    Where is all the blokes in the middle? Do we all just give up? Clearly.

    14-6 at half time. Bearable.
    To go down like that is disgraceful. I don't know how Brown is still around with the crap that's dished up week in week out. We don't have the cattle you say? These blokes are getting paid fairly decent dollars. DO YOUR JOB! If it means you end up all battered and bruised so bloody what.

    We didn't deserve to win that game but the Sharks should not have won by that much. That refereeing was one of the worst this year.

    Got it sucks supporting this team. If the team had 5% of the passion the fans did we wouldn’t see garbage like that.

    Yeah look, bit of perspective is needed. We tried hard for the most part. To lose Lachy, then Watson after already missing Ponga. Refs hammered us, no 50/50's. I'm not too concerned about today's result. I didn't expect much else to be honest.

    I agree it was bad. No excuses though from us. 2 games left. Make them your best 2. They better bring there A game next week vs dragons. Hard to fault some blokes but others don't deserve to be fed.

    We had Yates playing relief hooker and Buhrer in the centres FFS.

    Totally agree. No need to slit wrists. Look at both teams on paper and that’s the result you would expect.

    How many marquee’s do they have and how many do we have.

    Another day to forget for us.....Just another day for Knights fans

    65 missed or ineffective tackles, 12 penalties conceded, Completions at 71%, Just 1 Line Break, Barely made 40m a set on average, Made 600m less than Cronulla, Injuries and a sin bin to top it off

    We did OK with so many guys having to play out of position.
    Yates probably won't get a contract, but if he does he'll have to put in a lot of work on his passing game. His accuracy was very poor.
    Denniss had his best game I thought.

    It doesn't matter who's in or out we continue to have 3 in a tackle and can't stop teams strolling down field.

    I’ve been one that liked the idea of him being relief hooker, man, they were some wild passes :lol:. He may want to practice those just a little bit more :giggle:

    So much this. Hence the reason we should be solely focused on front rowers not other teams back up halfbacks.

    Wow 65 missed tackles, the commentators said at halftime we had 6 missed tackles. We did seem to really fall apart in the second half.

    Levi didn't have his best game in attack maybe he was to tired. He made 47 tackles with 2 missed that's a massive effort.

    Definitely the pick of the centres today. I think he's worth keeping around.

    Levi was the worst player on the park.
