Harold Matts Round 7 highlights (Knights start at 9:05)
SG Ball Round 7 highlights (Knights start at 9:22)
Matts are down 30-10 at halftime - looks like Souths win the minor premiership, and might be hard for us to beat in the finals.
lost Mats 30-16, so we should finish second and Souths first.
We actually won the second half 6-0, so hopefully we can build on that the next time we meet them.
Ball is down 22-10 with 15 minutes to go - no hope of making the finals now.
Lost Ball 34-16 - one game to go, but the season is over.
Cooper Jenkins, Harry Croker and maybe Christian Ma'anaima might get a run in Flegg before the season is over.

Ladder leader Souths have lost this morning in Mathews, so a win against 8th placed parra now and we win the minor premiership. Parra have a lot to play for, they drop out of the 8 if they lose.
Halftime in mats, knights up 10-6. Very even game so far. Parra look bigger and harder running, but knights look fitter and should come home better.
28-6 win to the knights, minor premiers.
Big max Bradbury came out on fire in the second half and bashed parra back into their box. He dominated the field for 20 minutes and then got an early mark. Our forward pack, led by Bradbury just rolled over them.
There was an article pre season saying Bradbury would be our best, and he is. Big, tough, and also mobile and fast enough to mix it with the backs. He did look to be running out of puff by the end though.
The big fullback also had a great game. He looks a lot fitter than the start of the season, but still massive and fast.
What about the #16 for Parra?
Already grey on top and easily looked like he could have pulled up in an SUV with the missus and a couple of kids, hopped out and played a game of U16s then taken the family to Maccas before working the door at Rooty Hill RSL that night!
He was a giant, but I noticed ha only had about 3 good runs, then off for a smoke and a beer.
Ball lost 24-0 - should finish the season about 13th - which shows how easy it is to drop down the ladder in juniors. They lost by a few points to some of the top sides during the season.
Pretty sure I saw him checking the form guide in a break between one of his three hit ups.
First final in Mats should be against the Bulldogs in the 1 v 4 match.
The Bulldogs lost in rounds 1 and 2 against the Knights and Rabbitohs, who went on to finish 1 and 2.
Since then they haven't lost a game and their recent scores look better than ours - so it isn't an easy game, despite us beating them 42-6 at their home ground in round 1.
