Benji - all class, but surrounded by prawnfish.
posted in Wests Tigers Discussion
Benji Marshall is class.
The last 3 weeks I have seen him create so many great opportunities for his outside men. He has created holes for centres, and created overlaps for our wingers.
If he had some classy outside backs outside him, he would have created a few linebreaks and extra tries for his outside men. It was the same story against the Roosters. Unfortunately, we just don’t have the class hitting the whole, or the speed at the end of the backline (EG - The Nofo kick for Thompson try. If it was a fast winger, he just sprints away there, but as Nofos slow he has to kick. This is one of many examples as well).
I honestly don’t think theres many 5/8s in the game who would offer more for us than what he does. But if you don’t have the cattle around you, its pretty hard.
Would re-sign him at the right price ina heartbeat
