    Slightly nervous on this one, we just beat them in the trials and they'll be pumped up after been robbed against the tigers.
    Hopefully the weather clears up by the weekend and we can see some expansive footy

    Im confident. Expecting the boys to fire up after last week.

    This game will give us a good indication of where we are at.

    Sharks will be pumped yeah but so will we, it's obvious we're the better team, it's just whether how much of an improvement we'll see from last week. Im expecting us to win comfortably but not big, 20-10

    Stop jinxing us everyone! I can't handle it. :shock:

    I think we'll come out on top, being positive! I'll say Knights 20, Sharks 12.

    I'm worried about Carney, he could pull something out of his *** to beat us, but i think we have to much class across the team to lose this one. Knights by 12.

    I am very nervous about this game. Sharks will be pumped after last weeks game, especially when its there first home game of the season.

    How do you come up with that? We've won four out of our last five against them.

    We're all kidding ourselves if we think we're a genuine premiership/top 4 contender and we lose to the Sharks.
    We should win and win comfortably. Enough of this new coach excuses...I'm fairly sure the bulldogs won on the weekend, didn't they?
    Knights by 24.

    The Bulldogs don't have all the personnel changes we do.

    It's not the end of the world if we lose to Cronulla ... and it's hardly panic stations that we lost to the 2010 Premiers.

    Just as long as we continue improving our combinations and error rates, and the effort is at least equal to last week's.

    That is if Wes doesn't prevent every ball that goes to the right hand side from going to Uate.

    I say drop Cuthbo to the bench,and bring in Korbin Sims to start. it would give the team, mongrel and a bit of creativity after the 30 minute mark.

    Huh? We've beaten them 4 out of the last 5 times :p

    Honestly not too worried about the Sharks. What they showed on Sunday they still will take time to gel, but their defence should make it closer then a blowout contest. And we should be pretty much full strength so that helps.

    They will also be distracted with Flanagan making excuses for their losses to worry about us :lol::lol:
    Pretty much everyone I spoke to about the game said it was a double movement, makes it more embarrasing that Buzz is having a whinge. What about the suss looking forward pass thrown when De Gois scored his try. Selective memory etc...

    Tahu is out. He has taken an early guilty plea.
