good time slot so when we lose i can walk straight into a pub and just start sinking beers until i die
Think I might do the same and watch those four legged things run around a big circle and swear at the fookers when I don't get a result.

Canberra by 26-18.

Been watching very closely and boy Ponga just doesnt give a f**k at times does he?
Really getting some flat track bully vibes
Fortunately for the knights, there is no flatter track than the Raiders right now

Knights by 1-12

I know Ponga gets paid the big bucks but targeting him as the source of our problems this year is an odd one when he's ranged from very solid to excellent (Sharks game) in his 4 games this season.

Put Tedesco or Tom T into this current Knights rabble with a Kurt Mann/Blake Green halves pairing and see how they go. I doubt much better.

Knights with Hoy - 2-2 with losses being close games.
Knights with Ponga - 1-3 and getting smashed.

Hoy > Ponga

Yeah im not saying he's a bad player or that he's the problem, far from it. He's obviously very good and he's going to absolutely rip this raiders team apart

But i watch him every week and it seems to me as far as club footy goes, if the knights are in it, he's really a lynch pin to their success, almost nothing good comes that isn't from him... but when the game starts to get away from them, he throws the towel in real quick. I wonder how you build a consistent winner if your best player has that sort of mindset.
