    Our defence is really on the up since we lost that liability Sione.

    Fitz has regressed his first up contact in defence would be like being in a pillow fight

    Worst Knights game ive seen. With the players we have we should have rolled them easy.

    Our attack improved a little but just to many errors.
    Our defence has gone out the window the last 2 week's.

    I preferred supporting the 2016/17 Knights, atleast they had a go.

    We finally found a way to make Tyrone Robberts look like a start half.

    You mean the liability that was our 2nd top defender as in number of tackles and our number 1 when it comes to 1 on 1 dominant tackles ?

    That's the one.
    notice there was no missed tackles and no try's scored down our right edge without him.

    Yeah that jerk. The fact that we’ve conceded more points in the 2 games he missed than the 4 he played in is a total coincidence.

    King made 75m in 15mins.
    That's massive compared to the other forwards.

    Klem 111m in 65min
    Fitz 90m in 80min
    King 75m in 15min
    Dan 62m in 45min
    Glasby 56m in 51min
    Barnett 35m in 80min
    Gavet 29m in 35min
    Ese 24m in 29min

    Our forwards need to make a lot more meters if we are going to be competitive.

    Can't believe Barry Toohey and others saying Herman showed good signs. A couple of runs that threatened no one and some half hearted defence. The player that shocked me yesterday was Glasby. He looked like he wasn't fair dinkum.

    Rough day at the office mate.

    I sincerely hope Man City won the league. Couldn’t handle Liverpool winning.

    Same with champions league. Could handle losing to Barcelona but not Liverpool should we get past Ajax.

    Ahhhh just a sucker for punishment I understand.

    Shouldn’t shock you. Glasby is park footballer out of that storm system. He did something amazing in his past life to be blessed like he was in this one and fall into their system.

    We're missing Guerra already. No one to clean up all the missed tackles yesterday

    Didn’t want to come on too early with responses, very disappointed with the result caused mainly with poor handling rather than lack of effort. Players who did well were Ponga, SKD, Ramien, Hunt, Pearce, Klemmer, Buhrer and King. OK we’re Lee, Watson (tried too hard, mistakes), Glasby, Fitz, Levi and Barnett, with Gavet, Ese’ese and DanS a bit quiet. Don’t see us changing the side much for Parra as uninjured and in form this is about our best. Sione will probably come in so someone might go and I think that will be King or Gavet.

    I can't really get around Gavet. He just seems like he's got a bad/lazy attitude and rubs off on others. Same thing that got him benched at the Warriors. I understand that apparently he trained very well in the pre season hence the starting prop spot, but he could be cancerous
