    Will be interesting to see how they bounce back after the second half capitulation against the Cowboys

    A repeat of that crap will see us get hammered

    I honestly can't see us winning another game from here on out.

    I don't know if it's possible under the new system, but we need to give Saulo and Jones a game before the end of the season, so they can go into the off season as firstgraders.

    Put that garbage from last night behind us and try and earn some respect back. Tigers also played poorly against a sh*t side last night. So they’ll be looking to do the same.

    Not sure but think you can play players from outside your 30 nominated providing they don't start, bench only. If so then could have bench filled with outsiders, like I said "not sure"

    That is just what the NRL ruled with the Broncs wanting to start young Fifita two weeks ago. Had to be a bench player.

    Probably same team as last week except Watson in for Cogger, I would like to see JJ, Saulo and Amey (good stats last week) given a chance, not all three but at least one maybe two in place of Lillyman and maybe Heighinton/King

    Never a better opportunity to give them a run, although I'd be surprised if Heigno was dropped considering we're playing the Tigers.
    I'd give King and Lillyman a spell and bring JJ and Saulo in.

    Barry Toohey is expecting JJ Felise to be named today to make his NRL debut for the Knights again his former club and could well be in the starting lineup.

    I'll be very interested to see how he goes, because we desperately need more good props.

    How do we continue to get players back from injury and then have some fall due to injury. This club is cursed and it is fact.

    The curse began in 2003 when Joey suffered the first of a series of neck injuries which would cause him to retire in 2007.

    No one else doing enough to get a run atm, if Lillyman was fit id think jj would be in cup this week as well.
