Went and watched this game. They lost 4-20. Only try was to Anthony Gelling. Chanel Tavita-Harris put a chip in behind the Knights defence line and Junior Paunga was in full flight chasing. The Knights winger was there to recover it but a split second after he caught the ball Junior smashed the shit out of him. Knights player fumbled and Gelling recovered it for an easy try. Was good awareness from Junior who could have gone for the ball but would likely have missed it.
We got a pretty stacked team but just too many errors and a lack of organisation from the halves. Knights weren't overly brilliant but just way better disciplined. They just did the basics, held onto to the ball and completed sets.
That edge of Blake Ayshford and Charnze Nicoll-Klokstad is pretty flimsy. One Knights try where both players were marking up on the winger the Knights player no right to score but a poor hit and stick and a simple spin saw the player score over both players.
Matt Allwood had a good game for the Knights...
There must something going on behind the scenes for this run of bad results - they're pretty stacked for a NSW cup team and have had a pretty settled team, yet they have been getting belted.Watched Cole Waaka play for Northcote last week. He looks a very good prospect but can't get a run now. Is that because the pecking order is clogged by players that aren't going to improve or is his job impacting on training?
