    Watching Browny's Newcastle giving Broncos a decent workout

    Their attacking play is impressive

    Crisp passing, halves running straight drawing defenders in.

    Defence committed and very solid.

    Very young no name side apart from Gagai and Hodgkinson.

    They are on the rise.

    Not looking forward to playing them in Newcastle.

    They seem to have ironed out the mistakes from their game. Good discipline.

    Lots of bodies in the tackle.

    Lots of support players in motion.

    They're improving but they're still at least a couple of years off a top 8 finish.

    I think they will at the very least challenge for a top 8 position next year given their recruitment and the retention of some key players.
    Really impressed with Sione Matautai, he's a real leader.

    Yep Saints Forever , your so right about our chances at Newcastle . Brownies boys can only improve upon their recent showing against the Dragons . They have made a few very astute signings of late , so the Knights will have a much better season in 2018 .

    Although we were our own worst enemy last night , there was plenty of commitment shown , perhaps the light at the end of the tunnel . If we can cut down on our mistakes and put the same effort into the game as the team did last night , then the Dragons should post a winner . An updated injury list will give us a better indication of our chances .

    I don't hold to much on us having a great year next year unless a decision is made as to will be playing fullback. If it is Dufty then he needs to have done game time, not just 5 or 10 minutes every so often.
    The good coaches are always mindfull of what is going to happen more then just the current season.
    Our forwards will hold their own but we need to get away from the power game as the only plan. There needs to be a mixture of the power game with some speedy backs

    They have a decent coach who'll get the best out of them & give talent a go.All they need are a few no nonsense experienced players.

    Press conference last week after we experienced a narrow loss to the bye. "It's not good enough".

    Aww you're taking my words a little out of context there sweetheart. But yes, that is the general idea. I sincerely hope you haven't been losing sleep over this.

    Have a massive soft spot for Newcastle, so glad they're starting to be competitive again. This place would cease to exist if we were having a run like they were.
