Re: The Benji 2018 Poll

I was happy when he left, but he seems to have grown as a person since there. It's obvious Cleary is not going to let kids run the team like JT did.

Benji had his kicking game issues in his younger days, but he improved and hopefully he'll be able to help Brooks along.

Nice to have someone of his calibre to step in to the halves if needed - hell of a lot better than littlejohn.

So so so happy, good to have him back home!

He'll bring a lot to this footy club!

Is it a 1 or 2 year deal?

I love the fact he is coming back but some of the calls stating he should be in our 17 is concerning. Will be great for team morale and nurturing the halves but if he is playing first grade, we aren't making the 8 in my opinion.

I'm excited because Marshall is a fine footballer and a very decent man. His nurturing of Brooks and Lolohea will be the making of them. I see a lot of Marshall in Lolohea.

Very happy with this signing! Benji and gamble as our halves depth! How can that possibly be a bad thing considering it's pretty much just JLJ at the moment?

Everyone would have been against it in the past as it would have been a starting berth, but as backup, he's a great purchase. Solid value for money and much needed spirit to add to the team.

We also lost all our star marketing power with Ted and woods leaving. Probably a lot of our team identity too. This is such a great low value spend to keep the sponsors and kids excited.

Will be a great mentor but more importantly he is a massive upgrade on JLJ.
