3:30pm kickoff over here = 5:30pm in NSW.

I cannot wait for this! It's been about 11yrs since I've been to a Knights game, and the first time I've seen them play over here since late 1996.

I'm disappointed that we're likely to be wearing our white 'away' kit, but I'm stoked with our 4 game winning streak and that we're in a very good position to make that 5 in a row. I'll be in the corner in the bay beside the designated Knights bay.

Up the Knights!

I said it a few weeks back and I’ll say it again, it is so good to have a mostly unchanged team week to week, especially when we are winning.

Ugh this has danger game written all over it

Knights flying high. Dolphins missing a few with nothing much to play for. Game on the other side of the country. Old Creeping Jesus and his voodoo over our team

We should teach the Milf a lesson for not wanting to stay with us…and thank god he didn’t.

This is the view of the weather from my house looking roughly in the direction of Optus Stadium, roughly a 10min drive from here. 3hrs until kickoff.
Beautiful day. No rain today, nor yesterday if I can remember correctly.
It will be a lovely, fast track today.

Up the Knights!

I hope you're right, @Jono078 !

I'm in the bay next to the designated Knights bay, which is in one of the corners. Dom's tryscoring corner, if I remember correctly.
That view will be similar to this, taken a few weeks ago at a Perth Glory vs West Ham soccer game.

Coming with me today is my mum, my sister, my 7yr old nephew (his first footy game, thus his first Knights game ... he's super excited!), my mate (an unfortunate Brisbane supporter), and we've got an empty seat for Dad, who died suddenly an unexpectedly 3 weeks ago. This will be my first Knights game without him, and as I'd bought the tickets months ago, I put his ticket in his coffin for him. It was his ticket. It's his. I have on me his wedding ring, and his father's wedding ring too, both avid die-hard Knights fans, so in spirit at least, there will be 4 generations of us getting right behind the red and blue today.

Up the Knights!!

Sorry to hear this mate. Condolences, and I hope the lads rip in today and give you something to smile about.
