buhrer showing his still an nrl standard player. looking sharp playing on that left edge
Good quality game. All square at 6-6 for HT. Love the look of Fermor and Jones. Surely a matter of time before opportunities for these guys. Hope we have or will lock them up for the medium to long term.
I hope they don’t use the same solid blue jerseys in first grade. Hard to tell them apart. Bradman Best is looking strong. If the ref gives us a fair chance we should win.
Best strained his hamstring again, so now both 11 and 12 are in the centres, and both looking ok
Good pickup, was forward though
Oh well, Jones is a bit too slow to play centre, but Fermor goes well.
Jake Saifiti still looks well off where he needs to be.
Chris Randall looks better than Woolford.
Crossland won't be ready for firstgrade this year, but he's very young.
Best's hammy is a worry.
I thought Saifiti bent the line a couple of times and looked strong carrying the ball. Thought Woolford looked very average. Randall definitely looked better.
Woolford looked ordinary, Crossland went ok and can kick long, very good chase and tackle from Stone, Buhrer was busy but don’t recall him breaking the line, Best is a big boy, 18yrs surely a future 2nd row. Cooper scored again, good step and pace. No stand out player for mine.
Beau Fermor is in the NSW Residents squad to play this Sunday.
I know residents is picked on where you play your football, but not sure if the boy from Dalby who was so proud to play for Queensland under 20s last year will enjoy getting stuck into those canetoads.
I see former Knights lower grader and Taree boy Christian Hazard is 14 for qld residents.
Yeah seems a bit odd that he’ll be in blue when he’s a QLDer but whatever.
Same thing has happened to Sam Anderson over the years.
Musgrove in for Best.
Jones is actually named at centre this week - WTF.
1. Jacob Gagai,
2. Kiah Cooper,
3. Brayden Musgrove,
4. Brodie Jones,
5. Heath Gibbs,
6. Phoenix Crossland,
7. Mason Lino
8. Pasami Saulo,
9. Zac Woolford,
10. Jirah Momoisea
11. Beau Fermor,
12. Sam Stone,
13. Jamie Buhrer.
14. Chris Randall,
15. Tevita Alifa,
16. Ben Thomas,
17. Jacob Saifiti
Surely swap Jones and Stone
I see Chris Randall finally has a profile on the Knights site. Only took 18 months.
Moga into the starting side and Jones Huth and Croker to the bench, replacing Thomas, Randall and Jake Saifiti.
Moga only lasted 25 minutes and was replaced by Brodie Jones in the centres.
Knights are down 10-0 after 35 minutes.
10-6 to saints at halftime
Brodie Jones scored a try on 39 minutes.
16-6 to saints with 30 minutes to go.
Separate names with a comma.
