Yep if we've dropped Olam to accommodate Seve I want Craig sacked immediately.

Papenhuyzen's try brilliant. Kenny's best game this year, looking good.

Seve made a couple of good runs but poor attempted tackle led to Knights try and dropped one cold.

Papenhuyzen poor pass cost Vunivalu a try.

Cam Smith AC joint injury hopefully not long term. Kaufusi looking average with leg injury.

Hughes and Munster are both playing very well.

Could be further in front than 18 - 6.

Pearce was so far in front of the line with that drop out! I can't believe it was missed.

Fox Sports early diagnosis (via Andrew Voss): Cam Smith's career is over after suffering a severe knee injury. :roll:

Some poor errors costing us some points. Otherwise solid first half. Really enjoyed both Kaufusi’s and Finucane’s touches leading into our first two tries.

Second half creates a good opportunity for the team now without the captain.

Good win without Cam Smith for 50 minutes. Left some points out there as well.

That challenge on kick by Hughes was horrible.

Great tackle at the end by Nicho Hynes.

Felt like we just tried to get through the second half with Smith not on the field. Was a real strange half tbh.

NRL reportedly investigating the size of the crowd today. Asking questions of both us and stadium management. Can't imagine it's anything to do with the club?
