We beat the Knights without Moses but Parra lost with Moses where does joining the dots lead to...?

The Knights have thrown the challenge out to us. 3 good wins in a row means theyre doing everything to avoid the spoon...knocking off a top 4 candidate whilst missing one of their best was impressive. Fate is in our hands, we have to reply in kind this weekend.
We're specials :). We're starting to play with some confidence and have decently improved over the past 6 weeks. Self belief can be a powerful thing and if they needed any extra incentive it's just so satisfying to smash Manly. I'll be there with the young bloke to see it unfold.

Nights like last night don't come along often with both Parra and the Sharks losing. Regardless of what it means for us, you're a hard man if you can't be happy for the Knights. They finally seem to be heading in the right direction. Good on them. And great to see them knock Parra down a peg. They were getting a bit to big for their boots. Mom performance by Moses. His kicking game was atrocious.

Will the real Mitchell Moses please stand up?
Before this game my Parra mate reckons he plays better for the Eels because that is his real club. How should I respond?
Mate - I've been dealing with people like this for years. You just punch them in the head.

Send him a tape of Moses last 2 games with the Tigers and say 'this is what you've really bought - a spoilt brat that will play good occasionally but will let you down when it matters!

They have no idea

With the Knights leading 18-10 and Eels fullback Will Smith still in the sin-bin for an earlier professional foul, there was a curious call from lead referee Henry Perenara that drew the ire of Eels fans. As the Knights attacked, winger Ken Sio was tackled on the last play of the set before offloading the ball with his free arm.

Refs boss Tony Archer later confirmed the error, saying with momentum stopped the tackle had been completed. It was at a potentially critical juncture; the Knights forced a repeat from the ensuing play and Brock Lamb scored an arguably match-sealing try shortly before Smith's return to the field.

However Bill Harrigan on the MMM call last nite was sweet with it, saying ''the arm carrying the ball hadnt touched the ground"

Check the zero tackle site. Bottom line is Brooks got the 2 points....after being well behind at 1/2 time.

Enjoy it
