DSaf must be at least discussed to take Klemmers place in SOO.
The media suggesting Lodge and MacLean are frontrunners..
I wouldn't swap Dan for either of them.
Watson moving to hooker has proven to be a masterstroke. Not sure id bother buying 1 at this point tbh! His pace out of dummy half combined with Levis pace has been amazing to watch!
Pearce did his chances no harm if he wants to play Origin 2. I was hoping he wouldn't, but two points tonight gives us some breathing space if he does.

I'd love to see Dsaf in origin. Just to get that experience and understand the higher aggression needed to dominate.
Tonight he brought the aggression, it upset the burgi and really won us the game. With Klem out it was down to Dsaf to be the enforcer.
Is anyone else beginning to dream?
DSaf running into all 3 Burgi and bending them back and leaving one needing HIA was my highlight of the year so far. I know it only happened because one of the twins tried to smash Saf and accidently got his brother, but it was still beautiful.
Ramien’s try saver was also a nice little highlight
currently a win away from 3rd and 2 from 1st....
Our away record is now 4-2.
So while we were all rightfully filthy at the way we f*cked up our favourable early draw, we have at least made up for those couple that we dropped.
Fun fact, Knights have never won a minor premiership. We lost one to New Zealand by 1 try on for an against in 2002.
Yep unfortunately true. Will be massive if we could win it after 3 straight spoons and 11th last yr!
It more often than not ends up comparing our own players eg we don't need Levi we've got Watson. It was mentioned a few weeks back that with them sharing the 9 it's like having Cook for 80 mins.
Watson did an amazing amount of work today, but it will be a miracle if he can do that week after week for the rest of the season. We should probably look after him a bit more when we have Ponga back and don't need all our little men to play big minutes.
will Dan get a suspension?
He had a massive game
I thought George head hit Dans? And dan just kept powering on.
Same thing happened in 1998 when they were defending the premiership. Eerily enough, late in the season in both 98 and 02 they blew a massive lead at home and lost to a sideline conversion after the siren which ultimately cost them them minor premiership both times.
For retaliating after being headbutted?
Souths have bullied and bashed us for years. The fact that we gave as good as we got was what I loved.
I just saw a headline stating that we haven't beaten them for 8 years??
I know we have struggled with their big forward packs, but 8 years, wow.
We're here, because, we're here, because, we're here because we're here..
