Wasn’t this thread about Benji - how did it get to be about Brooks AGAIN??
As for Benji - I have mostly tried to ignore all the inane calls and comments I have read from forumers who wanted him dumped, and rubbish him on a regular basis, continuously calling for an unfit Reynolds to play in his place. The guy is an absolute legend of this game and should be made an immortal when the time comes for what he has contributed to the Rugby League world over many years.
One more thing…playing in the halves is SO dependent upon how your team is getting over the advantage line and winning the ruck, getting quick ptbs, amount of possession you have, as well as the lines and timing of your edge runners, etc, etc. No matter who the half is, if his team is getting hammered in the middle and losing the forward battle it is almost impossible for him to have a standout game.
What I am describing above is pretty much how our halves are asked to perform most weeks. The guys on here that keep blaming Benji and Brooks everytime have a very simplistic view of Rugby League.
