I dont see marshall as any different to usual, its either rocks or diamonds with him.
Its not like this is anything new.

Some people are carrying on like our season is over.....pffft

Its how we respond to this loss that is important.

Benji is never going to change but he always should be playing 5/8.

Like Benji was Willow?
Pretty much.

Yep and we dont need Lazarus playing average and getting exploited we need Lui back or Finch in to allow Benji to does what he does best at first receiver.

As for Benji didnt have a great game and being first reciever was the main cause but he did stop a try tackling Weyman, he did set up for Lawrence and he did look dangerous a few times , just our structure in defence was probab,ly wrong with Lui out and I also think Benji misses Fulton in defence

Geo. Benji is out of form and it is a real worry.
Not a real worry........

Plus I agree with you pretty much in what I posted....

I think Wests Tigers fans have a too high expection of Benji.....

As far as consistancy goes you might say...... over-rated
Wests Tigers don't need a Coach.. The playing group has taken over..

Out of form, hurting us - He wasnt 100% last night when he was at halfback and against the best team in the comp and was still dangerous - only problem was being at 5/8 and having to be involved in the kicking game because we had no half - last month or so he hasnt been kicking much as Lui and Farah have taken it and he has been in great form- Jesus some of you would see a divot on a gold course and call it the grand canyon

He will never ever be a consistent player. So frustrating.

No- its never been all diamonds, you seeing things again
Put down the good stuff

As long as he gets it together in the back end of the year

Look at the team as a whole rather than select individuals

His form has been consistent since 2004.
QUOTE WestsTigers:"Fitzhenry is a very experienced player and will assist in providing leadership to the younger players in the Wests Tigers squad"

QUOTE Tim Sheens:"We owe our fans an apology for that today"

QUOTE Stephen Humphreys:"it was important to secure Fifita for a longer period"

I think Im onto something here.

851.......After reading 320 of your posts,no matter what the thread is about you are moaning about Sheens.

Im assuming.......(and I know Im taking a wild stab here).......that you dont think Sheens is any good.

Every time we go into a game without a recognised half and Benji moves into this role, he tries to do too much and this results in what we saw last night. I don't think he is out of form as such I just think he needs the extra time and room afforded him at second reciever, when he moves to 7 he seems to think he has to create something to win the game at each play and lacks the patience required for the whole team to perform to the best of their abilities.

Lots of good points there.

I reckon Benji is our best player so unlike Geo I think that he has to be playing out of his skin on a regular basis or at least if/when we get to the finals.

Yep! Needs to be 2nd receiver.
When 7 is out, just play someone who can move the ball quickly in the right direction.
Benji way too crowded at 7 to get any steam up or put in decent kicks.

Lazo wasn't shy in letting people know he should be given a chance.
