    NRL Chief David Gallop says no to Benji going to Jap rugby in the 2010-11 season. What are your thoughts?

  3. I read something about this a couple of days ago. Did Marshall want to play Union in Japan during the NRL offseason while maintaining his contract with the Tigers? Given his history with injuries, I doubt his body could handle 12 months+ of rugby.

    Benny comes off contract at the end of the season. Wests actually want him to go (to rugby and come back and play league with them) so they can reduce their wage and add other good players to their roster. Players have done this in England but Gallop says no here....for now. I'm sure the players are actually for this idea as they get more money and it keeps them out of trouble for 6 mths.

    I think it's alright for him to go. I think Benji should just leave for Union if the NRL are going to be this stubborn about it.
