    I have a good feeling about this game. I think the Knights might be able pull off a dominant victory. Sunday afternoon in Newcastle... hopefully there will be good weather and a good crowd.

    Good to see Kaufusi is going to be running around in the red and blue this weekend.

    I reckon the Knights will want to prove to the crowd that they are real finals contenders. I think they will want to owe it to us for not winning games. I think we'll trounce them.

    Hopefully Gids pulls through Origin ok and can lead us to a big win.

    Cronulla away are abit more vulnerable but are hard to beat with a sh*t mentality. We learnt that when we were smashed back in the early rounds against them.

    They've also got Barrett, Gallen & Snowdenn backing up and abit of off field drama with the Ferguson walkout.

    We should have enough about us to get home against the Sharkies, Knights 1-12, Aku to bag a double.

    I dont understand this kids get in free stuff. Back in my day (The 90's, watching the steelers) I use to get in free EVERYGAME (and that was without my junior player pass, cause my sister got in free too).

    It's funny how the bye makes you super optimistic.

    Hopefully Cronulla's big guns get tired out in Origin ... but this is pretty 50-50 if you ask me.

    Not real confident about this game. Hopefully the Knights can pull of a big win though. Gids should back up and lets hope the sharks players do not back up.

    Hope Sharks guys get injured in Origin :fist: really need to win this one. Away Sharkies arent to good, just so as we get a decent turn out.

    I'am having mixed feelings about this. Playing to our full potential we should trounce them by 50, but if we play half heartedly they will pull our pants down.

    Travelling up from the South Coast for this one with a couple of my Sharks supporting mates, my first game at EAS after countless away games in years gone by so I'm hoping for a good result. This is a game we simply must win if we are going to challenge for a spot in the 8
