Whatever Willy Mason. We will destroy you and your rabble.
rabble rabble rabble.
Is it supposed to be rivalry round?
Is newcastle our biggest rivals?
Apparently....I would have thought it was Parramatta (for years gone by) or perhaps Storm (in recent times)
There is plenty there to hate for a rivalry, 1997 rings a bell a dog of a man stomping on Toovey's face, 3 Players later found guilty of steroids use.... yea i think there is a rivalry.
Having said that, either the Parra, Storm or Dogs game would of been a better choice by the NRL.
The vote for biggest rivalry went to melbourne v manly at the moment,
Bulldogs and Parra are a bigger rivalry than us and Parra I think.
I have always hated Newcastle though since the 97 GF
I'll never forget 97, was there that day...shattered!!
But I agree Manly V Storm would be the biggest these days
manly v wests:argue:
Ours - Manly vs Parra
NRLs - Roosters vs Souths, daylight 2nd, Dogs vs Parra
Currently I believe it is Manly v Bulldogs.
The true test is the answer to the following question. Who did you hope would win when the Bulldogs played the Storm recently. I went for the Bulldogs.
Manly v Dogs.
I remember the try by a forward pass on the 7th tackle in 1995.
Never forgot that.
Funny how that rivalry survey had Manly versus 3 different teams. Everyone wants to beat Manly
I hate every other team. Rivalry round is business as usual in my house.
Norths. We won.
Sucked in Norths!
Baz - do you have a link to what Mason said?
Isn't every round a rivalry round for us?
As a teenager in the late 90's, I definitely hated Newcastle more that most other clubs.
Can anyone point out to me in the article where exactly he is talking it up ??
of course the '97 Grand Final, so I will be out there trying my best to live that up."
Mason said fellow veteran Danny Buderus has also been trying to instil the legacy of playing for the Knights against the Sea Eagles.
It all stems back to '97 when we beat them in that Grand Final.
"So we are getting everyone to buy into it, and that is part of the game this weekend
"Newcastle people love their rugby league and they hate Manly. They are very passionate and I, for one, am the sort of player that thrives on that," Mason said.
"I remember playing against Newcastle here and it wouldn't matter if we were beating them by 20 or they were up by 20, the crowd would play an enormous part in it.
"And hopefully this week with it being rivalry round they can turn up in massive numbers and get behind us."
and mother duck went quack quack quack quack
