    Scraping the barrel there. Everyone can spew out some facts to suit their point. Like the Broncos have never won a wooden spoon, the Knights however... 2 "Richie Benaud voice" two for twenty two.

    As a Knights fan you have to scrap the bottom of the barrel, we're a blue collar team that will only ever have small windows of success. The Broncos not winning a title for ten years despite their standing in the game isn't good enough.

    Please do not include the years coached under Henjak or Griffin. Okay the years under Hook can count but has Henjak won anything ever? Deadset the worst Coach I have ever seen.

    97 would have been a belter. What a grand final.

    2001, I've never seen a team play a better half of footy than Newcastle did.

    Rochow and Sims swapping seems a little on the bizarre side?

    Everyone thought the Knights would get walloped yet 70th min and they can still win the game. Full credit to them.

    I don't follow either team but I really think ref Perenara gifted the Storm this victory with those back to back penalties

    Doesn't help when they score off an obstruction as well, we were never going to get the win but we showed great fight. More of that please.

    Surely Chase Stanley can't justify even a minimum wage contract given his injury record.

    What the fuck was Reynolds doing to Sezer at the scrum right on half time? Looked like he was going the reach around tickle?

    Haha, fucking grub he is, looked like he was in 2 minds about a squirrel or a Hopa.

    Funniest thing was Hodgson standing up to mark on the wrong side of the ruck, and then 2 tackles later went to put a hit on and completely missed and ran into his own player.

    The poor bloke is devastated but it's hard to argue with you. If Moltzen can get a gig though anyone can

    How come Jackson got binned, but the Roosters player didn't for holding Hoffman back in the Warriors game?

    It was the right call, but needs consistency.

    Yeah the sad thing is no one can deny he's a terrific player, but he can't get or stay on the field. They said its his 100th game in his 10th season. You'd have to think about 20 of those he's come off injured too.
