    TBH I am slightly confident for this one :)

    I cant wait to see a Vuna kick return again aswell!!!

    Lets just hope Wes gets fullback if Gids goes to the halves and not McDonnell.

    If Mcmanus is out then Kev should FINALLY be given a go. If Stone turns around and just throws Lulia in there again im going to start a war against Stones coaching position

    My heart is saying a famous Knights upset victory, but my head is saying a 40 point thrashing. I will be going to the game no matter what to cheer on the boys. UP THE KNIGHTS!

    Guys we have not lost a Monday night game at home in 5 attempts. Remembering the penrith game earlier this year was an afternoon game. Also Manly have only won once here since the northern eagles breakup. A close upset win is on the hands & needed aswell.

    I don't really know how anyone can have any confidence about this game. Manly have hit some good form lately & we've named one of the crappest sides we've named this year plus the boys are down on confidence after 2 bad losses & a couple of season-ending injuries, & too make things worse i doubt anyone in the team, even Gidley, believes they can make the finals knowing they can't lose a game to do it.

    Agreed. Although I'll be watching and cheering for the boys I can see this being very ugly...

    dont worry i know the sharks will get flogged every week, but i still go for em, to me footy isnt about just winning, its just great to support someone and ride that roller coaster, a team winning or losing doesnt affect my life so i just watch and enjoy either way im still alive and have me health haha

    I'll have my fingers crossed til my hand cramps but I can only see a gubbing at home to Manly. I'm glad my free NRL access has finished cause this might be a heart-breaker and season killer.

    just wondering how people think Manly won't score more then 20 points this game? We've leaked 80 points in 2 matches, and manly have scored 86 points in 2 matches. If we win, it's going to be a high scoring match

    Another thing confusing me, how many props have gone from rookie to starting prop in the 4th NRL game?

    The guy needs a good half a season to a full season playing 20,30,40 minutes off the bench before he is even considered starting. Coming on against a tired team isnt the same as playing the usually very physical period in the first 20 minutes of the game.

    Heard Fatty say it will be a tough clash when they previewed us, like i honestly dont see us winning against Manly. We've got injuries & its not like lately we have been playing good even without them, the 3 matches we won were against Parramatta 6-4, Titans with no Prince & Sharks which we played crap in we were just lucky they didnt play any better than we did. And also all the positional changes, Mullen i think is slowly gaining his form back & now hes shifted to five-eighth again with the 3rd halve pairing this year. If we pull this off will be so happy but cant see it unfortunately :cry:
