Must win game for the Titans given Newcastles injury worries.

I know the Titans have a few as well, but seem in better shape than Newcastle.

Also if we say the bad four aren't going to make it, that means the Titans need to start beating teams who are going to be in the mix and take the two off them.
This is the game to start doing that.

Titans by at least 56.

Why even bother to play this game with the injuries Newcastle have

Ponga, Lee, Best, Mann, Pearce, Klemmer, Frizell, Fitzgibbon, J Saifiti, Young, Hoy and Crossland all missing

F*ck this club and its constant injury toll

You just get the feeling that GC will still find a way to make it difficult for themselves. They’ll prevail in the end, though. Tits by 12

People have been seriously overhyping the Titans this season. Tino and Fifita are obviously gun players but there’s only so much a few forwards can do. Boyd, Fogarty and Rein haven’t looked much better than the dogs spine.

I’m surprised how decent our side is considering the injuries. If that 17 take the field there’s no reason we can’t get a win.

Agree with this. The knights do have a lot of options for spine players in their squad, which is where the injuries seem to have occurred. I’m a big wrap on Watson and think 6 is his best spot.

I’m not as bullish on the Titans as others seem to be. They’ve beaten up 2 horrible teams then got fed by the warriors and Raiders.

Knights really to win some of these games. They’ve dropped 2 against Wests and Saints and now play another side they’ll be competing for 7th/8th against. Games between these sides will likely decide those spots and they can’t drop too many more of them.

Glorious, warm day here. Great day for football.
Players will be hoping the temp drops a couple of degrees by kickoff though. Gotta be a furnace on the field right now.
