Here are Ben's favourite moments playing at the 'Fortress'.

1: Rd 9, 2022: Manly 36 d Wests Tigers 22

“It was the first time my brothers, Jake, Tom and I, had played and started together in the NRL at Brookvale. Tom returned from a knee injury. I was selected to play in the centres but Haumole Olakauátu got sick, so (Coach) Des (Hasler) came up to me about an hour before kick-off to say I would be playing second-row. It rattled me a bit and I was nervous as. It also rattled Jake. To score two tries was a great feeling. It was a proud day for our family.

2: Rd 18, 2023: Manly 18 d Sydney Roosters 16

“I came off the bench and moved to the left edge. It was a close game. My good mate, Josh Schuster, and I teamed up for a try (70th minute) which ended up being the winning one. The game came down to the last minute and we defended our line to the very end. It was a return game for me from a hamstring injury, so it was pretty special.

3: Rd 27, 2023: Manly 54 d Wests Tigers

“It was Jake’s 200th game and our last match of the year. It was a packed crowd at home. It was great to see so many Manly fans turn up for Jake. I got to start that game and to just be a part of it was special, even though I got concussed early in the second half. That first half was crazy. We scored off the first set. Jake was pretty pumped that night and he got a gift try that got him him off the nudie run.
