Marshall is not a FG halfback

😆 I laugh at you people. You know who you are.

Just thought I would start the thread that was on the old forum after almost every match despite Benji having solid games and displaying qualities that indicate he will be a star in the 7 jersey. Today he played with 6 on his back but played no different in style to every other game this year.

Agreed……and with a super quick wimger on his right side he will be racking up plenty more try assists.

i have no idea what beau ryan was doing playin 15 metres in field ad 10 metres behind everyone else, he should be dropped

So if it makes no difference what number he has on his back, why change it. He clearly gets a hell of a lot of media scrutiny in the 7 jersey and it clearly affects him. If Benji feels more confident in the 6, I say leave him.

Off-field scrutiny is higher yet on-field success is similar. No coincidence.

Benji doesn’t have a position who cares….geez he annoyed me today…Nice goal kicking Benj

Moltzen cements his spot…Listening TIM…

Maybe, maybe not. I personally think he looks much more relaxed and I think it shows in his game. Everyone will be divided on this point but as long as the tigers are winning I don’t care if he plays state cup.

ok,

but he is playing with a real halfback in the halves (and at halfback infact) so its making his job a whole lot easier.

Kapish ??

Sure mate. No arguments from me. I’m actually repeating something Benji himself had to say about wearing the 6 as opposed to the 7 so go whinge at him. Kapish??

Same as the Souths game. Beside’s Robbie, he’s by far our best 7, and Moltzen looks to be our best 6.

He is a class five eight. All he needs is a no nonsense halfback inside him who can beat the inside defenders and prvide him with some decent ball in space like happened today. Benji needs room to move and use his speed.

However…

What do we do with Robert Lui? He still qualifies for NYC next year … but he is definitely ready for FG now IMO.

Do we use him next year off the bench? Give him 20mins a game to blood him? Or will that just stunt his growth? He’s too good a player to not promote him or give him the respect he deserves.

Its just good to see him without all the pressure of feeling he has to create everything. Playing a lot more freely.

Are u saying Benji is playing with a real halfback in Moltzen? Wrong. Moltzen has worn the number 7 twice, but played 7 zero times. FACT. Benji has still been our 7 the last 2 weeks, even Sheens said that in todays paper.

I disagree……IMO his defense isnt Toyota Cup standard let alone first grade.

Moltzen and Bunji are going very nicely.
