A club legend – Benji Marshall was let go by Wests Tigers last year, who knew full well that teenager Luke Brooks would become the new “Benji”, and on Sunday, the master and his apprentice will go head to head for the first time.

Ahead of the Tigers-Dragons clash, online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au is offering a series of markets involving the opposing halfbacks and the more experienced Marshall finds himself the favourite to make the most metres ($1.80), most tackles ($1.70) and score more Supercoach points ($1.70).

Brooks’ willingness to take the line on sees him a $1.67 favourite to make more runs than Benji, and the 19 year old is priced at $4.40 to score more tries than the Dragons number 7 ($7.50). A tie is priced at $1.36.

“Benji will have a point to prove against the club he said he’d never play against, as well as the man who replaced him as the Tigers pin-up boy – Luke Brooks. As a Tigers fan, Brooks grew up idolising Marshall, but there’ll be no respect shown come Sunday,” said sportsbet.com.au’s Christian Jantzen.

Brooks’ Tigers are the $1.72 favourites to win the game while the Dragons are $2.10 outsiders for the match at ANZ Stadium.
