I reckon Benji must be some sort of great housemate, because since Tim Moltzen and TnT have moved into his digs at Sunny Breakfast Point, both Tim’s and Taniela’s games has improved tenfold. I am very biased on the area as I live in sunny Cabarita , a five minute walk from the Palace Hotel , where the lads can be seen enjoying a very quiet drink while Benji has a slap on the Pokies.
I posted years ago when Scottie Prince was itching to get back to Qld that the Club just should set him and his wife up in a great townhouse on the water at Cape Cabarita and after his wife spent a week overlooking France’s Bay, all thoughts of going back to Qld would have been erased from her memory. Scottie would have been signed up for thress years partnering Benji and Robbie, and the joy we are having now , could have been happening for years.
I been having this thought for months now, that a relaxed and sweet homelife is the main reason why Tim, Benji and TnT have been shining bright this year, but it was confirmed , when I read this quote from the following article in today’s daily Tele……
Tuiaki’s try-fest reaches record proportions
By Nick Walshaw HIS mouth carries more gold than most old Tigers earned in a lifetime. And now cult winger Taniela Tuiakiis an outside chance of breaking one of his club’s longest-standing records as Wests Tigers charge towards the 2009 NRL playoffs.
Tuiaki is just eight tries from owning the mark for most tries in any season in Wests Tigers, Balmain or Western Suburbs history.
But please don’t ask the man himself, who crossed the stripe another three times against Cronulla yesterday, to talk about Balmain winger Bobby Lulham and those 28 tries he scored way back in 1947.
“Ahhhh … to be honest I haven’t even thought about anything like that,” the shy New Zealander says, flashing those bling fangs. “Although one of the guys who works in the Tigers office came and told me the other day that I was a couple of tries from breaking a club record. So, yeah … I’m happy for that.”
This is about as animated as Tuiaki gets without a Steeden in hand. <big>He keeps his sentences short. Says he owes housemates Benji Marshall and Tim Moltzen plenty.</big> Shyly shrugs off claims he’s something of a Wests Tigers jokester, with “I think the boys laugh at me more than they laugh with me”.
Like at Toyota Park yesterday when the towering Kiwi closed in on, equalled, then passed the Wests Tigers record for most tries in a season. That mark was held by 2005 premiership winger Pat Richards.
Incredibly, the North Curl Curl junior needs only to cross the stripe twice more to snare Daniel Fitzhenry’s club record of 43 tries. “And Fitzy took 119 games to get there,” a Tigers staffer said. “Taniela has played 77.”
Tuiaki concedes his omission from the New Zealand World Cup team and 2009 Anzac Test have been a motivator. “That hurts, knocked my confidence around a bit,” he says. “But what can you do? You’ve gotta keep playing good footy … keep scoring tries.”
Being so close to Concord Headquarters and the great and relaxed lifestyle that Cabarita and Breakfast Point brings, suggests to me that we should get RoseCorp ( Breakfast Point and Cape Cabarita Property delevopers) as our Major Sponsors next year and set up the rest of the team digs there…could you imagine how the team would preform in the coming years.
