    Hopefully we have come out injury free and can play seem team and bench and play similar to today will then give the roosters a fright if not a loss.

    Just finished watching replay as unable to watch live. Wow, felt for Watson being benched but that would have been due to not being fully fit, he certainly wouldn't have been dropped on form, however I don't think you can send Mann back to the utility spot after that effort - can people maybe think we have two good options there instead of whinging?

    Great effort by the boys.

    Re the Brown bagging, was well deserved we didn't look like we gave two hoots, now the boys are fired up so kudo's to the club as a whole!

    What was the excuse for us winning the previous 3 weeks there then? Plenty shown in those efforts too.

    I'd give Mann another wk coz that was a nice flogging. Everything ran smooth as a ....
    If he can help us get over the rooters it's his spot to lose

    I think Mann while not brilliant can actually be a playmaker. Watson is not a playmaker in any sense, he's a runner and a great one at that. Mann should definitely start, he doesn't need to do much organisation but the right hand side saw much more ball this week with him out there.

    It's great to finally have choices in positions and to be winning games.

    What I liked seeing from Mann was his short kicking to the in goals. That alone is something we have been lacking from a 5/8.

    My worry is the Roosters flat game this week, they don't often lose two in a row. It's also very hard to win five in a row in this comp & our four in row weren't exactly against the competition's heavyweights.

    Looking forward to it but I think the short turn around could be a killer like it was for the Roosters this week.

    Either way I'm going to be there soaking up the awesome atmosphere and watching the boys playing the Roosters with some hope of actually winning.

    Can't wait.

    With Ponga, Pearce and Levi doing his job we don't need another playmaker and a runner is great for our team.

    Fun Facts

    - Today's win was our biggest against the Dragons since Round 5, 2006 and funnily enough Nathan Brown was coaching the Dragons at the time
    - Todays win was our biggest win since Round 26, 2013 when we beat the Eels 54-6
    - Today was the first time the Knights had scored 40+ points since Round 26, 2014 which funnily enough was also against the Dragons
    - Today's halftime score was the Knights biggest halftime lead away from Newcastle since 2003 (28-0)
    - Kalyn Ponga equalled Michael De Vere & Tasesa Lavea for the most points scored in a match against St George Illawarra with his 24 points
    - Kalyn Ponga became only the second Knights player to score 24 points or more in a game, The other guy was some bloke named Johns who did it 5 times

    Broncos were pretty good. That young forward pack were huge.

    I grimaced when the Roosters got rolled this week, it made our job harder for next week. The short turn around won't help either. What the Knights can do, though, is treat this like a finals match and really wind up for it. The worry with doing that is usually the emotional let down the week after, but with the bye, that can be managed too. Friday should be a classic.
