Monday night footy returns to Hunter Stadium this weekend for the Knights match against the Cowboys.
Already the Cowboys are without Brent Tate and Matt Scott. Amazingly Thurston has no case to answer for his head butt on Josh Reynolds in State of Origin II and he is clear to play on Monday night. I look forward to seeing heaps of kids repeating his head butt at footy games across the country on Saturday morning. The NRL claims it wants to clean up the game, well there was a good chance missed. Anyway back to the Cowboys, Knights game. I canít remember the last time the Knights won, so maybe just maybe they can do a New South Wales and finally win a game. The Cowboys form has been up and down in recent weeks winning three of their last five. Newcastle holds the balance of power when it comes to battles between these two clubs. From 31 matches, Newcastle has a 17 to 14 lead, but as we all know stats mean nothing come game day. With a little luck hopefully more of the Cowboys origin players are out which will give the Knights a better chance of victory. What are your thoughts on this game, can the Knights break through for a win?
