What position do you think Benji will play?

Clearly he wont be a forward, but I cant see him any position in the backs either.

Fullback - Cant see him returning a kick, or putting in a solid punt when needed.

Halfback - Pass isn't strong enough

Fly Half - Kicking game isn't up to scratch

Centers - Cant tackle

Wings - Nowhere near fast enough

Flyhalf or inside centre in my opinion.

Will definitely have to work on his kicking game if he wants to play 10 though.

Size may be questionable for inside centre, although berrick barnes isnt the most masculine player and he has been succesful there

Haha Laughing

I put that option in as a bit of a joke. That would be the last position in the backline I'd put him.

Umm waterboy?? I think he would be suited to playing sevens rugby. But on a serious not i cant see him playing 15/13/10 so id have to say 9/12 are his best chances. And could possibly play wing, but wont be as successful. League is the game for him.

yeah marshall can pretty much play 9/10 or at a stretch 12 but cant see him makin the ABs. benji tends to be unpredictable with his form and has shocking defence. has a limited bag of tricks so will really need to be accurate with the basics

in benji's defence tho he does pull finger in the big games, but at Super14 and test level u gotta perform everygame

I can see marshall playing 10, not the best kicking game to get a team out of strife. I believe he will play halfback and he will be well suited there. I wish he all the best, hopefully he can when he plays rugby makes the all blacks. He probalely will come to nz before the world cup to play for a super14 side so he qualify's for the world cup.

Yeah, i think that he will go somewhere up north. He might not even want to come back to New Zealand. But he has shown interest to do so, i dont believe that he will get a all blacks jersey though thats just imo.

Agree SL - there are just too many good halfbacks in the country now.

He'll probably go the same was as SBW - frankly I think he's all talk and will never really amount to anything in the Union world.

All talk in what way?

He seems to cop a fair bit of stick for being an apparent showboat but from what I've seen, he's never perpetuated this perception through anything he's ever said or done. Considering all the shoulder reconstructions he's had, I actually think he's shown a fair bit of ticker to keep trying to front up the way he has.

SBW deserves all his criticism, but Benji's is a little unfair in my opinion.

Whether he is ultimately succesful in a switch remains to be seen (I think he would potentially make a very good 12), but I think he'll give it a good go either way.

True - my comment was really aimed at SBW.
