    There can be a storm day or night but a KNIGHT never fears. May we steel our way to put them on the sword and defeat them whilst blood, sweat and tears lay on the bodies within. GO THE KNIGHTS!

    Raiders beat the Storm 13+.
    Knights beat Raiders 13+.
    And we are still $2.24 underdogs.

    This will be a tough game but i hope we give it to them.
    It was so good watching Smith get frustrated when the Raiders were carving them up. Will be even better to watch the Knights do it.

    we’ve been Melbournes Bogey team for a while. Obi will have a game plan. Should be a good game, I think it might get a bit heated actually.

    There is talk that Cam Smith will play halfback since Hughes is out with a broken hand.

    They are saying Cooper Johns could debut for Melbourne.
    Apparently Tex Hoy learnt to play in the backyard against Cooper and Jack Johns when he was a kid, so if Cooper Johns and Tex Hoy both debut at 5/8 it will be interesting.

    Should be a close one I think, Storm will be on their toes after seeing what we did to Canberra.

    I'd be shutting down Munster who looks to be in good touch this season, as well as Papenhuyzen. Our first loss will come eventually but i'd LOVE to stick it to Melbourne.
    This game will be won by the middle forwards, whoever sets a good enough platform and dominates the ruck gets the chocolates.

    Tough but very winnable game

    Hope OBI goes with exacly the same game plan used against the Raiders keep the ball in play and keep the Storm forwards moving.

    Not making any prediction on the final result. I'm just looking forward to seeing the team test themselves against another contender.

    The win isn't as important as being competitive and in the game.

    Show that we are at their level.

    I'm looking forward to when the commentators, media stop saying us beating a good team is an upset, or that the Raiders played poorly etc.

    Who cares what anyone says. They have every right to say that, we’ve beat Raiders, they’ve seen us turn it on last season then blew it.

    We have a long way to go yet. O’Briens game plan for Melbourne is what I’m looking forward to seeing.

    Thinking we could see a surprise at 6 with Mann out, Hoy to stay at 14 with Lino in. Ponga should pass HIA But if not then Hoy to 1 and Randall to 14 rest stay the same. Bit much for Hoy to prepare at 6 with possibility he might be required at 1 then have to find a 6.

    I hope we don't play Hoy at 14 again, it seems like such a waste of a spot. Obviously we won on the weekend so who cares what he does, but he came on with 10 to go when the match was already wrapped up, and then shifted into fullback a minute later when Ponga went off on HIA. Either give Randall the spot, or give him more minutes.

    Unchanged 17 named.
    Mann is named.

    extended bench has changed to Moga, Crossland, King and Fitzgibbon.
    Randall, Saulo, Lino, Shibasaki all out.

    To me that says Crossland is getting a game if Mann isn't fit. Straight swap.

    Disagree I am sure he can do the job 1-7 and 9 at a pinch if not pretty who else besides Watson has that cover? Lino 6-7 and 9 and Randall same.

    I think O'Brien is just making a point that guys like King, Moga and Crossland are a part of the squad and running them with the firsts for the week will keep them motivated.
