    Compare our "star" young spine players to Nathan Cleary, Ryan Matterson, Cameron Munster, Ash Taylor, Tom Trebojevic.... we are so far behind in the important positions we may as well play 4 backrowers in the spine so at least we can tackle a bit better.

    Cogger is going well in a badly beaten pack but point taken.

    How is that even a question?

    I'd be doing the second but I'm on Dad duty.

    Haven't watched the game as I'm at work, but possession 70/30 and twice as many tackles made by us. No wonder we're down by that margin.

    Pub. Seriously. Go to the pub. Quickly, the second half is going to kick off shortly.

    Hopefully Cogger can get a bit more power in his clearing kicks over the off-season.

    I think. Cogger is the least of our problems, he's outplaying our 7 by a mile and is on 10% of the contract.

    devils advocate, cogger and lamb are two years younger than some of those guys.

    but yeah, a younger nathan cleary makes them look second rate

    I think in the midst of all the crap, once again Hodkinson is by far the most disappointing. Literally passing all the work and responsibility onto the 18-year-old.

    I'm struggling to see how the club is ever going to dig ourselves out of this mess.

    The team has lost a whole generation of new supporters through 10 years of shit, so all the news kids support other teams. Our current supporters are dropping off the Knights big time. Our crowds are in a nose dive.

    We are the worst team in NRL history with no money.

    We just have nothing going for us. We were once a club the NRL could rely on for good crowds and support no matter what. We don't have that any more.

    We should really be close to collapse.

    lol @ that effort from Mamo and Hodko. Hodko is already retired in his head, and Mamo only looks good if he's running the ball. Everything else he does is second rate.
