    The Knights have a number of smallish forwards for this game--quite a number under 100kgs[mid 90s]---not sure whether that's good or bad for us--they should be very mobile!!!

    Bad. Very bad. Especially if we can't control offloads like we seem to struggle with. It's easier for mobile forwards to get into an offloading position. I think the knights forwards run really hard as well. It's been a big difference for them to 2016. Barnett is a monster who can actually kick.

    Barnett is only 103 kgs but I suppose he can still be a monster at that weight if he has real mongrel!

    I was looking at their pack & was surprised that they only had two really big guys----bros,who are big men!! SAIFITI bros--the rest[bar Starling]are mostly under 100 kgs.


    That has to be a deliberate ploy!

    They are just using what they have for now. If they have their full pack back it's just as big if not bigger then most packs.

    Safati 1- huge
    Kostjacyn- big for a hooker
    Pauli- huge
    Buhrer- small but hard worker
    Sione- similar to other centres cum 2nd rowers
    Barnett- average size lock

    Starling and safiti2 are big guys of the bench

    The Saifiti boys are huge--125 kgs & 119!!! Starling 115.

    Stockwell 106. Barnett 103. Mata'utai 101. Stone 100. Yates 94. Buhrer 93. Levi 90.

    That bottom 6 are very much on the light side!! They should be a very mobile pack though--but inexperienced!!

    I think to start talking about weights is quite silly. It's the player that you have to look at not the number he has when he steps on the scale. Buhrer might have a field day running at Sutton.

    Sure the Knights have a few heavyweights and a few mobile players but we have the experience advantage.

    If we play like we did for the last 60 minutes of last week we'll win. If not we're at risk of losing.

    I like the idea of a lighter,more streamlined & mobile pack.

    With the i/change as it is now these lighter forwards could flourish!!
