    Selecting a Knights team at present is like moving the deck chairs on the Titanic.

    I want to see the twins start together and see what they can do, if they get us rolling forward from the start we mite go alright.
    Ese look tired so bringing him on after the first 20 mite be a good thing for him and the team atm.
    If the twins start well and ese keeps the momentum going im sure Lillyman would be effective as ese wing man.

    Wouldn’t make any changes. I don’t think anyone played that badly. Our worst were Ese and Griffin who’ve have been great prior to tonight. King struggled abit but it was his first hit out.

    Loving Barny on the edge. Offers a lot more in attack and having a dangerous edge forward on both sides is a big plus.

    Yates needs more minutes though. The bloke is deadset inspirational with the shots he puts on. I’d start him next weekto try and get on the front foot.

    Don't think Esee was that bad and don't know what happened to Griff, King did struggle and in if Lillyman not available. Barnett had his best game this year, edge is better, can't see a spot for Yates other than bench as our three best forwards were Guerra Fitz and Barnett

    Agreed, way past time to try this, Esee on bench OK as back three forwards did OK, Esee has carried the load so far.

    I think what’s disappointing is our vets we brought in were meant to lift our young guys and they’re probably playing worse atm.

    The big comment, excuse out of last week was lack of experience, lots of 20-40 games in grade not a lot of experience, So,
    Let's fix it, is Lillyman fit, if so play him, experience, in place of King, next excuse, lack of size, play JSaf in place of Heighinton yes out with experience but in with size, Other problem, enthusiasm, play Yates. Bench DanS, JSaf, Yates and Levi. Don't think we are far of getting it right, cut out the mistakes, move up as one, support each other, besides that our Props need to put in effort starters and bench.

    Wow Freank Yatres is gonna be awful busy playing in the starting side and then coming off the bench poor guy!

    The Titans put ip a good struggle against the Storm so I just hope we don't take them too easy.

    On the money Frank ! we are not far off all we need is for everyone to participate,Move up as one and keep pushing forward (we stop flat footed as a line about 2 metres from the ball carrier ) , keep pressure on ball carrier by defending from the inside out ( it strips off time and space and allows for a tackle with momentum ) , support each other in D and attack , currently when there is a break who backs up ?? Effort on Effort is the key it shows enthusiasm to be involved.

    Few individuals compete every week but burn out from compensating. Griffin, ese ese, Guerra are all burnt out imo. Bench them all and start the bench.

    Been thinking that some of our players/forwards looking a bit jaded, has been a long preseason etc and some could do with a rest. No reason why 1 player a week couldn't be rested, 18th man, get over niggling injuries. Could be on a rotation basis unless injuries occur.
