    The commentary was terrible.
    Brandy said 2 meters off and a knights pass was fine. 2 meters forward.
    It seemed like what Knights need to do to win the whole game. Become draining.

    Play of the day goes to that dope Klemmer. Idiot tried to pick a fight with Mau. Mau goes after him after the full time siren but Klemmer legs it straight up the tunnel ... coward.

    It was. Positives for me was how we pinned them inside their half in the first 40. After that in the last 20 how we closed the game out. Game management is not something that we have previously excelled at.

    Like Nikuore in the middle has been a beast since he's came off the bench.
    Need a backrower to take Ma'us spot for next year.

    The biggest positive for me was when we fell behind we lifted our defensive effort to get back into it. Then used that to convert into points

    You need forwards who run hard and hurt opponents and defend well. To many does on here think that players can't do both and why need a worker like Mannah and Alvaro. Most pure pack now can defend well and hit with some force in both defense and attack.

    No room for powder puffs these days. Every charge must be hard

    I watched the game from front row GA. I then watched the Kayo replay once home. Best of both worlds. I must admit we played far better than I thought on second viewing.
    Waqa is going to be so good. Very strong defensively.
    Jenko looks slow but defence was great.
    Hopefully Fergo comes back soon.
    I also watched the 20s and reserves. No one from our "gun juniors" looked decent. Mostly very average in fact.
    Reserve grade was worse than terrible.

    Jenkos communication in defence is crucial to our left side defence. He talk
    Oregon did that for 1 match where he ran like fui. But it was for only 1 match

    Waqa was credited with 6 missed tackles. I don’t remember him missing any.

    Niukore was great off the bench. Ran for something like 130m and they were hard runs. He needs to play like that consistently.

    When they scored those two quick tries and were rolling up the field with ease, I thought we were gone. I’m glad the players now have more resilience than some of the fans (myself included).

    Hopefully we can keep building over the next four weeks and peak for the finals.

    Gutho getting some flak for getting run down by Ponga.
    I don’t think he’s carrying an injury, or was too tired or too slow for fullback.
    He just isnt as fast as Ponga who is f**king fast.

    Didnt Anasta say in commentary that Gutho is one of the fastest in the NRL when marvelling at Pongas tackle?
