    Obviously someone who took too many head knocks.

    lol mozza. 88 appeared on the program February 2000 at the opening of the Gosford Stadium, or Bluetongue or whatever it is called now, Knights v Northern Eagles, playing for the red and blues!

    He was the only one there who gave PM John Howard a standing ovation. No wonder he lives in the silvertails territory!

    Like Nathan Ross, but clumsier.

    His biggest fault was that he couldn't jump at all. Ross didn't seem keen on jumping either when he came to the club, but now he jumps like a kangaroo.
    Ryder was short and seemingly nailed to the ground, and as soon as every coach in the NRL saw that, his career was over.

    Yeah, plus most of the time he had scored the try in his head before he actually scored it.

    Wardle seemed to say in an interview that he hoped to be fit for round 1, but hasn't been named.
    Pauli is training hard and says he hopes to be ready by round 3, which is a great result for him.
    Kostjaysyn is still a long way off I think.
    Don't know about Feeney.
    Braidie Smith would be about a month away if it was a simple break in his shoulder that didn't need surgery, but we haven't heard any details.
    No word on Brodie Jones at all.

    He was a reserve grader! Who now grandstands on the forum with his all consuming knowledge of the game!:)

    Saw Brodie Jones at the juniors games today with his arm in a sling.
    At least it isn't his back injury still.

    So now that we have seen the guys in an actual game, I think the biggest improvers from last year are Barnett, Levi, Phythian, Yates, Stone and i'd like to think Hodko and Gagai, but they didn't show it in game one. Most of them have improved. The only two who look like they have gone backwards are Mataora and Cogger, and I assume that must be because of injuries we haven't heard about.

    Sione has looked uncomfortable so far imo.

    I agree. Was very underwhelming in the first round, and perhaps the trial also

    It is strange to see him perform below the level he had settled into in his final games of last year. I suppose the best explanation is that he is struggling for fitness with the extra weight? I have no idea, but he looks half baked out there. I'm gonna give him until round 10 to show me last year's form or else I'm gonna start calling for him to drop some weight--not that anyone will listen

    But hey, I'm almost certain that I started the movement of hate which saw Ciraldo released to the Panthers. Along with the beginning of the 'hate Houston movement', amongst others. What? You guys thought that Ciraldo became the knights most hated player all on his own inside of a 12 month window?
