    MacDougall gives Knights a month to get back on track
    http://www.theherald.com.au/news/lo...to-get-back-on-track/1845314.aspx?storypage=0

    - Stone was confident Mullen and McManus would play, and said MacDougall, De Gois and fullback Shannon McDonnell (knee) would be checked on Thursday.

    - Outside backs Cooper Vuna (ankle) and Keith Lulia (knee) have minor injuries.

    - Utility forward Cameron Ciraldo did not train in the rain yesterday but was confident of playing on Saturday.

    - Stone said the Knights were still trying to recruit an NRL-calibre front-rower before the June 30 deadline to register players this season.

    A possible Knights squad is: Shannon McDonnell or Wes Naiqama, James McManus, Junior Sa'u, Adam MacDougall, Aku Uate, Jarrod Mullen, Kurt Gidley (c), Ben Cross, Isaac De Gois, Dan Tolar, Steve Simpson, Cory Paterson, Zeb Taia. Bench: Matt Hilder, Cameron Ciraldo, Richie Fa'aoso, Con Mika, Joel Edwards (two to be omitted).


    The month Mad Dog is referring to:

    Bye
    Panthers (Away)
    Wariors (Home)
    Eels (Home)
    Titans (Away)

    Bye

    We better get up this time, Wondering if there will be another Uate show. Won't be surprised to see Kev Naiqama play this game, Won't be announced till the last minute though.

    It's a tough ask, but I think we need to win 3 out of these next 4 games to have a chance of finals footy.

    If we can beat the Panthers this weekend it'll set the tone for the next 3 games. Get a load of MacDougall, who does he think he is :lol:
    Alot of personnel for a possible return also which would be good to see.

    Uate being outside Sau, is no different to him being outside Lulia really, except that with Mullen back, he possesses his bullet right pass

    Tough game for us, even though we have a good record at Penrith in recent seasons they are a completly different team this season. We need to make sure we get on their game early otherwise we will get done.

    Head says Panthers, Heart says Knights.

    Btw whos going down to the game?

    He was throwing them quite alot, until I think it was against Titans, he threw the one that got intercepted, since then he hasn't done it once

    Lulia can link up with his winger well. I have seen him put Uate into open space a few times. Put it this way, if we put him on Sau's side, it would be a big mistake.

    Anonther reason i'd have Uate on the right is because of his big right foot step. How many times have we seen him get on the outside of his winger? Not sure if he could do the same if he was on the left

    Playing there shouldn't be an excuse either, we have a good record at CUA.

    If we can posess a low error count and have good online defence, we should be able to take the cake. However, I think Penrith will be far too strong for us this game and will be fired up after the Rabbitohs game.

    This is our chance to show them up in the forwards. Petro missing really does hurt the Panthers go forward, his presence is as much of a threat as his runs
