    Has Taufua ever played lock? This could be risky.

    Edit: Surely Matty Hilder would start at lock wouldn't he? Taufua on the bench & Taia in 2row would be a much better team wouldn't it?

    Taufua played lock early last year against manly i think. His main position is lock/second row.

    I agree, it's siilly Hilder isn't starting.

    Gotta love round 1, every team starts fresh so there's no idea what to expect.

    While I admit I'd be surprised if we pulled off a big win, I'd just be happy to see the boys have a real dig and start the season with positive notes.

    Do you all seriously believe the Knights are going to win this game? Really?
    I think we will get done. Hopefully not by too much, but it'll be good to see them have a run.

    taufua played lock against melbourne in 08 when we won 17-16 he dominated that game from memory smashing everyone of melbournes forwards he has a great offload and passing ability plus this is a big call but he could play burgess style of footy

    This game will be a challenge for the Dogs they are being told by everyone that the Knights don't stand a chance and are going to fail every test thrown at them this year.

    I think we can win this and I am going to write down how we are going to win on a piece of paper now, I will share this with everyone on Sunday or Saturday night.

    To give you a clue look at the Dogs team sheet...................... yes you can see how as well can't you.

    On that note we should win 24-16

    Maybe with taufua playing lock that means that hilder is likely to start at hooker

    GO KNIGHTS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Same. Whilst it's great to be positive... I'd be just happy with a positive performance. The Bulldogs will be very difficult, I can't see us winning this one.

    I Think that when Gidley is healthy he start at fullback with Peter Mata Utai on the bench and just after half time Kurt Moves to the Halves with Peter at Fullback What you guys think??????????????????????????????

    I used to feel exactly the same way...I had no respect for any of our opponents...I even felt contempt for some of them, like we could beat them all on the same day!...
