It was a great play IMO, he really is starting to show some mongrel and why not rub in the win in front of the warriors fans!

He took the safe option, nothing wrong with that and great to see the team back him up. They need to start wanting to bleed for each other again if they want to make any impact on the competition and today`s game was a real step in the right direction.

I get your point, but on that night, Hodgeson ran back towards 10,000 ballistic Tigers fans. Benji was running back to no1 at an away game. Just didn't come across well.

Good on him. And if there were still 40 seconds to go he could have wasted every one of them with the dropout and not have to take it.
It's very much a gridiron type play, 'taking a knee'.

It's the equivalent of bowling underarm in cricket but the smart way of winning the game.

I thought it was pretty dodgey, but it got us the win.

Very smart. I don't know why more teams don't do the same in the same situation. What if he tried to kick it out and shanks it into a Warriors players arms and they score. It's not unsportsman like at all. It is nothing different to kicking it out, just smarter.

Don't make this thread a "always looking for negatives" convo either guys, I think we played amazingly in the backend of that 2nd half but the last minute could have been dealt with more professionally.
benji did the smart thing. he only threw the ball at the warriors' player because he got pushed by him

Thought it was great. Good on him... Maybe instead of running it dead just kick the crap out of it over the sideline rugby union style...

after seeing it on replay i think to say that Brown pushed him is kind of an exaggeration.IMO it was just a love-tap and if anything,Marshall over-reacted by throwing the ball

Did you see his kick only a few minutes earlier where all we had to do was plonk it in there corner?
Off the side of the boot and Warriors end up with another chance and great field position.
Just ground it....same thing as running it dead.

why was he jogging and looking back anyway? he should have just put the foot down and sprinted over the dead-ball line.Didn't have any reason to time waste considering you get 40 seconds to take the drop out

Smart move by Benj. Haven't seen that in footy, however what a win to put in the books at home against the NZ Worriers!
