With just three wins to their name all season, the Knights are aiming to finish the year strongly, and they have a fantastic opportunity to register consecutive victories on Saturday against an erratic Warriors side who have been poor on the road in 2017 and missed out on the finals once again.
Newcastle have improved significantly this season and their determination and effort cannot be questioned – and all their hard work was rewarded last week when they conquered the Dragons 21-14, with a late Jacob Safiti try and Trent Hodkinson field goal sealing the win.
Unfortunately for the Knights, the Tigers have also started to hit their stride towards the end of the season, meaning they are still four points behind the joint-venture outfit and favourites to pick up a third straight wooden spoon.
But it won’t matter if the Knights end the year on a positive note and can start from scratch in 2018 with a more experienced roster and the addition of a few more classy players. The chance is certainly there for the Knights to close the gap to two points on the Tigers this weekend.
The Warriors have again been disappointing this season, missing out on the finals for the sixth straight year and failing to perform to the level their talent and roster warrants.
Currently on a four-match losing streak, the Warriors have conceded at least 24 points in all those defeats and are also a dismal 1-8 in away games this season – not the sort of numbers that fans will want to see.
The Warriors have been dominant over Newcastle over time, but the Knights have won two of their last three meetings in the Hunter and seem more hungry and determined for the win at present. A day game suits both sides, but I think the Knights are primed for back-to-back wins on Saturday.
