The more the Knights lose by the better. Sick of AOB getting away with sugar coating all the loses because they’re close/on goal kicking, etc. Need some proper drubbings if we’re any chance of getting a change in coach.

Knights would have to be a chance here. I cant see Ivan backing up any Origin players after the Cleary injury.

I expect the same side that lost to Cowboys or close to it will play.

Penrith by whatever they want if they are close to full strength.

Penrith by 20 if they rest their players. We were missing half our team and still managed to beat Newcastle.

I expect the opposite.

Can't afford another loss at this point of the season. And its in line with how we approached Origin in 2022.

Knights are beatable with the side that played Cowboys. It wouldn't be a guarantee obviously. But its a reasonable chance.

It's a gamble either way.

100% a gamble.

I'm of the opinion that no players should back up for any team. I'm surprised the players union don't make a bigger fuss over it. The turn around time plus the increased intensity of origin make injuries guaranteed. Case in point Nathan Cleary.

Bottom line is, Origin players are supposed to be the best of the best and get paid extra to play Origin. They should all play for there clubs and give back to them since they are the ones investing so much money in them.

Injuries can happen at training also, so that argument is irrelevant. Player fatigue can be managed be shorter minutes when coming back.

We need a couple to back up, I don’t trust plodders like Salmon, Peachy etc playing big minutes. The Knights nearly won in Brisbane and nearly beat us in Newcastle so not a team we can just expect to turn up and beat. A win is needed otherwise top 4 starts to become rather questionable.

They are more than beatable, Penrith would still be comfortable favourites.

We are playing like shit and still managed to beat them away without Teddy, Collins, Smith, Radley, Sualli, Watson, Walker and Sitilli and Keary both going off before halftime.

Ivan should feel no fear in resting players here.

Big difference between managing training load and an NRL game.

It's not just a question of time, you cannot control the intensity of an NRL match as opposed to training. And if it is just about time then Nathan Cleary only needed 15 minutes to break down. Are we going to play To'o and Crichton for 10 minutes to manage their workload?

Either way it won't matter. I don't think Ivan Cleary will rest anyone unless they sustain an injury tomorrow night.

Panthers left edge looked a bit suspect, but it took the speed of Drinkwater to expose it.
I'm sure that bloke who coaches the Knights (I forgot who he is) could direct young Kalyn in that direction.
