    The fapping over benji and the constant bagging of reynolds in here has been baffling to say the least. Now benji can fulfill the role he was signed for, fill in for injuries, and mentoring younguns

    If Benji is in the final 17, without replacing a injury we don’t know about..I will demand a royal commission. At present both Reynolds and Brooks are streets in front of him and the last thing we need is a half on the bench

    Sadly I think this is the case too. I don’t think Madge rates Reynolds. I also feel he may play him in nsw Cup to encourage him to move on. I have no info saying this, just a feeling from listening to him talk about them both. If Benjis fit I expect him to be back in the 6

    Just watched replay and your right Brooks did put up maybe a few too many nothing bombs —well seen, but at least and this is a biggy for me at least the opposition had to start again from their tryline and with 6 tackles and not 7 to play with...Moses took a few crucial catches under pressure and I think he’s quietly running the show behind the scenes ..also as we’ve said several played well for man of the match but I think no one overall played dominantly enough to overhaul Chee-Kam. He did what I think no one else could have done with that try and with the try assist previous and no mistakes, if I had to choose Id give it to him..

    One of them will likely cop an injury by end of the year. Madge knows that.Hes happy having two good options. But how’s he gonna play it this week - god knows. I’ve got them neck and neck in Madge’s mind.I think he may ask Brooks who he prefers. Iether way Reynolds ain’t walking away from $900k a year. Have u seen his car.It looks like a Rolls Royce.

    That’s the thing Reynolds has nailed all his 5th tackle option kicks going for a repeat set or try... which can’t be said of Benji and Brooks BUT no one sees or can create the extra man like Benji

    If Marshall plays it says one of two things;

    1) Marketing dictate who plays
    2) the coach has no idea

    I’m leaning (in good faith of the coach) towards number 1

    I know a lot of you can’t stand him but replay the tries and you’ll see that just the smallest things he does like looking straight ahead when passing or looking like he’s moving away from where his pass is going holds up a tackler leaving a one on one which is good if it’s a big guy on small guy or even an extra man if he sucks in 2 tacklers. And he does it every time.For Benji it’s never just about passing the ball.

    The bloke was done at the end of 2012. Stop believing the hype. 2005 was a long time ago.

    Benji is playing fine at the moment. Reynolds is playing better. I'm confident that Reynolds will keep his spot.

    2 is not an option and as for 1..Reynolds is as much a feelgood story for a lot of people right now as Benj

    Personally i'd be most happy if Jennings were rested with Benji taking his spot for this game..he's certainly no slower and would spread the defensive nervousness around a bit for the eels

    I can see Naufalauma back on the wing as soon as he is right and Fanua back at centre where he’s better coz of his offliad

    I don't see Madge weakening our squad (Benji to 5/8). He is a hard nosed coach, he wants results not feel good stories..we're safe fellas

    That’s my ideal team too. Fonua has said he thinks his best position is center. That way his weight isn’t an issue. Some people have given up on Nofa but I still feel he can add a lot to the side.

    I'm apart of a FB WT supporter group and it's scary how out of touch some of the supporters are on there. Most still believe Marshall is streets ahead of Reynolds

    This comment in particular - "reynolds is not in the same class as marshall marahall is in the twighlight of his career and rwynolds is an overpaid marque player ... reynolds will never reach the heighys of benji marshall ever."

    Most people agreed with him also.
