    Thanks, will be interesting to see what happens. For all to play first grade you would think they will have to go their own ways at some stage though.

    Wow, fullback... don't think I've seen him play there. I've seen Pat but not Sione, maybe a late positional switch.

    Well deserved, stand out in lower grades for years.

    That's great! Debut at fullback in the Holden Cup at 16! Hope he gets a win and scores a try or two.

    live stats have Sione starting at wing outside Pat - also have Rouse at 5/8, Clydsdale at half and Rob Mason on the bench.

    - - - Updated - - -

    Sione scores our first try after 9 minutes - good debut.

    Half Time:

    Knights 8 (S Mata'utia, P Mata'utia tries)
    Roosters 18 (Alex Thomas, Jack Noble, Kurt Capewell tries. Samisoni Langi 3/3 goals)

    At half time, Sione has scored a try (Knights first of the match), made 74 metres and 5 tackles. Impressive first half by him.

    Hope we can go on to win.

    two tries to Mamo putting him ahead of the try a game benchmark - down 28-18 after 60

    It's a shame no one knows how to kick a goal in our side or defend.

    Keenan is about the 8th halfback of the season, but at least they are giving a local a shot this time.
    Stone and Pat in the centres should be fun.
    Looks like they are going for players available for next year now. Time to bring in Yeats and Bowen too.

    Compared to other teams, half these players are midgets to be making the next step into NSW Cup.

    Wish the NRL would change the 20s into 23s already.

    Been meaning to ask how young Bowen is going down here at the Knights. Not heard to much about him of late.

    Doing it easy in the 20's tonight. Sione has a bit of fire in him by the looks of it having been binned earlier in the game along with his opposite centre. Good to see.

    brisbane are very average this year saw them play the warriors and barring young oates who is now playing first grade they werent much chop...20s comp is wide open,with most clubs putting promising players into the tougher nsw and q cup comps...young tapine has a future imho...have to say have seen many 20s players just not cop the next step up...
