    Do I think we'll win? No. Do I think we'll give the a run for their money? Yes.

    Our defence was pretty good last week but this isnt a team that will commit 15 errors. We need to be at our best just to stop a blow out score.

    Ruck defence needs to be tight to contain Slater and co.

    If we win this, i'm gonna be the happiest man in the world for a week. This game is near impossible to win!

    Hate is a pretty strong word for such a trivial thing. Is 60 - 10 any more unrealistic than 13 - 9 ?

    Why can't you win 60-10? I'm pretty sure someone would of said 70-32 was unrealistic when we went up against the Raiders in 2006?

    Noone thought we'd win 54-6 against a pretty good Dragons side, away from home, back in 2006 either.

    (Head) Our defence isn't strong enough to stop Melbourne's slaughter of attack. I think we will put up a good fight till about the 60th minute & then Melbourne will crack & score about 3 tries. Melbourne 26-12

    (Heart) Lets ****ing win this boys, ****ing hate them cheating twats, Knights 20-12.

    If we can defend as well as last week and contain Slater as well as we did Barba, then we are on the way. The next thing we need to do is attack well. Somehow I don't feel like we can win this. Melbourne 20-12

    I think it will be a tune up sorry guys 40-12 melbourne, I will be amazingly happy if thats reversed or even if we win by a drop goal and i will be rooting for that but in all honesty i cant see us getting up

    I agree willowtree people posting knights to win 60-10!! really?? really?

    will be close, aku needs lots of ball and tahu needs lots of early ball. need to tackle in numbers and not play too compressed, kick early for the sidelines when we can, and try get as many repeat sets as possible, key to beating the storm is to keep the ball at the other end of the park... ruck defense has to improve as well, our markers need to put pressure on smith and slater and we are a chance of an upset :)

    Go knights!!

    Most of you rate Melbourne incredibly highly. They've beaten a bunch of nuffy teams so far, and only beaten one of them convincingly.

    Given the difference between the broncos and dogs game, I don't see that we can't improve again. By the way, only 3 people had tipped knights to win by 13+ last week, so guess we were pretty unrealistic there as well.
