    Great progress. We lost by less than 12 again!! And we definitely look more gelled this week than last so all is moving in the right direction with coach Brown at the helm. Should be a good 4-5 weeks on the road. :eek::(:no:

    So frustrating we have the players to be a threat. Just not playing like a team. The positive same as last 3 weeks we were in it and had a chance to win just cant execute.

    not sure what we do in training but its clear it has nothing to do with attack! We have nothing when it comes to 5th tackle options! Surely its time we start questioning Browns position as coach!

    The reason why we’re not a treat is because of our coach.

    If I was in charge I wound sack the coach ; drop Fitz ; bring in moga ; buy a decent 5-8 .

    Browny under real pressure now. That was our worst game yet. Finals slipping away quickly & there's no excuses if we miss the finals.

    We are the worst team of the past 20 years. Its an absolute joke and it just keeps getting worse. No more saying its only round 5 or we are building towards something. This is garbage and this town desereves better than this crap year in year out. I said it last week every single team has finished higher than 7th several times since 2006, that is our best finish. 3 finals in 12 years, stuff it

    Pearce is out of form

    We line speed won’t cut it

    And you can tell they need time to gel as a team.

    But they shouldn’t be this bad.

    In the past we haven’t had the players to be able to judge Brown but this year we do. It’s not looking good.

    The only players who shouldn’t be ashamed of themselves
    Klemmer
    Ponga
    Lee
    Watson
    Guerra
    Saifiti

    That’s 2 backs a forward and 3 bench players
    What the **** was the rest of the team doing

    And yes I think Watson has a good effort - coming from the bench he was pretty damn good at hooker

    Great defence this year, attack just needs time to gel. Few dozen more games together and our spine will be ready.

    Brown is the kind of coach who comes in when the chips are down, smiles for the cameras, stays optimistic when a club is at it's lowest, similar to when buderus took over briefly when Bennett left before the end of the year. But when you've gotten over that period and have recruited players, you need a tactician and someone with a killer instinct who isnt afraid to go off on his players when they are phoning it in for a very generous pay check. As much as I find Bellamy's behavior comical, his record speaks for itself and there's no doubting his passion for success. Brown seems to just want to be everyone's friend and tell them it's ok even when theyve played like absolute dog poo.

    At the risk of giving some of you a stroke - Michael Hagan would design a winning game plan for this squad.

    New head coach in and Brown to move to head of recruitment? Or once he is sacked does he lose credibility?

    Long time watcher of the site but its getting beyond a joke since when have the knights had a problem in scoring a try? yeah i can see our defence has improved some what but we should be playing to our new players strengths which is attack, Ramien to switch sides he needs more early ball and will have Lee great combo from last year at the sharks so why even break it up??
