    Sharks but they may be a bit off and the Knights will hang in there!

    Sharks by 8 and 6 in a row.

    Getting closer and closer to being the benchmark.

    Ouch. This might get ugly for the Knights, their defense is a bit of a worry coming out of the Tits game

    Sharks by 20

    We’ll be much better this weekend back at home and for the Mark Hughes round. Can’t see us winning but it’ll be close.

    Can't see anything but a flogging from the Sharks here unfortunately

    Knights buying backs when they really need forwards. The Sharks will demonstrate this fact to them quite clearly. The Sharks won't win by many, they hardly ever do.

    Knights will be brave like always, but sadly Ponga can’t do it all on his own. Sharks by 14

    Well, Sharks have probably named their strongest side all year. Knights will lift but we should win this.

    I hope Ramien scores 3 tries in the game so Sione can get a good hard look at the player who will be taking his spot next year

    Lewis and Graham back. Has to be a full strength Sharks side.

    Toughest game of the round to pick tbh. you'd think Cronulla easily but that run of wins has to come to an end eventually, and Newy are desperate.

    Watched Ponga on an interview during the week,and comes across as a well balanced,likeable and smart lad. He will score a try or two in this game,but alas for the Knights fans,it might well not be enough. Or will it? I'll go for a Sharks win by 14,or a shock win to the Knights by a FG in extra time.
