Newcastle Knights - Need to Win Against the Odds
The Knights continued to struggle and were blasted out of the park at home last week, allowing the Broncos to score 36 points despite the absence of Adam Reynolds. When things get rough or they have some bad calls against them, the Knights all too frequently cave in. Adam O'Brien has a lot of work ahead of him, and he'll be hoping Anthony Milford can inject some much-needed energy into their stuttering offense.
