    Bench usage is very ordinary with some starters playing for too long or bench not playing for long enough, can’t understand why, injuries aside, that starting 13 play at least first 20 and last 20 and bench utilised either side of half. Surely a fresh player ten minutes before half is better than a stuffed player, starters 40-60mins, bench 20-40mins.

    AK47 - I am with you Pearce was on a hiding to nothing if he played SOO any way doesn’t help out cause.
    I don’t think playing Broncs is a positive they got beaten last night will com out strong next outing.
    Other positives out of the game
    1. Big game forwards to return for next game
    2. Obviously we need big bloopers to lay platform for halves
    3. Pearce, Watson , Ponga more dangerous when we aren’t being monstered
    4. We had our chances just timing and application need adjustment - I counted 3 bombed and 4 x line open wrong option
    5. After this display the referees won’t feel threaten and feel the need to over compensate

    Pearce did what he could but we had absolutely no go forward. Saifiti wasn't bending the line like he did against the Roosters and Souths, I was worried he would have a quiet one.

    The pigs need to start being that. Poor go forward. Hard though when your playing against the Melbourne storm-erees.

    Poor completion killed us. Simple as that we would have lost anyway it just meant we got flogged instead.

    Yer this is true, also whenever teams play Strom at their home ground is like playing the storm and the refs. That game was just stop start not a free flowing game, you could tell Knights and even Storm weren't playing there best on the day because of it.
    I feel there been bad refeering with a lot of games the past few weeks it really turns people off the game blowing penalties all the time.
