    First time in a very long time I have jumped and yelled at the telly.

    Great effort from Albert Vete for the double and especially David Fusitua with the quadruple.

    Have to give Cappy props for sending the play down that edge to the inexperienced Knights. Even going so far as running it on the last. Most will put that down to SJ or Ayshford but it was clearly a game plan right from the outset.

    Still some things to work such as our poor defensive efforts after penalties but after bringing up half a ton its hard to criticise the team. Fact is the boys did the job and vastly improved our points differential. Team looks happy.

    Lets enjoy this one guys...

    I still don't think they are a top eight side...yet. They need to keep improving.

    Strong performance with some lapses. 1-2 tries more would have been great for F/A reasons, but can't complain when you score 50 and win by that much.

    Still not the finished article, but at the same time you shouldn't be the finished article at the half-way mark of the season, because that's probably too hard to keep up, you taper off when other teams really begin to click in the run-in to the finals. Let's just keep building, obviously the big challenge is keeping the Origin momentum going.

    Again, pleased with Bully. It's amazing how much better he goes when the forwards are dominating

    Ayshford and Fusitua, what a combo, just goes to show how a good centre sets up his winger and Fusitua gets the glory of 4 tries.
    Meanwhile the fullback has now been exposed far too many times to let this experiment continue.

    That makes a lot of sense, thankfully.

    Balance is all thats needed, Id prefer Wells on the otherside too.
    Our Pack is missing balance though they definitely are the biggest problem.

    The Knights Pack were actually better in the middle defensively than we were and had some great line speed for the early stages.

    Vete and Bodene were outstanding but the one who surprised me the most Tommy, he had a great game.

    Would like to see Sipley in for Gubb next week.
    Need to work on last play options we are not got to get such favorable ricochets every time.

    So nice to see us work over their edge. Huge credit to SJ, Lolo, Aysh and Fus

    I've said before and I'll say it again....

    This team does my head in.

    That first half had me nervous. But holy crap what a second half!

    We thrashed a team that needed to be thrashed, rinse and repeat for next week and let's ride this origin period right to the end!

    Not wanting to get to far ahead of ourselves but the Titans lose by 11 or more and we're in 8th spot

    I thought we were pretty clinical which is an unusual word to describe the warriors. First half was always going to be a little tricky away from home, but we only missed 5 tackles and 83% completion rate.

    2nd half we kept the intensity up and exploited that right hand side, and they couldn't stay with us. Shutout in the 2nd half was probably the most impressive part particularly with a couple injuries.

    Yes it was only the Knights but I liked what I saw, a bit of adventure on attack but most of the time we did the hard yards as well. Will enjoy the performance until the first knock on next week.

    Good game, even better when we start winning the games we should* win.

    As others have said, would like to see Sipley get another run, as well as shift Kata to the wing. I'm sick to death of the play dying with him if he's unable to score.
    Ash showed what a draw and pass can do and he's either unwilling or unable.
