    What a player, he has his flaws but it would be hard to find a player with a highlight reel like this one. And this is without his Kiwi magic. Congrats on the 300 and thanks for the memories

    Been living off his 05 exploits for 14 years now. Has been serviceable in patches since then, but it is astounding that he’s still playing. Good for him for reaching 300 I suppose.

    Don't forget he spent a year or two playing Super Rugby.

    Much better role model than most players playing today.

    That is a thing of beauty, and probably one of Benji’s highlights when it comes to defence. I’d expect they’ll include this clip on his pre game montage up on the big screen at BankWest this weekend.

    A once in a generation player.

    The player all the kids wanted to be.

    A champion.

    That explains the amount of young halves coming through that are turnstiles in defence o_O

    Benji wasn’t even the best player at his own club that year, let alone in the world.

    Tommy Makinson is the current golden boot winner. Nothing to see here, move along folks.

    Lol herp derp. He was arguably better in 09, 10 and 11 than his 05 form. Inbetween those years he was cruelled with injury

    My all time favorite Tigers player. Not only did he do so much for the club I love, but for rugby league in general.

    Shame his 300th is on the same weekend as Scam Smith. Benji would have easily inspired more kids (like myself in ‘05) to play rather than Smith, who would inspire kids to argue to the ref, argue a penalty when a player becomes a quadriplegic and systematically rorts the salary cap.

    Really hope when he retires we can send him off on a good note

    I suggest you go and revisit the 2010 Dally M leaderboard, you muppet.

    Lol Dally m as a measure of who's the best player

    I'll remind you last year RTS won it and Luke Brooks was 2nd, laughable
