Knights simply building depth, also consolidating after losing a few players... not just about money anymore. That argument is no longer valid. Don't understand why a young guy wouldn't want to earn a little extra than normal and still play with mates in a good environment. Only have to wonder who makes way in a starting XI.

If u have the capacity for rational thought you should acknowledge that all senior players are pain - and not just some

#2 I think you will find this is a summer series for teams to experiment not a Laka cup .
Why a surprise if Knights win , they beat npl teams last year and have purchased a stronger squad this year.
