    Our threequarter line is ordinary to say the least. We'll have to try and win this one on the strength of our forwards.

    Super bench is back!

    Home ground advantage will get us home I think

    who's next. Given Roberts is injured and may not be fit and Gidley may not back up. I think it's crazy to let Henry go early for this reason

    Luke Lewis is unlikely to back up from Origin. If he doesn't play it's hard to imagine the Panthers having any chance at winning. Ordinary backline and that's a pretty big hit to our second row. Especially with Plum still out.

    Come on goosie don't skimp on the bold prediction you left in the Knights subforum:

    (source: http://forums.leagueunlimited.com/showthread.php?t=385051)

    16 points isn't scraping through with a win. And now you're only hoping they win because it's a "tough ask"? You've changed your tune son! Not so certain now aye? PANTHA POWWA :lol:

    On a serious note, Knights by 6.

    Lewis being out is a big blow, so it's fair enough for him to reassess his tip.

    Knights should win comfortably I think.

    Without checking any stats from memory our record without Lewis over the last couple of years is abysmal. Hoping for a win but not hugely confident.

    Gidley in doubt with a knee injury, and Roberts supposedly ruled out today after a fitness test.

    Whats your soure MK? Stone was in an article saying both Gids and Aku come through origin unscathed, and will play. Late mail says both received heavy knocks but will still play, now you've heard he is in doubt with a knee injury lol. Dont know what to believe.

    Naiqama is already in the 6 due to Roberts being out (Apparently Joey said it on MMM). I'd love to see who plays halfback if Gids is ruled out...

    IF the Knights have a Naiqama/Stig halves pairing that evens it back up. Paulo to lock, Vaivai centre is a better balanced team for us.

    Should be close either way toss a coin
