    Knights will win, just to confuse the hell out of people.

    Last time Knights won an away game in round 1 was 2004 against Panthers I think.

    This one looks like starting with a loss, need to get over few dramas and hope those who were injured are ready for this.

    Bulldogs 32- 16 Knights.

    Dogs by 10-12.
    Can see the Knights perking up for this one early but the Dogs have too much in attack & the home crowd advantage will work in their favour also. Could be a lot closer I think than a lot of people would expect.

    I'm under no illusions as to the result of this game, if we win it won't be big. Newcastle are a big chance and only really Gidley and McManus are out for them - so they're not EXTREMELY understrength.

    Whoever wins will not win by more than a converted try IMO.

    Chance De Gois and Taia might not be right.

    Lost Houston as well...

    Dogs to win easy.

    Knights will miss Gidley far too much.

    Knights are a rabble and have hardly a chance imo but can sometimes scare the Bulldogs, Dogs by 10 in a game where the Dogs will "do enough to win"

    We'll start off with a win. By how much? I don't know and I don't want to predict it.

    Knights aren't greatly under-strength but neither are we, despite having to start the season without the likes of Armit, Halatau and Goodwin.

    Everyone will expect a 'Dogs win by 30+ but I don't like to predict that, just in case ;)

    The LIKELY team to be named by Moore would be along the lines of:

    01. Luke Patten
    02. Steve Turner
    03. Josh Morris
    04. Jamal Idris
    05. Junior Tia-Kilifi (Goodwin is out until round 4 with toe injury)
    06. Ben Roberts
    07. Brett Kimmorley
    08. Ben Hannant
    09. Michael Ennis (gk, vc)
    10. Michael Hodgson
    11. Gary Warburton
    12. Andrew Ryan (c)
    13. David Stagg
    - Interchange
    14. Mickey Paea
    15. Ben Barba
    16. Jarrad Hickey
    17. Yileen Gordon

    hehe I know :D But I wanted to put him as VC because he's about to re-sign a life contract (another 4 or 5 years on top of the current deal that expires at the end of 2011) and no doubt he's going to be our captain when Ryan retires.
