    Keep looking at our fabric, we've won a game Smile

    If I look at that jersey for a second longer Ill have to wash my eyes out with bleach.

    Ill be surprised if the Knights make it past the group stage. Then again they are playing another bottom 3 Premiership side in the Tigers. Broncos have a much harder go of it up against quality opposition in the Warriors. RTS, Johnson, Hurrell, Kata etc will be extremely hard to beat.

    You got beat by the Dogs, a team that doesn't give a shit AND Manly.

    We pretty much can't make it through to the group stage. We got beat by too much by the Cowboys.

    Sure that was hideous but that was what 20? years ago. Just goes to show how unoriginal the Knights are.

    Both Bulldogs and Manlys lineups are quality. They will both make the top 8 this year IMO. The Knights were thrashed and rightfully so by the reigning Premiers albiet missing the greatest player in the game.

    The Dogs and Manly have both not sent anyone decent in their squads.

    The Knights were well beaten by a quality cowboys team that knows how to play the 9s

    That is great, I didn't watch much of the 9s today but I rate Mamo so I hope he gets a shot.

    You were a fool to get your hopes up.

    Tigers have been terrible this weekend. Ball handling strictly optional
