There will be no love lost when the Newcastle Knights attempt to make it three wins from three against competition favourites Sydney Roosters in NRL Round 3 action at Allianz Stadium on Sunday night.
No fewer than five former Roosters players will be running out for the Knights at Allianz Stadium on Sunday night – and a few of them have a huge point to prove.
Mitchell Pearce, Shaun Kenny-Dowall, Tautau Moga, Connor Watson and Aidan Guerra have all spent time at the Roosters and will be determined for huge games for Newcastle.
None more so than Pearce, who was controversially axed from the Roosters in favour of bringing in Cooper Cronk. Pearce has already lit the fuse for an explosive clash, cheekily referencing the Roosters’ struggle to draw crowds to Allianz and referencing that the Knights crowds already deliver better atmospheres.
Newcastle have been tremendous on the field this season, winning their opening two games in thrilling circumstances, edging Manly 19-18 in golden point in Round 1 before coming from behind to defeat the Raiders away from home 30-28.
There’s immense belief in the Hunter right now – but can they take down one of the competition’s juggernauts?
Possibly. The Roosters were fairly average in a 10-8 opening round defeat to the Tigers, but they bounced back strongly to ease past a lacklustre Bulldogs outfit 30-12 last week.
There’s plenty of pressure surrounding the Roosters at the moment. Signing high-profile recruits Cronk and James Tedesco for big money means that nothing less than a premiership or Grand Final appearance will do in 2018.
With Cronk still trying to fit into the Roosters setup and Tedesco under pressure to live up to his price tag, it will be interesting to see how the Bondi club perform over the next few weeks.
Newcastle are playing with nothing to lose and are clearly enjoying their footy at the moment, while the Roosters are shining bright under the spotlight. The Roosters have dominated this match-up in the past, but have a feeling about the Knights in this one. I’m backing the underdogs to step up and the former Roosters to five as the Knights pull off the upset.
Reece Robinson makes his Roosters debut in place of Daniel Tupou, who has an injured pectoral. Jamie Buhrer returns for the Knights in place of Jacob Safiti.
