Easily the most over rated player in the game. Extremely skillful but just not a complete RL player. Shouldn’t be mentioned in the same breath as Thurston or Lockyer or even Cronk but he is because his mug is on the TV with his buddies who are judges of the game but can’t tell the truth. They sugar coat their comments about him by saying " I think your form hasn’t been what it has been in previous years and you’ll be the first to admit that" and he replies with the same old answer of “yeah it hasn’t but I’ve been working on my game in the offseason training hard I feel I’ve got a lot of improvement left in me and you haven’t seen the best of me yet” Then the next day in the paper you read the headline “Benji says best is yet to come”
But we all know it hasn’t and won’t, change the record Benji.
Forwards have no punch /speed just simply don’t run hard
Anasta adds nothing just as I thought
Just not tough enough period
Defence is terrible and won’t improve until almost our entire roster changes
Benji is the worst kicker i’ve seen in my life and I’m absolutely sick to death of it/him
Still the dumbest team in the comp
Farah rushes out of the line and puts a shoulder charge on, WTF
Too many mistakes which put pressure on our already weak defence
Our attack/lack of forward grunt and impact runners combined with our kicking game and last tackle options/execution are our biggest problems.
Our defence isn’t the greatest but every teams defense will fail when your attack is being dominated and going nowhere and you have to rely on your kick to get you out of trouble and that is continually hopeless too. The only players I can see in our side with the ability to run the ball with any venom is bmm and pettybourne and Lawrence but not in the position he’s playing.
Benji is our no 1 problem but everyone is too afraid to say it because of his profile as a media darling.
I’ve noticed on RL preview shows etc panel members skirt around saying what they really think and say things like he needs to touch the ball more and things like that, instead of just calling it as it is and saying he refuses to take the ball to the line, he refuses to run the ball, his kicking and last tackle options are the worst in the NRL and as a result puts pressure on the teams defence which is already overall flimsy, his defence especially close to our line is weak and he let’s tries in week after week.
I agree totally except with the Farah and Benji call, because I think we won’t improve as a team until these two have left this club. They are supposed to be our best players but our overall game will not go anywhere while they are wearing our colours.
That’s sad but true
