    Family.
    Religion.
    Friendship.

    These are the three demons you must slay if you wish to succeed.

    If he was going to go anywhere though Rorters are probably the best option. For him at least, I can’t see any reason for him to play on but to potentially go out with a GF. If it was about money he’d go to the ESL so he’s obviously not short a dollar.

    FCD,
    He probably thinks has can still offer something to clubs and that is a good thing.
    l for one agree that he would be an excellent pick up as a back up or game changer with twenty to go.

    l have only admiration for Benji.
    The way he has held himself over the years.
    He certainly no bighead and is not looking for a free lunch.
    As others have mentioned, he has achieved everything and the opportunity to pass on vital information to youngsters is worth its weight in gold.

    I'd have Benji over Norman, everyday of the week.
    With no disrespect to Benji, l'd take Elmur Fudd over Norman.
    If Norman continues his 2020 form, l'd play a player down as a better option.
    Hopefully, our new accounting firm of Hook, Gentle & Elliot will improve his numbers.

    I think it has something to do with the way those people from across the ditch speak or should I say their grammar , have you ever heard them say 6 ?

    By crikey I got the shock of my life years ago , when a Kiwi fella at the local pub told me he “ just hit sex of the best out in the backyard “ while playing a game of cricket !

    Haven’t been back there since .:flushed:

    Roosters have now lost interest in Benji.

    Benji is way better than Hunt and Norman. We should sign him.

    Anyway, while I support praise for any player, I might be the only one who recalls Marshall's inconsistent form and habit of trying to win games single handedly. He gave his best while playing against us.

    That’s a bit harsh..

    Benji was in great form when he played for us..

    There was one game at Kogarah where he passed the ball like a bullet straight to me..

    I was sitting in the 3rd row of the grandstand at the time, but catching that pass remains a great memory for me..

    Were you not scared when you saw that ball coming towards you?

    Ok

    I wasn’t really serious about signing him. But I was serious about him being better than those other hacks.

    I would rather Hunt than Benji but I would rather Benji than Norman. But Widdop was just over here fishing for a club and he's better than all of them put together if we wanted to go down the veteran route and has already proven to be able to combine very well with Hunt when they could be on the park together and was going for a bargain. I would rather have taken a punt on Widdop than buy Macca that is for sure. If McInnes decided to leave for example I still prefer a potential spine of say 1.Dufty 9.Hunt 7.Clune/Sullivan 6.Widdop than say one of 1.Dufty 9.Macca 6.Norman 7.Hunt which is what if the rumours are true we could very well end up with.

    Didn’t Benji go on a bender & run into trouble when he was supposed to be the face of rugby league? Gotto love the league!

    Mate if McInnes leaves and Hook is good on his word to start with Hunt/Normy that has an extremely high likelihood of being our spine. Imo probably the worst in the comp.
