Do the Knights need instant change or do they remain patient with the current crop. Wayne Bennett seems to think that remaining the same is the key to results. Despite an average turnout on sunday against the Raiders, coach Wayne Bennett believes there were a number of positives to take from the game.
Though Newcastle have now started the season 0 from 2 which sits them in 14th position, they have lacked in forward momentum in both games and have not shown a glimpse of their spark from late last season. So what changes need to be made?
Does Matt Minto shift to a more traditional position in the halves at the expense of Michael Dobson while we wait for Jarrod Mullens hamstring to repair, then place the exciting Jake Mamo at fullback for his debut. Or do we need a forward presence with the likes of Korbin Sims and Toka Likiliki, any of these changes could improve the Newcastle top 17, though Wayne Bennett is the supercoach for a reason.
