    It's pretty clear the problem with the boys is now between their ears.
    This game they started favourites and played their worst football of the year, till it was clear they couldn't possibly win, and then they suddenly found some form and scored a few tries.
    Last week they ran out to a big lead and then realised they should win, and fell in a screaming heap.
    They have just lost the ability to win a game.

    Maybe their little feelings were hurt by the NRL saying the game was the battle for the spoon.

    The traditional circuit breaker - new coach. Sometimes it works.

    Think of the number of "big" games we've been in over the last few years. The game against the Titans where Alex was there or against Penrith to avoid the spoon. We don't aim up. The "courage and effort" the Knights was built on is dead and buried sad to say.

    Tyrone has been good but are we ready to pick a mostly res for reserves to play firsts, is it a problem with those picking the sides, are some players not getting the opportunities

    You have picked a wing/centre at FB, a winger at centre, a FB at wing, rotate them to stronger position and yes good side

    It's like that isn't it, the bigger the occasion, the worse we play. We had a bloody good crowd today for a team playing like homos & and against a team that looked like they were trying to lose, we got annihilated. It's hard to fathom, the more support the worse we are

    I'd love to think a lot of people miss out because they are not good enough. That is just in fact not the case. Good talent can go wasted 9 times out of ten. Its just hard watching the knights lose good juniors to other clubs who become successful. The hard part is choosing which ones will make you successful. Something you get wrong 9 times out of ten.

    Other than tradition, how else? I only ask because I don't know another coach that would take us on

    They were overcome by the situation, nothing quite replaces experience

    If you are a selector or talent scout isn't it your job to reduce 9 put of 10 to say 5 or 6, that's what they get paid for

    Need a new spine next wk. 9. Starling, 7. Cogger and Lamb. Ross survives at 1 to see if he can play that badly twice. If we're not gonna succeed in recruiting a half we may as well run with these guys. Someone needs to light this team up. Starling may be the answer. What was with the dumbass positional changes today? Just made em look worse.
