    It was about on par with our 2016 game that we won by 62. Just we are not as good a side as then.

    But that was a step backwards for the Knights, when they have made so many good steps forwards. They failed to compete on so many plays (not just out played, but didn't really try to play) it would be very frustrating for the coach.

    But they are mostly a very young side still. Hopefully they will learn a lot from that.

    Not enough credit to your opposition.

    We were very intense today, gave nothing away.

    Unusual for us.

    In the 2nd half yes. You were pretty average in the first 40 and still embarrassed us. Not trying to be disrespectful but any team in the comp would have hammered us today.

    Missing Pearce’s guidance big time.

    Hope he’s back soon.

    Prior and Townsend are underrated players.

    Prior torments the opposition with & without the ball but he never gets the accolades.

    Scored the match sealing try last week, similar to today’s 1 except he offloaded instead of planting the ball.

    Was great in ‘16, ordinary last year in comparison, but has lifted again.

    Love to see him off the bench for the Blues but he won’t be.

    Townsend is getting better, a lot more movement to deceive the defence.

    I actually thought you played well within yourself and made a lot of errors.

    But your defence was good. Well played, way too good.

    Matt Prior is a very, very good player. I'd have the bloke at my club without a second thought.
