Pick the Score

Post by Knuckles » Tue 03 Jun, 2014 4:17 pm

I still remember the 2004 heartbreak up at Marathon when we only had to win to make the semis ......... said I was going to retire after that ....... never again ........ Thank God i didnt !

Big worry match of mine this one ...... Knights are a different team at home. Unlucky to lose against the Silvers at Brookvale and didnt play as badly as the score suggests against a rejuvinated Warriors. Our blokes had a fortunate win against Cronulla followed by an unfortunate loss to Brisbane.
I'll go with the homeground advantage

Newcastle 22
Wests 12

I am worried by this game as well.
complacency better not be a factor, otherwise the knights will win.

the score will be
wests-tigers 25
knights 18

if wests-tigers can: :pray:
1.maintain good dominant field position,
2. stick to the game plan
3. be patient.
4. get a fair go in the ref's calls

then at end of 80 min, wests-tigers should get the vital 2 competition points.
Basil, our rescue dog, is wondering when wests tigers will win 25 - 18 :D

It all depends on whether Tedesco plays fair dinkum or not. I see the likelihood another Benji Prima donna for the rest of the year. If Tedsesco is not happy to play pay then him off for the year and let the team play in harmony.

With Robbie, Woodsy and Sirro back we are a different team. We aren't a one person team, but Robbie does do a lot for us.

I'm thinking knight have nothing to lose and will play with pride. They can't make the eight, unless a miracle happens. They are playing at home. And it will be my first away game I have gone to watched in a while. All this against us we should still win.

The only thing going for the knights are there forward pack. And with a good bench we can monster them there.

It will be close for most of the match but

28-16. Tigers win

In recent years this is the type of game we'd lose in. If we have top 8 aspirations we have to win it and win it well.

Tigers 32
Knights 16

FTS Richards
LTS Brooks

HT Tigers 22-4

MOM Woodsy

I think your score will be reversed, with us getting the 24 and winning.

Agree with the slide comment though, we have missed different players over the ensuing weeks following our bright start to the season, but none more so than Gavet, since he limped off a couple of minutes after taking the field against the eels. Luck played a big part in getting the win that day.

He was covering the bench time of Woods and the short break Blair was getting. Our rotation has been nowhere near as effective since he has been in the sick ward. I also think that whilst Taupau has still been going well, with Woods then Gavet alongside for his stint, it compliments him and takes his game to another level.

Some of our guys coming back are short of a run, imo, and Newcastle have way more to play for - Newcastle by 20.
Sooner or later, next year has to be this year - Ricksen
