Knights - 30 (T: Birch, Cooper, Rasiga, Manuofetoa, Farr; G: Dark 3/3 Cooper 2/2)
We had to lose eventually.
The team is half strength really.
BOH is one of my favourite players, so glad he is doing well since Lowrie didn't seem to want him last year.
LADDER AFTER ROUND 13
Need to get back on track, pull some of those playing reserves back such as Loughrey, Fermor, Saulo and get back to winning, worried that big losses may scar the younger ones
We have on had 2 six point losses all season, and were a few players short in the first one and half a team short in the second one.
We also have 5 18 year olds on SOO duty this week, so can't call up our best 18 year olds.
I haven't seen a team we can't beat if we are full strength this year.
One of Lowrie's problems is working out what our best team is though. Just in the last few weeks we have seen Hoy go really well in the halves and Talty has come in to replace Fermor and has played so well they can't drop him now.
Billy, was talking big scores against in reserves, not good for those playing up, u20's going well

Be interesting to see if any of the guys involved in the under 18s SOO side get rushed into under 20s.
Most years they do, but this year we have a pretty strong squad and few spots available.
The guy who looked most ready for under 20s - Bradman Best - might be too young. You need to be 17 I think, and Best is 16/17 this year, but I don't know when his birthday is. We could actually find a spot for Best with Andrews and Musgrove injured.
I doubt it.
Yeah you right Best the only one who might be able to handle it physically. But he struggles to play great consistantly.
I watched Best at Chs trails last week and he was very ordinary. I do however think you was strong last night for Nsw u18s origin in the 2nd half.
Gardiner done hamstring in camp for u18s origin that's why he didnt play.
Purcell 18th man replaced Gardiner. Purcell was also ordinary at Chs trials. Not up to 20s at all
Both Madden and Crossland were very ordinary for Nsw last night. Madden struggled defensively and Crosslands kicking game was ordinary as were both there running games. It looked like Nsw lacked direction.
Crossland didnt make Chs either
Best is the pick of the bunch for mine
Jirah Momoisea is out, replaced in the starting lineup by Henry-Siriah Fuimaono and Joe Bromage comes onto the bench.
live commentary starts from 1.20
They aren't great and describing what is happening, but they do give a lot of background information on players etc.
6-0 to Knights try to Alifa - goal to Dark.
Talty gets his 4th try in his 3rd game.
Fermor was scoring better than a try a game and Talty has stepped into his spot and taken up where he left off.
12-0 after 13 minutes - it's all been Knights.
