    Just watching some games from the 90’s on fox sports recently got me thinking about games from years ago that stand out.
    One of mine was from 1997 against the Roosters early in the year, can’t remember the score (but we did win) but I remember watching and being impressed with the win. I’m also prettty sure Leo Dynevor had a great game at half filling in for an injured Joey.

    Any games stick in your head?

    The game against Penrith in 2005 that ended our losing streak sticks in my mind pretty well

    The two that I remember most fondly are that game against the Broncos in 2004 when Kurt Gidley kicked that wonky field goal in golden point and also our semi final in 2006 against Manly, I think we were 12 points down for most of the match and Manly were all over us but Joey scored one and put two on a plate for Kurt then Mullen almost scored a length of the field try and we ended up kicking a field goal and then topping it off with a try in the corner to Bryan Carney. That was such a high intensity game, both teams really ripped in.

    Yeah 2006 semi in the last 15 years. Let's just pretend the week after didn't happen.

    Dragons in 99 at the SFS. They play it abit on Fox. A great free flowing game with heaps of lead changes and quality tries. Plus the good guys win.

    2 recent ones for me.
    Round 1 this year, the atmosphere at the ground was next level, blew the (imaginary) roof off the stadium when Pearce hit the field goal.
    And the other is against Melbourne in 2014(?). 2 tries in the final 2 minutes and Gidley kicking it from the sideline to win. Gives me goosebumps every time

    There was a string where we won 3 in a row and then a loss and a win in 2012 that I caught by accident a few weeks ago. I was impressed but didn't recall us being that good. Mullen totally lead the way.
    '97 GF has to be it though.

    I loved being at the qualifying semi vs the Sharks in 2001. The semi final game vs Parramatta was also a corker. Down 18-0 after 18 minutes and then coming back to win.

    That was a great game! The Knights completed just about every set over the 80 minutes and Dynevor carved up.

    Rd 1 2004 season opening game vs Penriff who were premiers at the time was a memorable game for me. We played very well and Joey was looking in great touch...his kick-offs were unbelievable and a nightmare for the Riff.

    We won the game and it had me pumped for a big year. In typical Knights fashion though, Joey done his knee in Rd 3 and was ruled out for the year. What could've been if that bloke never got hurt...

    If I remember correctly, Joey got injured during our 1st final of 2002 and a week before finals in 2003. What would’ve happened if he was fit...who knows.

    Absolutely. If I recall, someone dog shotted him in the back and busted his ribs on one of those occasions.

    There's no doubt in my mind that at least one Premiership went begging due to an injury to Johns. Likely 2002 imo

    Ah yes, that's who it was. Absolute grubbery and the only way they could win.

    It was Luke Bailey not Ryles. Was accidental and not really a cheap shot either.

    The game vs sounds in 99 was a pearler. We put 60 on them and we brought it up by Craigie kicking a goal from the sideline near the full time siren.

    That was the first day I learnt the pleasure of having a [email protected] A Souffs mate of mine reckoned Tricky Trindall was a better halfback than Andrew Johns. We were both at that game.

    Ever since that game I have always thought..."Souffs are a bloody sh*t club".
