Pretty surprised by the hate for Benji. He's nowhere near the player he was but i'm not sure we have much better. Reynolds didn't exactly shoot the lights out when he played any significant minutes and Gamble's debut was painful to watch.

The harsh reality is that we didn't win a game last year when Benji wasn't 5/8... We were 12-9 when he played...
Geez, then I hope he plays till he’s forty.

Not sure I agree. JR added spark to our attack in the few games he played - that is, he made a positive contribution in each of his (few) appearances. This makes me think that if he played a full season (a big if I know) we would be much more competitive than this year.

Alright guys, I've had to delete about a dozen posts because one peanut decided to swear and a bunch of users decided to quote him. Here's a tip for next time - don't - because your typing for nothing and you can expect your post to be deleted. For the initial post containing swearing - expect a warning. I can't be any clearer than that and there is a sticky regarding swearing on here - it won't be tolerated.

I like the idea of Coen Hess a lot

Brooks and Hess could be a very dangerous combo!

If cowboys have another poor season and if he doesn’t improve too much I’m sure he’d be very gettable

Benji was solid for us last year, he was more of a leader than those more fancied. Gamble is no where near first grade standard. The hate at times on some of players is rubbish and people just wanting to bag for the sake of it.

Yeah, him and his third tackle kicks were really helpful. An uninjured JR would have seen us make the eight.

In fairness though, Benji was very good the first couple of weeks but it really derailed from there.

If we have to rely on Reynolds to get us in the eight, we can feel free to go ahead and book our holidays for The weeks after the the last round then.
we won’t be doing much else. 😄

They’re looking for the Returns counter.
