    NYC Knights smash Titans


    Sat 29th April, 12:45PM


    The NYC Newcastle Knights staged a crushing 50-22 win against the Gold Coast Titans at Cbus Super Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

    A slow start didn’t deter the Under 20s, levelling the score 16-all at halftime only for the Knights to stamp their dominance in the second stanza piling on a staggering 34 points.

    Sam McIntyre got the scoring account open for the Knights before it was levelled up 4-all by Titans’ Tyronne Roberts-Davis.

    Gold Coast prop Moeaki Fotuiaka soon put the Titans in front 10-4 before the home side added another try 28 minutes in, a grubber from halfback Alexander Brimson being picked up by centre Daniel Brownbill.

    In the 35th minute, Knights forward Zac Hosking made the break before off-loading to fullback Matt Cooper to cross the line. The red and blue evened the scores just before halftime, big forward Pasami Saulo crashing over for the try.

    The scores locked 16-all going into the break.

    It took only two minutes into the second half for Knights captain Tom Starling to make a 60-metre run down the middle before dishing off to Saulo for his second try of the afternoon. The Knights lead 22-16.

    In their fourth try in eight minutes, Knights winger Mitch Andrews made a dash down the left side to finish off before Eddy Tuilotolava side stepped his way across the line in the 60thminute. Another precision kick from Gudgeon stretched the Knights lead to 34-16.

    Three minutes later Gudgeon added to the tally, swinging out wide to plant the ball over for another Knights try before the Titans ended the scoring drought with winger Tyronne Roberts-Davis adding his second for the day. The Knights lead 38-22.

    Knights’ McIntyre in the action again as he crossed over in the 73rd minute, team mate Hayden Loughrey able to have the last say of the day, with a quick one down the middle.

    The final score 50-22.

    Summary

    Knights 50 (T: McIntyre 2, Cooper, Saulo 2, Andrews, Tuilotolava, Gudgeon, Loughrey, G: Gudgeon 7/9)

    Starling having 4 try assists makes me think he could be a halfback and they should try him out as a 7
    He is an outstanding defender, but a guy his size just can,t defend in the middle in the NRL.
    He sometimes shifts to halfback during games, and he has all the skills to be a halfback, and I could see him going all the way as a half, but I just can't see him in first grade as a hooker.

    His only 6cm shorter then levi and he can wrestle big forwards like his 6 foot. His progression will need to rely on his defence id guess.

    When you see him live at games, especially senior games, he looks like a ball boy has wandered onto the field. He does the job though.

    Starling at hooker means we can win. I had a look at the stats and Starling has played 7 games for 5 wins and we lost the other 2 games by 4 points and 10 points. In the games Starling didn't play we lost by 26 and 42. He is our best in defence and our best in attack. With him we are competitive with any side - without him we struggle.

    Holden Cup Round 10 previews


    Wed 10 May, 2017, 2:00pm
    By Martin Gabor, National Correspondent‌‌, ‌‌‌NRL.com



    The players to watch and predicted results for Round 10 of the National Youth Competition.


    Knights v Raiders

    The Knights are 5-4 with a +2 points differential. The Raiders are 5-4 with a for-and-against of -2. In short, this is a toss of the coin sort of game.

    Newcastle's home ground advantage could be the difference with the Knights boasting a 3-1 record at McDonald Jones Stadium while the Raiders have managed just one win on the road.

    Knights coach Todd Lowrie has tinkered with his squad, moving Jack Johns to lock.

    Tip: Knights by 10

    Match Analysis

    NYC Newcastle Knights coach Todd Lowrie hopes the week off has refreshed his young team as they prepare to take on the Canberra Raiders at home this Sunday.

    “The boys had the whole week off so they’ve had plenty of time to freshen up, being we don’t play until Sunday,” said Lowrie.

    “It is about coming back in as a group and getting together and having a little bit of a look at the next couple of weeks.

    “We have got a few byes coming up so it has been a reasonably low key start to the week and we’ll ramp things up.”

    Just below the Knights, the Raiders are sitting in ninth place on the ladder with both teams five wins apiece so far this season.

    “They are pretty similar to us,” explained Lowrie.

    “We have always found Canberra tough; they always seem to play well against us whether it is at home or on the road.

    “They are very physical, always quite big, strong and aggressive.

    “Our boys certainly have to be up for the challenge in that part of the game if we’re going to be competitive against them.”

    On the back of his SG Ball Player of the Year award at the Knights junior presentation night on Monday, Matt Croker again gets his start in the number ten jersey.

    “He has done pretty well for us over the first couple of games,” said Lowrie.

    “He did well in his first game when he picked up Players’ Player and he played pretty strongly again last week so he’s earnt his spot in the team and he’s doing pretty well.”

    An unchanged starting 17, Jack Johns will again start in the forward pack.

    “He (Jack Johns) is still learningwhat he is doing, but he is doing a pretty good job of it,” commented Lowrie.

    “He is a handy bloke to have in the team because he can cover a few positions but he’s doing a pretty good job thrown into the forwards.”

    Where it will be won

    “We will definitely have to match Canberra’s aggression which is something that they’re generally known for,” said Lowrie.

    The Under 20s coach maintains defence continues to be a work in progress and needs to be on song against a tough Raiders side.

    “We can score tries as we’ve shown throughout the year but we’ve still got a bit to go in stopping some,” said Lowrie.

    “If we can get our defence sorted out, we should have enough points in us to get home.”

    Be interesting to know how they managed the hooking role.
    Birch was the only hooker named, and I can't see him lasting 80.
