Exactly what a cronulla supporter sitting in front of me asked, "mate is he still injured, he's done nothing all night" !!
Exactly what the CH9 commentators said.
He should not have played because he was still injured but somehow he must have convinced Potter that he was o.k. to play a full game. Why didn't Potter pull Benji off during the match? All it takes is bit of courage and mental strength from Potter.

Robbie must be thinking to himself, " these guys promise so much,( eg Blair & Marshall) and deliver so little". :brick:

ask yourself this: if you bought these two as a product, ( Marshall & Blair) would you be returning them and asking for your money to be returned.

Yup

All the BS about the forwards, being hurt. It doesn't cut it and isnt supported by the stats (though there is more to a game then stats)

His co-workers on Nine will never do anything but make excuses for him though

No.
Are you sure about that Ink? If there is a loop hole I wouldnt blame Robbie for exploring it.

I don't know if it is still the case but the NRL used to have date that they wouldn't accept contract until. I'm not talking about the June 30 anti tampering deadline that they abolished. This was different, and is what Luke Lewis used to wriggle his way out of the contract he had with Souths many years ago.

Thats it, the current club has the last right of reply so once they get a contract signed it ends there.

What did Fult do to escape criticism. He is a protected species by some of you. Most ineffective player in the game.

Does anyone have an opinion on why Robbie stopped giving Benji the ball in the last 10-15 mins? Potter instructions? Benji injury? Robbie had had enough of the talk?

Dunno to be honest snowleopard, I tried to have a look at farah's body language in the presser when they asked potter about benji's form. He didn't seem to give too much away, not like with the whole Miller thing. I was pretty sure he didn't like Jacob after either the parra or panthers game presser.

Also, i know that both are tight friends shown by Benji's emotions at leichardt after robbie's mum's death. Doesn't really add up, unless Benji has changed recently or he's done something to piss everyone off??

Very weird stuff going on right now at Concord.

Yep..something is going on...I was looking at Benji's face during that period of time and he was looking non plussed as to why Robbie was avoiding him like the plague.

I think it is really bad. You have to give Benji the ball in those situations. Continually going away from him isn't going to work for the team at all.

Robbie at the moment is 100 times the player Benji is but you need to give Benji the ball at the right moment.

benji isnt in the league of lewis and johns... the longer his career progresses, the further the gap is getting.
I am a Benji fanatic but even I have to agree here.

Benji doesn't have to do everything in these games. But to do nothing?
Even for me it is just really disappointing and saddening.

Don''t think so ,remember reading a story in RLW that Elford firstly spent half the GF victory night begging Sheens to let him change his mind , and then did the same with Richo (well I think it was Richo :crazy ,getting old can't quite remember )over at Souths to release him from his contract
