    Hopefully that will change now we've got some halves that can run the ball.

    Gus says Hayne needs knee surgery but is putting it off because the Eels get belted without him.

    Knights should be carving up, the Eels defence has been sub par all season.

    Early season form is irrelevant. You have to judge teams on paper at this stage of the season.

    Even Hayne can't carry them with 1 good leg.

    Both teams shouldn't make the 8 really...........at least we are the team no one is expecting to do anything.

    Knights and the Eels have been the 2 most boring teams this season.

    This was expected.

    I honestly can't remember the last time we scored more than 6 points up in Newcastle.

    Knights must enjoy playing on Sunday...their 3 wins so far this season have come from Sunday afternoon matches, which in all 3 matches they looked to be in control, without necessarily playing great footy....I can tip them again in Round 8 against the Panthers (Sunday afternoon).

    At this stage of the year it should be about getting the grind right and picking up points where you can.

    Both teams defended well but the Knights made a few errors. Their defence did well to cover for it.

    I reckon both teams will make the eight.

    Having the 9 day turn around probably helps to put in an 80min defensive performance which is probably the only upside to the season thus far.

    5 day turnarounds on the friday havent been kind.

    horrible game to watch, guess the 2 points is the main thing.

    Boyd was utter tripe again, no involvement whatsoever. Does he think its union? kicking on zero tackle cause he was without support. Totally unnecessary signing when Gidleys best position is probably FB, we have two or three decent backups in the Naqaima bros and MataUtai, and Roberts looked good in the halves today, with Stig and Will Smith backing up in the lower grades.

    Mullen put in another good performance too, especially defensively. Game sealing 40/20 too. Hopefully the media dont pick up on his form (suprising he hasnt been mentioned along with the Carneys, Campeses, Wallaces etc.). He is better for it without that kind of pressure.
