Can the Knights make it seven in a row? Let’s hope not. Newcastle travel down to Allianz Stadium to take on the inform Sydney Roosters who have won four of their last five and currently sit fourth on the ladder. If the Knights are to post their first win in seven games it maybe through the pace out wide. Instead of the forwards trying to match it up the middle they may find hope in spreading it early and running the Roosters big man around. It may work, it may not, but when you have lost your previous six games and sitting in equal last I guess anything is worth a try.
Head to head these two sides are fairly even. The Roosters have a slightly better record winning 24 of their 44 encounters. They’ve played two draws and the Knights have won 18 times. Who will get the points in this clash? Can the Knights break their streak or will the Roosters keep climbing up the premiership ladder? Let us know your thoughts on this game.
