    We will win this,

    Im expecting a huge crowd of 25,000+ and a knights team full of confidence, belief and pride in themselves to knuckle down and win a hard tight game.
    20-18 win

    Rochow lol. Challenging himself at Souths obviously didn't work out.

    4 different clubs in the space of 2 years, sounds like he's being challenged to me.

    Cronk might be rested? With Crift being named?

    Otherwise full strength team pretty much

    Melbourne are the best side in comp and will pounce on any error we make. Defensively they are very hard to crack and Smith has control of the referees . We've got to be realistic here. Us by 48.

    We'll run out with 8 players in the 2nd half to give them a shot.

    I just hope we give it a good shot and that the players come off satisfied with effort and scoreboard is respectable, am hoping within 10 points. Would be nice to think that all the hard work and effort didn't come undone this week.

    If we win, it's the best game for years from us.
    But even if we lose by 40, it's not really a disaster. Melbourne are capable of beating any side in the comp by 40 if they have a good day at the office, so any result is OK really.
    The loss against Wests was a really bad result - a loss against Melbourne - not so much.

    I'll be happy if we just compete hard and give them a really tough game

    Melbourne are the best team in the comp so if we give them a real run for their money I'll be really happy
