I was thinking similar things of late. One thought crossed my mind… when was the last time we saw the old Benji step and shimmy? He copped a lot of flack years ago for doing it too much, yet now we don’t see it at all. He doesn’t seem to run with the ball much anymore either. Seasons past opposing players found it hard to predict what we would do, making them 2nd guess and Benji could skip past or slip a pass away. Now there is no guessing, he gets the ball and passes… sometimes still some magic passes and great plays, but that unpredictability (which often led to magic) we used to see, is no longer around.
Makes me sad. I love the bloke and think he has been amazing for our club. I can’t even start to think about Wests Tigers without him. Where’s his younger brother???
