Should be a close game but who knows with this season.

Newcastle


Talent is secondary to whether players are confident.

You knew.

Can't have been closer.  Last incident....why not a penalty for a push in the back ?Clearly, though not a penalty try.


Four legs good - two legs bad

Another great game and another great Knights win soaking up a lot of Manly pressure, Clearly Coach Adam O'Brien nees to work on the number of penalties and set resets the Knights are giving away but they are my tip for 2021 Premiers.

That said, the Kinghts with Edrick Lee going early, Roosters and Canberra are beginning to get a number of long term injuries and departures which will impact on their Premiership chances. One key player missing today is old "Tom Turbo" for Manly and his influence on the side can benn seen by that statistic that came up when he was hurt against Canberra about how few games the win without him. Whoever stays healthy will win the Comp.

The Knights did well to stop the onslaught at times.  Not without its controversies but exacerbated by bleating.

Calling the Ref an '******* retard' did not end well for Fonua Blake.

Suitably long ban for that, I should think.

Just caught up with the game. No chance of a penalty try at the end but it was a penalty to Manly for the push.  Taking a player out of the game after they have put a kick in is a penalty any day of the week.

They should have had a shot at goal and the equaliser.

Very good game that one , enjoyed it . I thought the VR made that last call pretty quickly and I thought from the other angle it was a clear push . No excuse for the dissent though , wasn’t Atkins fault who had a very fine game and is very highly regarded . One thing watching that - wgat happened with McCullough at Brisbane . He was outstanding , what a great pick up he was

Hopefully Blake gets hammered for that, calling a ref that is bang out of order at the best of times, but to do it when it wasn't even his bloody decision was disgusting and moronic.

Genuinely shocked by how lenient that is. Sends the wrong message on many levels.

Its unbelievable,  so you can call a referee a f'ing retard for a decision he didn't even make and get just 2 games. I'm sure the referee is chuffed to bits with that.

A leaked referee’s report allegedly shows what he’s said. He’s got to be looking at double his initial ban, if it’s true. For me, this is far worse than the Leilua incident.

Absolutely.

Four weeks for a retributive cheap shot vs two weeks for unjustifiable repeated abuse of the referee with inflammatory language shows the NRL’s moral compass has gone awry.

I doubt Leulia would have got anything if it had been SoO.

This is the latest:
