So on the other site, a bloke that seems to be correct with predictions 99% of the time has said Cogger will be dropped for Gamble in this game.
Also, apparently Gagai has picked up an injury and Jenkins is going to come into the side to replace him....
classic Knights news, giveth and taketh

That's great news, happens in many a good team. These powder puffs are missing some passion. At least we know the game means something to someone in the team.

If you continuously didnt perform in the Army the whole section would bash the living shit out of you that night........not many people didnt perform.
lol I wonder why that doesn’t make it on the Defence Force recruitment campaign.

Was just reading and he also said that apparently Hastings and Pryce had a punch on at training and AOB didn’t do anything about it…some real quality leadership we have there. Halfback punching on with a rookie and coach not doing anything.

Really bad look if true.

Hope the Gamble part is true though.
Then the local media needs to do their job and stop sucking up the arse of the club to keep their employment. Cos Hastings has been sacked for throwing down at teammates before.

We talking like a full punch on or what? Any news on whether or not Dan was hiding behind some bushes during the incident or not?

on this subject though - that's why the argument " we cannot drop DSaf because there's no one to replace him " doesnt wash.

If one individual isnt performing the whole team suffers. There is nothing quite like peer pressure and embarrassment to motivate weak gutted dogs.

Kicking him to the curb and get a kid in there willing to bust his balls to win. Better than this guy bleeding the cap dry.

Brodie Jones had a career game in Cup last week at 13. He’s usually vanilla as f**k but actually looked good in attack. Could easily slide into the front row rotation.
Honestly, it's the only place I'd want to see him in FG but even then it's a stretch

Brodie has never really been given a crack though. Centre he is not. Backrower he is not. Perhaps as prop he can just get in there and motor through. Hetho and Leo should start. When you are road blocked by two overrated props, then you aren’t going to get time to show your true level of performance are you? A few more losses and something needs to give. If we left the Safs in NSW Cup for a month I bet they ask for a release. If we aren’t making the finals then at some point Those conversations need to be had. We rationalise our success . That is our first mistake.

People are being unfair towards J Saf. He’s been good for us this year, his first stint against the Chooks was really strong.

His brother is the lazy one and he hasn’t been horrible either just not playing close to his ability.
Fair. But it clearly is a package deal. The same way Leo’s brother is being brought in. If they aim up then there is no issue.

I think both Safs have a specific role they fulfill well at Origin level. We need them to be a JFH or AFB or JWH for our team but they just ain't that. Leo might become that in the future in starting to think. Does Leo have a middle name? Need a three letter acroymn. L*T.

That’s the annoying part. D Saf has the ability to be a top tier prop but just doesn’t have the killer mentality. Jacob is more consistent but still lacks something. It’s crazy how good they could be if they managed to find it.
