    NSWRL site have the Flegg side playing at Dudley oval at 12, with Mathews at 1.30, Ball at 3pm and tarsha gale at 4.30 at the same venue.
    Mathews and Ball are playing the central coast, so they would be expecting a big crowd.

    This will be a good test of where we are at against Penrith. They have better strike power than Cronulla so our Defence will get tested a bit more. Our attack is going to have to fire a bit better this week, we are not going to get away with keeping Penrith to 8 points.

    I think we have the better pack and will beat them up the middle.
    But our edge defence will get tested.
    If we can defend well out wide we will win this one.

    The game against the Sharkies was very much a forward battle with backs getting limited chances. I think the Pennies will open the game up more in the backs and the challenge will be to the centres and back three. We can win this one also.

    When their coach said they had a video session on obviously the players were thinking something completely different....

    5 of my probable final 8 have lost this round so we have a few upsets, very important game coming up against panthers.

    Penrith couldn’t play any worse then they did today. Will be a good contest and challenge for the Knights to see where they really shape this season.

    They were awful great chance to give it to another team that spanks us normally.

    Play with the same intensity as last week and we should get the win. They’ll obviously be looking to come out firing after what they produced today so we’ll need to counter that.

    It’d be huge if we can get a win here with a bunch of very winnable games coming up over the 6 weeks.

    I though the Raiders pack was good last night and they played sensible footy in bad conditions. Will be another good challenge for us in round 3 but i do see opportunities for our light footed boys to create a few line breaks against them. Titans were hopeless.

    Well they would with so many chooms in the side. Those red neck Qld commentators had high praises for Wallace, Arrow, Boyd, Procter and James but for mine they never had a dig.

    Good on paper in the forwards but not replaced by real veteran hard heads which we've got throughout our rebuild. The young new players will just feed off of their non-existent winning culture I reckon.
