    Penrith 14 - 0 Knights close to halftime.
    Knights have had a few chances but lots of dropped ball is letting them down.

    20 - 0 at halftime.
    oh dear.

    Sorry - fell asleep.
    we lost 32 - 24
    big second half, but not big enough.

    Mats is underway.

    Knights 0 - 0 dogs

    Knights 4 - 0 dogs
    Phoenix Crossland kicks a 40/20 and Teva Mataora gets the try in the corner on the next play.

    Knights 6 - 0 dogs
    Jock Maddern kicks it from the sideline.

    - - - Updated - - -

    12 - 0
    Jock Maddern does it all. Makes a line break, runs 20 to score in the corner, and kicks his second from the sideline.

    - - - Updated - - -

    Well the ball side only lost 2 games this season - both to Penrith.
    They lost by 6 points in round 2 and by 12 points in this final.
    Penrith nearly always beat us in finals games - it's been happening for years.

    - - - Updated - - -

    Young Knights defend their line 3 sets in a row. You just don't see that in under 16s. Outstanding effort.

    - - - Updated - - -

    Halftime - Knights 12 - 0 Bulldogs

    - - - Updated - - -

    16 - 0
    Try to Casey, set up by fullback Smith, who would be playing halfback for any other side. He is a quality playmaker.

    - - - Updated - - -

    18 - 0
    Maddern can't miss.

    - - - Updated - - -

    18 - 4
    18 minutes left.

    - - - Updated - - -

    18 - 10 with 14 minutes left.
    Dogs have had all the ball and field position

    - - - Updated - - -

    10 minutes to go
    Knights finally have the ball near the dogs line.

    - - - Updated - - -

    Bradman Best makes a break and runs 20 to score.
    22 - 10 with 8 minutes to go.

    - - - Updated - - -

    24 - 10
    Maddern slots his first easy kick

    - - - Updated - - -

    24 - 14 with 5 to go.
    Don't stop defending now boys.

    - - - Updated - - -

    24 - 16
    Dogs still need 2 tries in 4 minutes to beat us.

    - - - Updated - - -

    less than a minute left and Knights have the ball

    Sounds like the dogs had the ball for most of the game and we defended our arses off - and when we got a chance, we took it.
    Good win.
    Great defence at Matts level is pretty rare.

    - - - Updated - - -

    Fulltime
    Knights 24 - 16 Bulldogs

    The Mats side wasn't that impressive in the early rounds, but they have improved steadily all season.

    Knights v Parra grandfinal

    Parra have gone through the season and finals undefeated and won the minor premiership.

    Knights only lost 1 game, to Balmain in round 4, with a very different side to the one that played today.

    Parra must start favourites, but it's definitely a winnable game.

    how disappointing were the BALL side on saturday? completely out played ,the fulltime score flattered the knights considering it was 32-12 with 5-10 min to go. they were to conservative in attack and their obsession with playing a majority of their sets through the middle 3rd of the field was predictable and it was obvious the panthers had done their homework ,it almost bordered on robotic,and they had come so used to playing like that during the season they didnt know how to throw caution to the wind when it was required

    With a time lord in the side, if we don't like the result, just jump in the tardis and go back and change a few things.

    My tip for MOTM, Brock Gardiner or Jock Maddern.

    Camaraderie key for Harold Matts

    Thu 5th May, 05:28PM

    The Harold Matthews Newcastle Knights have been a revelation this year, winning nine of the ten matches they’ve played in and racking up an average of 34 points per game.

    This weekend they will be rewarded with a Grand Final appearance against the Parramatta Eels in Penrith, continuing the long tradition of success in the Knights’ junior ranks.

    While past Harold Matthews sides have had the benefit of outstanding individuals like Brock Lamb and Sione Mata’utia, head coach Mark Morrisey says this side is special because of the way they work as a collective.

    “They work together well as a team, there’s been a couple of individual performances, but week in, week out they chime in and work together as a team,” he told Knights TV at a training session on Wednesday evening.

    “I’m very proud of the boys, they’ve worked hard right through from the 2nd of December training three times a week.”

    Towering lock Brock Gardner is the captain of the side, and echoes his coach’s sentiment.

    “We’ve formed a great bond with each other, we’re all really good mates and just keen to get out there,” he said.

    “All the boys are pumped, it should be a great game this weekend and we’ll really enjoy it.”

    Morrisey is equally enthusiastic about the upcoming final.

    “Our captain Brock has been going really well, and our five-eighth Jock Madden and halfback Phoenix Crossland have really been the backbone of this success,” he explained.

