    Default Morgan Knowles

    Did anyone see the interview with Matautia on Saints TV after the Salford game? He was discussing his role playing at 13 and mentioned something about 10 weeks. I took this as the length of time Knowles is out for, but this hasn't been confirmed by the club. Did anyone else pick up on it?

    Yeah I noticed that. Then the club said today "a number of weeks" which considering he's already missed one and is out this one it must be 5 weeks +. Hopefully Woolf gets asked about it this week to clarify for us.

    Big loss to miss him for the first 10 weeks.

    I think Woolf is reading the forums judging by this. Hes not happy with the 10 weeks being mentioned.

    Don't shoot the messenger, it was his player that said it haha.

    EDIT: Just watched it back to check. He was talking about playing in the middle and said

    ".....once Knowlesy comes back I'd love to see him in the middle as well so it's gonna be a good 10 weeks where I can play my part; if I come off the bench when Knowlesy is back I will do my job there too."

    I was told 6-7 rounds, though I’m not sure how true that is.

    It's very oddly worded that. He's almost accepting that he's covering for Morgan Knowles and will just step aside when he's back. Isn't he a backrower normally anyway? Shouldn't he be saying something like "Once Knowlsey comes back he'll go into the middle and I'll go back to the backrow but I'm determined to prove my worth and earn a starting spot.".

    Matautia is wasted at 13.

    His regular centre days might be behind him but he is a line breaker.

    Bentley tackles everything that moves but only takes an inside fages drop
    off in attack little else.

    Better use of resources to use Matautia at right SR and Bentley to 13.
    At least he has a bit of football in him and can provide KevinN and Tommy
    with some Ball and/or space.

    Hard to argue against being current SL holders but the anti-football ,fages bomb,
    overly Lomax centric model is a bit frustrating at times.

    I have had that for a while. I know it's only 2 GBP but for the rubbish they print I can't be bothered.

    I presume 'in the middle' means centre . I would love to see him there . Simm , Welsby are good lads but a big powerful centre will be exciting .

    Sorry mate, you've lost me. I was half asleep. Middle is a stupid Aussie term for anyone who plays up the middle of the field (prop, LF). I agree with someone previous, I think the smart move would be for Bentley to play 13 and Mata'uatia to play SR while Knowles is out and I don't think it would do Bentley any harm either to see a bit more ball. Thinking about it, it's not a bad problem to have.
    What I will say though, I really didn't think Mata'uatia was all that great against Salford and neither was our right side so it could work out nicely us swapping it about early in the season while we have a few easier games. Obviously though, it is early doors and we all know Woolf is quite conservative so I doubt we'll see much more change other than what's enforced.

    Unless it's an article I just can't miss I don't bother. Too many adverts, page jumping all over the place as I'm scrolling, surveys to fill in, just to read what Woolf has said about Hull KR for example. Who can be bothered with that?

    Prop, hooker or loose forward fons. As Dave said, the Australians use it and we copy them as usual because our own game has completely lost its identity and direction

    What I will say regarding Knowles, if it takes him 10 weeks to be right then so be it. Even without him we're strong and just think, 10 weeks into the season when players are starting to feel it, he comes back ready to destroy and with a point to prove.

    ing yes!!! It's making me smile typing this.

    I mentioned in another thread that, apart from the Leeds CC game, our first 6 SL fixtures are against teams you'd expect to be in the bottom half of the league.

    Exactly mate but I don't think we should be fearing them in the slightest either.

    No probs mate , it was about 03:00 in UK when you posted so you were entitled to be nodding off . Agree Mata'uatia was not outstanding , but I just like the idea of a big centre .

    I'd just woken up, the bloody mosque was giving it big licks with the walah walah.

    I know what you mean regarding Centre and I do think we'll see him there at some point.
