    See how he is going towards the end of the season before making any decisions.

    It is only 5 weeks in, still a long way to go and Benji has started to show signs of a return to his erratic past.

    I dare say the plan with Benji was to play him either off the bench or use him selectively rather than start with him every week. The injury to Reynolds has forced them to play him for 80 minutes every game and that work load is kicking in. He will be a lot more effective when his work load is halved. As for resigning him for next year, I think I would rather see him go out on a good note and open the door for a kid like Gamble

    I'll be interested to hear Gould's take on Brooks tonight....if he's 50% resigned to losing Nathan i'm expecting he'll make sure to send the message out to Brooks that he'd have a home further west if he ever feels undevalued where he is

    If Brooks form continues then I don't see any reason why we would need to chase Nathan Cleary

    The hacks will start up on it shortly so expect a headline such as..."Would Ivan Cleary prefer his son to emerging SOO half Luke Brooks? " I'm quite sure that Ivan would have his response and deflection already prepared. They have pretty much squeezed all they can from the " benji has been a revelation" angle ....did you see the oh god...not again response from ivan when asked for the upteenth time what benji meant to him during the manly press conf. The hacks will try and drive a wedge in there shortly to get a feed but i think the club has shown they can handle them now.
