He has already showed that he can excel in a less significant bench role while playing for the Broncos last season.

RE: Lolohea at fullback 2018
What if this is Lolohea’s full fitness…?
Just because you are carrying some extra weight it doesn’t mean you aren’t fit when it comes to your sport. I don’t think his fitness is the problem.
I think we need Lolohea to turn into a really really good player at fullback next year. We are going to lose a lot with Tedesco leaving. I think Tui has the ability to be great next year but he is going to have to do a lot of work on his game.
We will have to wait and see if he is up to it. There is a difference between looking really sharp and skillful which he does and being a quality first grade fullback on a consistent basis.
I think its safe to say his fitness would improve if he were in better shape. There is a reason that no other fullback in the comp is carry as many extra KG’s as he is…
RE: Benji proved why..
37m, 4 tackles, 5 missed tackles for 63 mins.
He came on, his first touch was great and then he disappeared amongst the chaos. He should be in NSW cup with that useless thief Blair.
You can’t just look at the basic stats mate as Benji’s game is clearly not based around that. He provided good passing and created opportunities for the players around him alot more then Liam Fulton was able to do. Obviously not a knock on Fulton though as he is a great BACKROWER.
Benji proved why..
Potters choice to put him on the bench was disgraceful as far as I’m concerned. I agree without a doubt that Benji has been rather quiet during games this year but to be replaced by Liam Fulton is completely asinine. Obviously the team is struggling as a whole but to put the brunt on blame is Benji by sitting him down shows a lack of respect from Potter in my opinion. I thought Marshall showed good energy tonight, took the line on, threw some good balls and showed that along with Farah he is the centre of attack.
If theres anyone that needs to be sat on the bench it is Adam Blair who shows a complete lack of interest and effort. While guys like Benji and Koro have stuggled at times this year with different parts of the game you cannot question their passion and efforts. How is Benji meant to perform anyone near his peak with a pathetic forward pack that is getting constantly trampled by even backs. Not to mention the fact that Sironen is clearly not a halfback which puts so much unnecessary responsibilty on the back of Marshall. Its no mystery as to why Benji’s greatest years have come when he had a decent halfback (Prince and Lui). As for Woods despite what some have said on this forum I still think he will make the NSW squad without a shadow of a doubt.
There is no way that I will ever be attending a game in which Benji is starting on the bench out of principal and if he does end up leaving the club because of Mick Potter I will stop supporting Rugby League and the Tigers in particular until Mick recieves the sack.
