    And get the penalty

    The dogs have zero to lose, they're going to throw the ball around, cant be racing out of the line like that.

    Our ruck looks so loose considering we're dominating the match so far

    The dogs have made some dumb errors but they are up for this match, theyve held off some strong attack just like the knights did last week, Knights cant try and walk this one in.

    The quality of the knights attack has slowly declined throughout the half, at least their defense has maintained it's high standard.

    Hopefully we put that half behind and blow them away in the second half.

    Wow fast game, doggies scrambling defence has been outstanding in saying that they have been allowed to lay all over us when we are down there end. Matutia has been jamming everyone.

    We have played some stagnant attacking raids. 20 uses of the ball for 1 try in the 20. I'm sorry but that is just not good enough. Needed 3 tries at least.

    When Sione is on in defence his hits are good to watch.

    Dogs have given a few good teams a run for their money. I wish they’d turn Ramien inside more instead of just throwing it to him. Watson Ruins the attack when he chimes in. Sione been awesome

    Knights seem to have moved away from the ruthless edge they had a few weeks ago and seem to have fallen into bad habits - not sure if Kalyn's absence may be a factor in that.

    We are lucky the dogs have the dropsies. We really should be up up 18.

    How about that ref’s explanation on that knock on! Changed his mind twice. They’re all hopeless!!!

    There are too many voices in their ear. From what I understand they have the touchies, plus the other ref also, the vid ref tips them off also, and I believe there is a refs coach somewhere that has a line to the ref also.

    It's a lot to keep track of.
