A fortnight ago when he named Tex Hoy at five-eighth for the clash against St George Illawarra, Adam O'Brien said he didn't want to die wondering whether the 20-year-old rookie could spark the Knights' miss-firing attack.
A hamstring strain at training on the eve of the Dragons game robbed Hoy of the chance to show the Knights coach what he is capable of.
Two games on and with his side now preparing to face a red hot South Sydney in an elimination final on Sunday in Sydney off the back of another embarrassing mental meltdown, this time on the Gold Coast, O'Brien must consider rolling the dice again.
If Hoy has recovered from his hamstring injury, he should be in the side at five-eighth for the Bunnies clash at the expense of Mason Lino, an unlucky casualty of the Titans debacle.
It's a tough call because Lino was a long way from being the Knights worst player. In fact, aside from a wayward chip late in the game that gifted the Titans an 80 metre try when the game was all over, Lino was solid. He's also an exceptional goal-kicker.
But there is no good having a sharp-shooter in your side if you are struggling for spark and creativity in attack.
Knights skipper Mitchell Pearce could never be accused of not trying his butt off. He worked himself to a standstill against the Titans. If anything, he has been guilty of trying too hard.
But he also appears anchored to an attacking structure that seemingly doesn't allow for spontaneity and chance, that relies heavily on the individual brilliance of Kalyn Ponga to conjure something up.
This constant tactic of bombing into corners for field position and to pin the opposition down early in games is all very well but there is something wrong when you are still doing it late in the contest when you are 20 points behind.
What Hoy offers is a point of difference. Another unpredictable attacking threat Souths will have to worry about.
After routing the Sydney Roosters, the Bunnies, if they are in the mood, will take a power of stopping. Ultimately, the Knights can win it with their defence. But at the same time, they will need to score some points.
You just know Souths aren't going to die wondering.
