FANS should expect to see a more emotional Benji Marshall in 2017, with the playmaker on a mission to enjoy his winning moments more.
The Broncos utility made his Intrust Super Cup debut on Saturday night, setting up two tries in Redcliffe’s 18-6 victory over Townsville.
The former Tigers and Dragons half played the entire 80 minutes at fullback for the Dolphins.
He set up winger Josh Beehag for a four-pointer late in the first half, before putting five-eighth Tyson Gamble over in the 54th minute.
“In the last couple of years especially, whenever I’ve set up a try or done something good, I don’t think I’ve showed enough emotion or really enjoyed it,” he said.
“Celebrating off the back of doing something good, it just shows how much I really want to be there and how much I’m enjoying it.”
NRL 360 presenter Paul Kent has claimed the 32-year-old was “horrified” by Brisbane teammate Anthony Milford’s attitude at training.
Marshall declined to comment on the issue but did say being at the Broncos and Dolphins had made him the happiest he had been in a long time.
Elsewhere on Saturday, the Falcons defeated the Jets 34-4, Souths Logan edged out Burleigh 19-18, the Capras beat Tweed Heads 30-16 and Mackay upset Wynnum Manly 22-18.
