    Fix up the starts and we’ll win this pretty comfortably I think. Although we might lose via forfeit because we’ll probably show up to play at 6pm on Friday.

    If we don’t win we may as well fist pump ourselves in the face. The Titans are like us of 2016/17. They’re developing, trying hard but just finding a way to lose most weeks. I wouldn’t be surprised if we won this 13+ but then again I wouldn’t be surprised if they pumped us 13+. Most of the time it’s a close match but we really should be using our attack to the best of our ability this week, just start well and cut out all the dumb sh*t we’ve done the last 2 weeks and we should be right.

    This could be an ugly game, they still have plenty of good players so will be a good game to see just how bad we have been going

    If the Titans play like that last 20mins we will get pumped.

    Thankfully Frank, we choose not to be!

    The Knights are a hard enough cross to bear.

    Would rather sit on a cactus than follow that joke of a sport.

    This game is going to be tough to win. We should have beaten the GC last year when we were battling to avoid the spoon, went up there and was beaten comfortably.

    We make too many silly errors in our game at the moment, not enough go forward in sets so will be on the back foot a lot. Kicking game is poor. There is a reason all our wins this year have been last gasp victories or only just winning. It's because we don't compete in every area of the game well.

    Very Important to win this game because our next 4 will be tougher (Sharks, Parra, Roosters and Storm)

    They are all important from here in to lose touch with the pack will signal the end of "the run of hope".

    We aren't far off , but everyone has to put in and be on the same page , if the whole team competes for everything without leaving it to the next person, we have chance.

    This is the NRL , leave nothing in the tank - one player off by 5% can convert into a loss on the score board.

    If our middle tightens up and stops leaking points we are in with a chance, if they come out like the last few weeks looking disinterested we will get blown off the park .

    Not from Garth Brennan's comments today... He's sticking by him.