    “There’s seven of these kids in the Emerging Blues side, and if we win this weekend that will help the numbers we get in to play State of Origin.

    “There’s some great talent coming through, we’ve just got to keep them.”

    SQUAD

    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. Timanu Alexander, 20. Sam Jones, 23. Jye Bieman-King, 24. Ethan Grine.

    Harold Matthews Grand Final 2016
    Parramatta Eels v Newcastle Knights
    Pepper Stadium, Saturday 7 May
    12pm – LIVE stream on NSWRL.com.au

    They’ve been the team to beat all year and rightfully find themselves in the 2016 decider – but will high expectations, coupled with the added pressure of aiding a disastrous week for the club, get the better of the Parramatta Eels?

    While the Newcastle Knights are themselves an impressive outfit, that question may be key to the result at Pepper Stadium tomorrow afternoon.

    Out of both the Harold Matthews and SG Ball competitions, the Eels are the only team that won every game, finishing the regular season with a huge 290 points differential tally.

    They won five of their nine regular season games by at least 42 points and carried their form into the finals series, beating Manly convincingly in Week 1 before edging out Penrith in a 13-12 thriller last week.

    The loss of William Kei – who finishes on top of the tryscorers list with 19 for the season – is likely to hurt the Eels; in an admittedly wet encounter at Leichhardt Oval, they scored the least points in a game this year without him last week.

    With Kyle Schneider leading the team from dummy-half, however, the Eels have done well to make the Grand Final and now have the chance to avenge the heartbreaking loss to Cronulla in last year’s decider.

    If they are successful, it will bring up an incredible 20 titles for the Eels in the competition’s 46-year history.

    On the other side are the Knights, who finished the regular season in third but progressed to the decider via an upset over the Sharks and an impressive showing against the Bulldogs.

    Parramatta, Cronulla and Newcastle were a step above the rest of the competition in 2016 and while the Knights were the only team to lose in the regular season, they can also boast a victory over a top three side – something the Eels haven’t yet had the opportunity to do.

    Both teams are strong defensively, with Brock Gardner steering the Newcastle ship from lock, while five-eighth Jock Madden is the second-highest pointscorer of 2016.

    Newcastle’s scoring potential will also helped with a strong game by fullback Matthew Smith and they can head into the clash with a slight underdogs tag tomorrow afternoon.

    It shapes as a thrilling encounter to kick off proceedings at Pepper Stadium – catch all the action via our live stream with Triple M’s Anthony Maroon and guest commentator Peter Jolly.

    I've been wondering all year if Matt Smith is any relation to Will Smith.
    They look a bit alike and have similar playing styles.
    Both quick, good playmakers, and really confident and willing to take chances.
    In the early rounds they gave Smith some time in the halves, but settled on Crossland and Maddern as the halves and put Smith at fullback, because he is too good to leave out.
    Some of the best tries I've seen this year (saw most of the home games live and watched all the highlights) came from Smith. He has a great cutout pass that sets up a lot of breaks and tries, as well as being good for a lot of line breaks when running from fullback.
    Maddern is a very composed little 5/8, and seems to be the go to guy when we have a chance on the last. He comes up with a lot of good options.
    Crossland has a long kicking game that is pretty good. Not in the same class as Brock Lamb at that age, but better than almost anyone else I can think of.
    Brock Gardner is a rangy lock forward who breaks a lot of tackles with a great fend and can make a lot of metres right up the middle of the ground because he can fend off other big forwards. He scored a couple of great tries in one game by muscling his way straight through the opposition forwards for 20 or 30 metres out.
    Teva Mataora is another worth a mention. He might be related to Sam, because he is a tall guy who looks like a 4 stone lighter version of Sam and has really good speed and footwork. Good winger.

    6-6 at halftime.
    Very even game.
    both sides defending well.
    our try came from Crossland doing it all himself.
    big Tom Baker butchered a try after making a break and running 50 metres. He just had to pass for the try to be scored, but he went himself and was held up over the line.

    Billy I thought the Mats was on at 2pm, and the midday game was the Ball Penrith and Steelers?

    Just cannot get the game to run thanks for the score.

    Gardner is a big loss at this time.
    He is a hard worker in defence, and we need that.

    He put that down short of the line.

    Still a chance Billy 14-16 with five to go. Ohh dear what a stuff up suitable for our NRL side.

    Darn held up! Why did the forwards all go one out? The Eels deserved going through the year undefeated.
