    That’s a lot of strike power out, hope we don’t think win is automatic, go hard.

    Nice pack although gavet does not deserve to start after his effort last week. Kingy racked up better numbers than him.

    Our forward pack should be the strongest we have had in 4 years or so.
    Dan seemed in career best form last game, and still improving 2 weeks back from injury.
    Barnett seems in career best form.
    Fitz has started the year slowly, but I thought he was finally doing some good runs last week.
    Klemmer just does what he does.
    Eseese will be ready to put in a big one.
    I expect Sione will be in for King, and he'll add some sting to the pack.
    Not sure about Gavet.

    The Titans have one of the weakest packs in the NRL, so if our strongest pack can't roll them, we are in a bit of strife.

    Wallace is out suspended too, who IMO is their best forward. If we turn up this week, we should be able to make some good yardage through the middle.

    Ramien: I need to go looking for the ball


    Newcastle Knights
    Wed 17 Apr 2019, 01:59 PM



    Jesse Ramien is preparing to roam.

    With many nib Newcastle Knights supporters calling for the centre to get more ball, Ramien has countered the argument by saying he also needs to take responsibility.

    That’s why you can expect to see a hungrier Ramien this week.

    Headed to the Gold Coast to face the Titans on Sunday, the strike back declared his intention to get more involved in the game, whether it’s an early carry of floating to the other side of the field when the opportunity presents itself.

    “I’m pretty happy with the ball that I am getting,” Ramien said.

    “I probably need to get in the game a bit more. I need to go looking for the ball as well and not just expect it to come to me.

    “That’s an area I’d like to work on.”

    It’s clear that Ramien is a potent strike weapon and he’s eager to contribute.

    The 21-year-old has made 28 tackle breaks this season, the third most of any player in the game this season.

    “Being an attacking player, I’d like to get more ball but that will come with he better we play as a team,” he said.

    “If we all do our individual jobs, they will be able to get the ball out to me a bit more and I will like that.”

    Much of the blame for Ramien’s limited opportunities has been thrown at the halves but Ramien has rejected that notion.

    Instead, he’s declared that everyone in the team needs to take more responsibility.

    “It’s not just the halves,” he continued.

    “We all need to take a bit of ownership, myself included.

    “I don’t think we’re all doing our roles to the best of our ability. It’s an area we all need to improve on and once we do that we will improve.”

    This weekend Ramien will square off against Tyrone Peachey.

    A versatile player, Peachey is going to be a handful, a challenge Ramien is ready to tackle.

    “Peach is a competitor,” Ramien said.

    “He’s an off the cuff competitor. He can do a bit of everything. It should be a good battle there.”

    It’s like a man vs boys and he’s 3 years younger than the blokes marking him. Get him a long, long term contract now.

    How about his last try! Great. Looks like he has great potential. Imagine a long term Ramien deal and someone like best coming through in 2 years or so.

    Jones and Moga playing reserve grade, so Buhrer and Sione remain in the 19 man squad.
