    Why can't we all just appreciate how far we have come we competed and our played another team today! 2 in a row for the first time in forever and some one always needs to find something to complain about! I would hate to be around some of you people on your birthday you'd complain about the cake some one made for you or something

    Oh man that was so good.
    Fitzy has been one of the biggest improvers this year. He's been really tough and 4 tries to me says he's a footy player. I hope we keep him.
    Lamb was fantastic. How much tidier is he getting.
    Sione at the end there - needs to back himself with the ball more because he looks so tough to tackle- also- how's good was king a) backing up on the inside and b) with the sweet ball to lamb?
    I think this was our best win. Warriors came out firing in the first 20 after half time which has been when we've lost so many games this season and they held strong.
    Special mention to one of the safs who came up with some scrawling cover on RTS in that first half. Just so good to see.

    Looking at the stats and what I'm most proud of is completing 31/35 sets

    Do that and you give yourself a great chance of winning, Well done boys !!

    Let's all enjoy the win, too many good players to pick man of the match, but if pushed it would be Lamb but could be anyone of 6-7 players.

    Came on to 50 unread messages. 40 of them negative towards our players. I was at the game today and yeah we have some silly penalities but for me some weren't even called for. We played as a team again today, one player I am sick of seeing chuck tanties is gagai. Whinging piece of work. Hope rossy is ok. Didn't look great live. So happy we got the win and whoever said it was messy needs to look at the completion stats. Nothing messy about it.

    Rossy tweeted he is doing well, just waiting on scans. Hope for good news.

    Really enjoyed the win again today, 2 in a row, woot woot.

    I was worried starting the second half, the Warriors came out running harder, and our line speed was non existent. We were moving up 1 metre and waiting for them to hit the line.

    Chanel should have been binned for that trip, that was a horrible trip. Not a send off though.

    How good is this week going to be, 2 in a row, get the Wests announcement Tuesday :)

    ?? Every time He got over called he swore and carried on. No need for it. Wasn't like he was going to do something with it.

    Did anybody see what happened to Jack Johns in the NYC game? He was missing for most if not all of the second half. He went well in the first half. 70 - 4 drubbing of the warriors.

    Also impressed by Cameron King, makes good runs, chews up the metres and has a good offload.

    Jack Johns has gone off several times this season with that same leg injury. They said in the call that he was just off as a precaution.

    Great win, Lamb looked good, so did Sione and Barnett...

    Still a bit negative with the 2 points and kicking into touch but happy with the win.

    I hope Ross is ok, was carving them up

    Had to work today so got the missus to tape the game, had great self control and didn't check the result before watching it. Just finished watching the game I'm not really an emotional man but **** I nearly just teared up the passion and desire we showed even when the game was ours was great to see. I wasn't happy with the decisions to take the 2 the second one it looked like the young fellas were keen to get on with it and buhrer overrode them. Whole team was pretty good fizty had his best game so far in first grade. Dan safiti is not only one of the best young props in the game but one of the best props in the NRL over the last 5 weeks not only his meters but the last 2 weeks he has also rwr un a long way to diffuse two certain try's. Think we are looking good for next year I have never been prouder to be a knight fan
    ( except for taking the two)
