    I want to say Warriors but i think the Knights will get them in a close one. Big changes for the Warriors is needed.

    Depends which Knights side turns up. If it's the one from yesterday, I don't care how bad the Warriors are going, they'll win by 20. If it's the Knights side from last week, they'll win by 12.

    knights should dominate anything less and they should be disappointed.

    Warriors have won three on the trot against the Knights at home (2006, 2007, 2008) and also won at EAS in 2005, 2006 and 2008, whilst a poor goal-kick and a shocking referee call cost them victory in 2009.

    That said, on current form, the Knights should win. Yesterday's fade-out can only make them hungrier. Warriors almost playing for their season. Can only afford 2-3 losses tops from here on in. Friday is really a must win for us. We came back from 4-8 in 2007 and 5-8 (and shocking points differential) in 2008. We are already 4-7-1.

    Knights by plenty. Can't see the warriors actively fixing their problems...

    If Cleary makes some very necessary changes, drops Ropati etc and introduces a couple of juniors we could win and kickstart our season hopefully (we've come back from similar positions the last couple of years), if not I hate to think what the score could be.

    Well I hope we come out all fired up after a hammering by Smithy all week. I can see us turning in another disappointing performance though and starting to throw our season out the window. All depends on what Knights side turns up to play.

    Hard game to judge

    The Knights will be disappointed with their last game and should be desperate to make up for it.

    The Warriors nearly always turn up to play at home

    Knights by 8

    Warriors to take revenge for losing the last game between these sides solely due to shocking refereeing and win by 30.

    I have a good feeling about Auckland in this one, not sure why.
    Auckland by eight.
