Benji shows glimpse of NRL best says Dugan

Sunday, August 10, 2014

SYDNEY - Josh Dugan describes it as "brilliance" but only a glimpse of what Benji Marshall is capable of doing for St George Illawarra in their run home this season.

The Dragons face Penrith in a crucial match at WIN Stadium today, with Marshall coming off a strong performance in last week's 30-22 loss to the Sydney Roosters.

Marshall turned back the clock with a magnificent stepping effort to score a late try against the Roosters before laying one on for Dugan with a great pass in the dying minutes.

"He showed his brilliance on the weekend with his solo try and it's a glimpse of what he can produce," Dugan said.

The Dragons and NSW Origin centre said Marshall's combination with five-eighth Gareth Widdop was growing with each round since the New Zealander linked with the joint venture in May.

"It is getting strong and that's from playing together," Dugan said.

"When (Marshall) first came in, everyone was still getting used to the way he played and I think everyone is used to that now and everyone knows what to expect."

Dugan admits the Dragons' form has been patchy of late and they have been guilty of drifting in and out of games.

Former Canberra star Dugan admits his side view all of their final matches against the Panthers (3rd), the Raiders (15th), Gold Coast (13th), Brisbane (9th) and Newcastle (14th) as winnable.
