If Ponga’s hamstring goes, we know who to blame TC.

Pat Kaufusi and Young Tonumaipea drop out of 19 man squad. Joe Stimson starting while Hoffy moves to bench.

Hoff on the bench where he belongs.

Not long before he takes up the position of left right out

I guess the reason Kasiano keeps playing is because he's getting paid more money than the other props?

Has he really been that bad though? He makes more metres per carry than any other prop in our side. His post contact metres are always impressive.

He just needs to cut the rubbish out. If he avoids suspensions, focussed on tucking the ball under his arm and just running, getting quick PTBs, he can be extremely effective.

Looking pretty good early on. Team could use a halfback... last tackle options have been rubbish.

Kas probably just not playing enough but it feels like his impact has been non existent so far.

Nice offload from Kenny.

Team needs to sort out its last tackle options. Can't come away with nothing from 3 consecutive last tackles.

Needed to catch a break there. The attack looks at half speed today. Hardly much movement or zip to it.

The strong wind would be a factor there. I expect we will open them up in the second half. Cam Smith’s kicking game to come to the forefront.

Very happy with 14-6 lead at half time into breeze. Agree with some of comments on here re soft penalties. The one against Vunivalu on Cogger on the kick, if that is a penalty there would be a penalty on every kick. Commentators aargh agree that is penalty because he doesn't wrap his arms. Then they say on half time Munster shouldn't have got the penalty because the Knights can't move out of the way and the refs need common sense. Fitzgibbon wrapped his arms around Munster after he kicked it. A penalty all day every day.
