A disappointing result and a disappointing crowd at Hunter Stadium for the first home match of the season. Last night Canberra played the better Rugby to defeat the Knights 26-20.
10 all at half time, Newcastle seemed to be gaining the upper hand, but a short spell before half time was all the Knights could deliver. Canberra looked a different team in second half while handling eras and bad decisions cost the Knights dearly. If Canberra had been on their game, it could have been embarrassing.
So zero and two, not the best start to the season, but the comp is never won in March.
Obviously Newcastle supporters had other commitments on Sunday night, when will the NRL listen to the fans? Sunday afternoon at 3pm is the best time.
What were your thoughts on the game and the lack of atmosphere at Hunter Stadium?
