Haha sorry missed that!
Knights are in pretty much exactly the same position we were in. Hammered the Titans, Sharks and Raiders. They got stomped 32-10 last time they faced a decent team so honestly I don't think they're as good as people would have you believe. Hopefully the one point loss hasn't dented out boys confidence, because that'll be the difference. If the Knights come in with belief and we don't we'll get stomped, but if both teams come in and play to their best (and we don't have Brown at centre) we should win a tight one.
I don't think too many people are backing the Knights?
Not on here and not over on LU. The general consensus is they'll be the team that comes in at 8th. It'll be interesting. Our struggles out wide could really be telling against them, with Uate in the form he's in..
You seem honestly suprised? The Broncos performance gave you no reason to be confident. We were a whisker off beating a in form Broncos against all odds. Maloney won the MOM award on 702 by the way, over the field goal kicking Wallace. That is rare, very rare. On the radio people wanted to see how we performed, it was our test. Combined with people actually rating Maloney, Locke and Johnson. How are we supposed to be underdogs? Whether or not we turn it on on Sat, is another thing. Though you can't blame people for rating us, can you?
I don't think they're as good as people would have you believe.
And as for MoM awards. I was at Suncorp last year when the Warriors won 48-16 and Matt Gillett won the MoM...
I'm not sure about that Gillett thing, i still refuse to believe its anything but an urban myth. TD could have been hallucinating, or Gillett's name could have been mentioned in some other capacity.
He was from our team though, we hardly win those awards on the losing sides. Big effort from Maloney to have officially outplayed Lockyer in a big clash through the eyes of some very good judges. Maloney is actually rated quite highly. They explained how hes rising the ladder of good halves. Proud to hear that about one of our own. I hope so much, we'll continue to back up that sort of form. We are a pleasure to watch. Been a long time since i could honestly say that. Across the team.
