    Billy, the forward pack going forward no doubt helps hugely but you simply cannot say that's why Hokko wasn't choosing to kick the ball earlier in the season. He wasn't trying, he's had a wake up call & is now trying, even still, his kicking game hasn't exactly come good. Lamb is benefiting, although I put it mostly down to his confidence just naturally growing as the season goes on.

    Really enjoyed watching us execute scoring plays, putting in consistent D (in numbers too) and not being dumb. Great start to the weekend and who would have thought 3 wins in a row!!!! Next week vs Storm is going to be an amazing afternoon of footy!!

    All I know is, Hodko goes OK if the forwards hold their own, and visa versa.

    Just watching broncos game as good as Gagai was tonight we are losing nothing by replacing him with Moga and with about $400,000 spare change

    His 2 try's tonight have been excellent. He's going to be a great pick up.

    Matt Gillette... 2 missed tackles, 98 mtrs. Can't believe he plays for Aus, Qld and a top 4 team. Should be sacked.

    Proud of the boys. Can definitely hold their head high tonight. Lots of silly mistakes but damn we could become a great side if we minimize them.

    Gagai 3 Try Assists tonight.
    I thought he can't put his winger away?

    Ha, I know, my only away game all year and we pull that out I was hoarse by the end of the game. Getting the Newcastle chant going, yelling all game, loved it. Went a few bays around to the gathered Knights faithful at the end to congratulate the boys.

    Awesome. The Parra fans around us were pretty quiet.

    What I enjoyed about that game, was we won without Parra putting in a rubbish performance. We held our own against a team way above the ladder who didn't stop trying all game, and honestly they didn't play terribly, they made errors sure, but we had to earn this one, and we did. We just out played them.

    Mitch Barnett doesn't get mentioned a lot.
    I reckon he's our second best forward this year, just behind Dan, and now that he has played about 30 games in firstgrade, he's starting to look like real quality.
