Benny has taken on the reigns of the 2nd team and has made a fairly decent start with 3 wins out of 4 games this season so far. It is safe to say his magnetic personality will keep the boys dug in and striving for the wins week in week out, and he is sure to take a big role on the social side of things.

A top bloke he can drive forward the culture the club is building and if he can keep those little feet going the 2nd team will make huge strides under his leadership.
