last 10 minutes today showed. It's just a shame all of the attack is falling squarely on his shoulders at the moment. Farah would have been handy today, but the lack of first class options at half and fullback are not doing Marshall, or the side any favours.

Benji take some dumb options but when he ran it on the last for Aysford to score rather than take the one we all thought what a great play, than we bag him for trying a 100 to 1 play. You cant have it both ways, lets face without Marshall this team would struggle to get over the 50 mtrs mark let alone try line

Meh normal Marshall really. He played brilliant for 70 minutes, he finally had a halfback which enabled him to play 2 off the ruck and it looked great, he got us in a position to win the game and then got us into a position to lose it.

The same reason he tried the short drop out and it came off and had everyone applauding is the same reason he had that brain fart at the end. Cant blame the coach that's the way he has ALWAYS played the game.

Sometimes I wonder what games people are watching, Marshall has a lot of brilliance but unfortunately it is currently being overshadowed by costly errors and decision making. Running the ball on the first tackle, sideways to Ryan with no were to go, was not the play that was needed with only minutes left in the game. Unfortunately we don't have a halfback to take matters out of Marshall's hands. C'mon Benji, think mate!

Benji's just find ways to lose.

If this was basketball, Benji would be a guy who takes a 3 point shot when you are up 1 with 6 seconds to play instead of simply taking the foul and shooting free throws. His decisions just don't make sense.

That analogy makes no sense at all
It makes perfect sense and it is also true....

The way it's looking, benji will finish his career with 1 title. With his talent that will be a huge underachievement . I think we get frustrated that he will always go for the trickshot when a steady head will suffice.Our window is closing fast.

I really don't think it matters who we have at halfback. We could have Cronk or Thurston and it wouldn't change a thing. Benji always demands the ball.Most of the time it seems that everyone in the team is on a game plan except Benji, he makes it up as he goes along and it looks like he has been given free reign to do so by Sheens. Must be difficult for a halfback to know his place and roll in our side. Alot of the time Benji's ad lib style pays off for us, I think it' s because there's no way the opposiion is going to know what he's doing if his own team mates don't. Benji didn't cost us the game today, it was our discipline that did.

Everyone keep your chins up, we played well today. Robbie's back and we have plenty of games to go.

To anyone who thinks Benji cost us todays game pull your head in!!!!....Benji has setup all most of our trys this year...including all of todays!!!...Had the D held out the Rabbitohs in the last 5 minutes NO ONE would be talking about going for the try when Ryan went out into touch...How about how easy it was for Issac Luke to stroll 10 meters under the posts!?!...and how slow is Lote turning around chasing a kick...?!?!!...we should be blaming these guys for todays loss not Benji!!

He's an attacking footballer, its not in his nature to do otherwise.

We were 10-4 up with 11 to go and just before Ayshfords try, Benji was in a perfect position to slot a field goal and put us 7 points clear.....he didnt, why is no one complaining about that?
Because a try eventuated from it....sometime they do, sometimes they dont.
There is no difference except the amount of time till fulltime in that situation.

They still wouldve beat us, 7 up, 13 up it dont matter because we wouldve stopped playing like we did when we got to 12 up.....its always easy in hindsight

Where were you in the early years of the Wests Tigers ?

STT is right .... We have got it good.
All teams go through a rough patch once in a while.
