    We didn't deserve to win. So many chances went untouched. Anyway good luck next year.

    very close loss.
    losing Gardner was a big loss at a bad time and their tries in the second half were both lucky I thought - one was a deadest no try.
    Anyway - good effort from the boys. lot's of positives in that.

    The biggest positive is that they are all strong defenders across the park. Having that sorted in the under 16s is a good place to be for this squad going forward into the under 18s and 20s.

    I think that last held up try if they shifted to the winger we would have scored and won but Ahwell chances come and go I guess.

    Both our held up tries would have been tries if the boys were a bit more experienced. Both guys had support and could have passed.
    No point crying over spilt milk, but Parra had most of the luck and the run of play.

    Most of our guys in the NSW train on squad did their chances no harm. Mat Smith, Crossland, Maddern, Gardner, Dark would all be strong chances to make the final 17.

    Courageous Harold Matts defeated in GF

    Sat 7th May, 12:45PM

    The Harold Matthews Newcastle Knights were defeated 16-14 by the Parramatta Eels in a thrilling Grand Final match at Pepper Stadium.

    It was tough contest in the middle from the outset with the Knights’ gritty display of defence managing to contain an energetic Parramattta Eels side in attack.

    Yet in the sixteenth minute it was Parramatta to score first via Charbel Taispale after solid groundwork from Hyrum Wichmann. Kyle Schneider slotted the conversion to make it 6-0.

    The Knights hit back six minutes later when halfback Phoenix Crosslands puzzled the defence with a dummy pass to score just right of the posts. Madden’s conversion tied up the score at 6-6.

    The teams went into the sheds level at 6-6.

    Seven minutes into the second stanza a Madden penalty goal, which bounced favorably off the post, gifted the Knights a two-point lead.

    But moments after Parramatta’s William Kei was over with Schnieder’s kick extending the Eel’s score to 12-8.

    Parramatta’s Taispale then bagged a double in the corner, this time kicker Schneider missing a challenging sideline conversion, 16-8.

    Just five minutes before full time, the game was turned up a notch when winger Timana Alexander scored, making it easier for Madden to convert his try by grounding it between the posts.

    With the score now separated by two points, 16-14, and just minutes left of play, the Knights fought courageously in attack.

    A dazzling run by Jock Madden looked like the Knights were in for a sure try, but the five-eighth was held up in goal.

    Despite a steely show of determination, the young Knights were unable to make up the two-point deficit and were defeated 16-14 by the Parramatta Eels.

    SUMMARY

    Parramatta Eels - 16 (T: Taispale 2, Kei G: Schneider 2/3)
    Newcastle Knights - 14 (T: Crossland, Alexander; G: Madden 2/2, P: 1)

    Team:

    1. Matthew Smith, 2. Teva Mataora, 3. Shaun Casey, 4. Toby Marks, 5. Bradman Best, 6. Jock Madden, 7. Phoenix Crossland, 8. Lachlan Pope, 9. Cameron Davies, 10. Kingsley Jennings, 11. Ross Haidle, 12. Joel Dark, 13. Brock Gardner. Interchange: 14. Tyran Ott, 17. Tom Baker, 19. Timana Alexander, 20. Sam Jones.

    Cowboys feeder side the Townsville Blackhawks have won both the 16's and 18's QLD comps. When do the national games get played?

    He was simply asking a question regarding the QLD leg on the comp, give it a break lol. Also yesterday you were repeating what he said like a middle-schooler. There is this really weird tension between both of you and it's giving me the s**ts, deadset grow up.

    I'll stick up for anyone if it's warranted, you're giving this place a 'you against us' mentality with cowboyman and it is hijacking every thread.

    Nope I'm genuinely intrigued because if they are in sydney I'd very much like to get to the games now that I'm in sydney.

    This is the thread for 16's and 18's reps so thought it would be noteworthy to know which sides play each other in the national finals as well.

    Think you have some maturing to do young ryan. Very tiresome.

    They usually play them the week after the comps finish - so next weekend you would think.

    They wouldn't be played before the double header I'd assume which is why I thought they would be down in sydney.

    Four Knights made the final NSW under 16s squad.
    Interchange forward Tom Baker was the bolter. Must have been that big run where he was held up over the line.
    Gardner, Crossland and Maddern made the team. I'd have been surprized if they didn't to be honest.
    Joel Dark is unlucky I think.

    I dont thinks its the team stage yet, they picked 26 players named GF day and that will be cut to 18 players in a few weeks and then the final 18 players go into camp prior to origin 1. Fingers crossed for the knights boys

    surprised to see jayden hocking from the BALL side not make the nsw 18s squad , he was by far the teams most consistent forward and i reckon he would have easily made the most linebreaks , he's got size ,good foot work and ball playing ability, i think jones was lucky considering he played a handful of games and wasnt a stand out

    I think it's obvious that Jones isn't as fit as he could be yet, but he played for NSW under 18s last year and was close to the best forward.
    Even half fit, when he went for a run in our ball side, he was bloody hard to stop, and was up playing the ball in a wink of the eye.
    He has been back for a month or so, so he should be getting a bit of fitness now.
    He hasn't had a brilliant year this year, but he's been our best for the last couple of years.

    6 Knights through to a 27 man squad - Kurtis Dark, Brodie Jones, Brendan O'Hagan, Tom Starling, Brayden Musgrove, Pesami Saulo
