All depends on the line-up.

Suggestions that Pearce and Best will come back for this one. Both would be huge inclusions.

You think klemmer would be back as well

In theory we should be full strength for the first time this year pending Ponga's sternum

Canberra attack hasn’t been great but their defence has been the last few weeks. If we don’t get our attack in order, we are in trouble.

Gut feeling is Pearce doesn’t play. Haven’t heard either way on Ponga but fingers crossed he’s good to go.

Also you may as well send Fitz back to Newcastle at this point.

I don't give us much chance based on the last two performances. It'll take more than a few players coming back to get thus team in order.

The whole spine was crap last week. KP was too injured to play, Clifford has his worst game and even mr consistency brailey had an ordinary one.
I thought Brailey was fine. Made plenty of great metres out of dummy half but no one backed him up. Which I find one of the most frustrating things about the team. No one ever backs up a half break or when one of our guys poke though. Everyone stays back and looks like they are just waiting for the next play.

Ricky has used his bench as his attack point. HE has basically turned his 80min players into 50 min weapons. It is when Starling comes on things will need to be tightened. Stuart has actually pulled the reigns on their fast starts in place of a strong back 20. It is their second half fades he has got rid of and he should be applauded for it. I'd love him to coach us. I reckon he would be absolutely perfect for this place. Zero chance.

Sorry guys. I got some tickets for this game so that pretty much guarantees we will lose.

Me to.... Fun fact... Last time I saw knights play at suncorp, Broncos put 70 on us. So it's been a while
Yeah I was there for that one.
Last Knights game I went to that we won was vs Titans in 2015. It’s been a while.
