    KNIGHTS

    Ladder: 12th

    Record: 6 wins, 9 losses

    Byes: 0

    What’s gone right: Kalyn Ponga has been arguably the buy of the season and has brought a buzz back to the Knights club. Ponga was leading the Daly M Medal count, when voting went behind closed doors and he is their lone Origin representative to date.

    What’s gone wrong: Defence is still a real problem in Newcastle, with the Knights conceding a whopping 392 points, which is the most of any team in the competition.

    What they need: Micthell Pearce’s injury has left the Knights lacking in the playmaking stocks, which has put more pressure on Ponga in attack. The Knights attacking philosophy has been ‘give it to Ponga’ and he needs more help if the Knights are to climb up the ladder in the back half of the year.

    Grade: D

    From where we have been, it is a solid C in my view!

    I thought the grading was a bit tough considering where we have come from (3 spoons in a row) and the injuries we have had too

    I'd give us a pass mark

    We the fans of the club can use the past 3yrs and say atm we are much improved and deserve a pass.

    The media will only gage our season off the season we are playing in.
    So 6w 9L with a very poor for and against does say a D.

    Our wins havent been comprehensive and most of our losses have been comprehensive.

    These things are usually written by someone that has seen one or two knights games all year, but they are spot on this time.

    Attack: Heaps better because Ponga and Pearce
    Defence: Still garbage

    As 88 says, if grading the 2018 season in isolation, D is fair.

    Its not u wally.

    If it was 14 games 6 wins 8 loses it would equate to a 40% 60% equation.
    Though being a uneven number of 15 with a even number of 6w and a uneven number of 9L the % cant be split into a even % for both sides of the equation.

    6÷15=0.4
    9÷15=0.6
    so 40% & 60%

    9 is 1.5 times bigger than 6.
    doesnt have to be an even number
