It was a Benji Marshall masterclass in Round 25, 2011, when the star five-eighth led the Tigers to a 39-10 win against the Titans. Marshall produced a five-star performance against the Gold Coast at Campbelltown, scoring a try and having a hand in four others just days after being cleared of an assault charge.
Missed tackles cruelled the visitors’ chances – they missed a whopping 52 attempts – and they also struggled with their completions, registering 63 per cent to the Tigers’ 75 per cent.
The Tigers ran their opposition ragged, registering a season-high 11 line-breaks and dominating territory 1597 metres to 1087 metres. Marshall made 187 metres by himself, as well as four line-breaks, while young prop Aaron Woods pounded out 166 metres.
For the Gold Coast, Preston Campbell tried hard (10 tackle-breaks) while Greg Bird added 108 metres with 40 tackles.
