Knights v Souths

The Knights are without Gagai and Ponga, but they showed last week that when Ponga is out it seems to open up the game for the Knights halves. The Knights are 3 from 12 with Ponga and 2 from 3 without him, and I think this may be another one where they can jag a win without their marquee man.

The form of Milford continues to impress me, while Clune provides a handy second-fiddle. Hoy may not have the grace or class of Ponga, but his form this year in the number 1 jersey has been very impressive and he continues to show he is a player that deserves to be in the NRL somewhere.

As for Souths, they are without Cook, Murray and Arrow due to Origin, while injury has ruled out Sele and Graham, so I think they are vulnerable here. While they were great against the Eels last weekend, all of those guys (besides Sele) were key Souths success and although they still have the likes of Latrell and Walker, I think the Knights are right in this one, due to the strong injection of players they have in recent weeks.

This week they welcome back Best and Brailey. Although Brailey will not make an immediate impact, his leadership and control around the ruck will be crucial for the Knights faint finals hopes.

I think the Knights will keep this one close.
