    I would think that the chance to take the advantage is over after the second knock on. But anyway, moot point now.

    Apparently we have signed Watson.

    Good signing if true. Newie are really paying for potential at the moment, with no esablished big guns wanting to sign. Im ok with it tho.

    Ponga
    Ross
    SKD
    Matutia
    Moga
    Watson
    Lamb
    Esseessesesses
    Levi
    Bernett
    Matutia
    Guerra
    Buhrer

    Saifiti
    Saifiti
    Fitzgibbon
    Stone

    Thats not a totally horrible side.

    According to the Tigers camp it seems to be true.

    At worst we'll have an awesome 9s team... oh wait that's now gone.

    Is Moga confirmed? It was rumoured earlier this year but seems to have gone quiet lately.

    Pretty decent signing depending on the money I guess. He is one of the better running centres in the league, but geez he still cant draw and pass.

    hmmm the knights are starting to pull together a decent side, hopefully they miss the spoon next year. Hopefully they can get a decent half and forward, I dont think lamb is ready yet and should spend more time in reserves to develop

    We're going to be bought by the Wests Group, which is great news. They're putting a decent about of money into grass roots and a performance centre as well. Which would be amazing.

    I don't get how the title isn't "Wests Buys Knights", just for a laugh.

    also, good to see another fucking howler against the knights at a crucial point of the game.
    Mitchell deadset knocked it on twice before that try.

    Did Ese'Ese sign in the end?
    If I were the knights I would go overs on getting someone like Matt Scott in for next year, his experience would be invaluable in that pack and being able mentor DSaifiti and Easy E who show a shit tonne of promise

    I really like the knights and hope they kick on again next season

    Scott coming off an ACL is no go for us. I would have gone for Luke Lewis.

    So a knocked down salary based on that but would still pay overs, him playing 40 mins and mentoring 2 top young props and a young pack would be gold

    We signed Tautau Moga as well which is a solid enough signing.

    SKD, Moga, Watson, Guerra and Ponga. To be honest that's not bad at all - add in a great prop and I'd love it.
