I just want to congratulate Benji on reaching 300 games and thank him for his services to our club.
It has been a roller coaster of ride as fan watching and cheering him on.
He’s shown the good, the bad and the ugly over the years, but without doubt he is the most skillfull player I have seen play the game and am so grateful he is a Tigers through and through.
The joy, the heartache, the frustration is all part and parcel of being a fan and I feel like i’ve been taken on one hell of a ride watching Benji over the years.
Win, lose or draw this weekend, make the finals or crash out this year, whatever the case, I know Benji has given his all for the Wests Tigers and it has been an absolute pleasure to have him play for the Tigers.
Well done Benji, you should be so proud of your achievements and you are an ornament to the game and will be spoken of fondly for as long as the game of rugby league is played.
Probably an good opportunity to post some memories too.
I’ll go outside the square a bit and skip the skillful plays and moments of class and just throw out there
The shoulder injuries - man I felt his pain and the personal hurt of losing a player through serious injury, again and again and again…
Also want to note the emotion he’s not afraid or ashamed to show
We seen him with the NZ anthem a couple of weeks ago, but I’ll never forget the tears he shed on the field for Robbie after Robbie’s mum passed away.
