    Essentially, yes. Kicks off 4:00pm local time in Auckland, will finish in darkness by 5:45pm... all the while being mid-afternoon here in Australia.

    Oh thank god it's Sunday. Thought It was a 5:30 Saturday and I was going to miss it due to work.

    Anyways, the #GotYourBack campaign will give the boys motivation to perform.

    Knights 12+

    HHmm, we should win, which means we'll probably lose.

    Speaking of #GotYourBack

    This pic suggests the knights could be wearing thier home strip.
    Interesting way of replacing the betting sponsor's logo. Normally clubs give that space to a charity

    Yeah. We're going to be favourites going over there and that immediately makes me nervous. Obviously going on today we have the ability to do the job and do it well, but the Warriors are still dangerous in Auckland despite the tripe they dished up on Saturday.

    This is a danger game for the Knights. Going over to Auckland to play a Warriors side coming off a 56 point reaping, after a healthy win for themselves, this game has their inconsistency written all over it.

    Alas, you can only pick on form, and I reckon the Knights will get up by 10.

    Last year, we broke a 6 game losing streak at Mt Smart (2006-2011) over there, albeit in fortuitous circumstances.

    Hopefully we can get another big win here which will help our F/A before a tough match against Souffs the following week.

    Yeah the Warriors blew an 18-0 lead and not long after that Bluey was fired. The year before when I made the trip over there we blew a 12-4 Half Time lead to lose 20-12.

    I fear the bounce back factor of the Warriors. But when Elliott is coach is puts me at a bit of ease.

    I'd like to Thes a coin for this one!

    They must've changed the time too cause the draw I have contacted to my fridge that I tore out of Round 1's Big League said Midday (2pm NZ Time)

    Uh oh not the Warriors in NZ. I've got a bad feeling about this. Tbh I hope Uate isn't named, because Manu usually seems to enjoy running over the top of him. Warriors by 6.

    At least I can look on the bright side and have a [email protected] the following week.

    Massive danger game for the knights. However I don't think the warriors have the bounce back ability like the knights when you compare the players and the coaches. Knights by 3 furlongs

    The Knights *should* win this one. First 20 minutes will be the key though - don't let the Warriors get a sniff.

    I think Warriors are the one team you want to let have a sniff if previous games are anything to go by.

    When a team is down, you keep them down tbh.
