    Probs cause his the only one that's threatening, unlike Pearce and Ponga.

    I don't mind that I'd realistically suggest that Randall plays the first 25 and last 20 and Mann goes too hooker for the between period and Crosslands to halves.

    Some bottom 8 sides are really showing some grit. We really need to be on this game or we could find ourselves out of the 8 pretty quick

    We’ll win tomorrow. I’m 32 hours into a bender operating off no sleep but I know we’ll **** it in.

    Game day folks. I’m about 40 minutes drive from the Sunshine Coast and the weather is absolutely cracking. Unfortunately couldn’t get tickets .

    Cant ask for better attacking conditions. Let’s hope we can make up for last week.

    Suggest putting $20 on Storm 13+. Either we’ll win money or Knights win against Melbourne.

    I think if we manage to win today I will be more pissed off at the fact we dropped points against last placed teams.

    I don't think we are a finals team as we are way to inconsistent and if we scrape into the 8 we will be gone first week.

    Anyway rant over, go the knights!

    Yeah they do, but they are the type of team that can still manage without a full squad.

    Watch Smith have the ref under his control today.

    I can’t see us making the 8 this year, Pearce is badly out of form.

    Don't understand the thinking at all, if so.

    We have good ladder position with lots of rounds left. And we’ve played poorly recently. Things aren’t that bad.

    I hope Randall and Barny smash Smith every time he touches the ball, do that and im not really worried about the result lol.
    Although smash smith out of the game and that goes a long way towards winning it .

    Ever team probably trys that lol
    Smith is all over the field with his hands on the ball plus converts trys he is the GOAT , we need to play our game that gritty toughness and not worry about them.
