    Our goal-line defence was outstanding

    Not sure on the final number but at halftime the Raiders had over 30 tackles in our 20m zone for just 1 try

    We kept them scoreless in the second half which is really satisfying

    Birch played 73 minutes and made 35 tackles - good job for a guy who is not really a hooker.

    Ralph had an incredible 2 tries, 3 line breaks, 2 try assists and made 30 tackles.

    It was a great win. The Raiders back three were allowed to get away with anything in tackles and play the ball. Man playing the ball constantly pushed, kneed, shoved away after playing the ball with nary a penalty. Reflecting soe of the 'skills'of their coach no doubt.

    Second half just blew them off the paddock. Dennis was particularly strong, Josh Ralph scored two good individual tries and Hosking lead the forwards well.

    Half time lead was 8-6 after a very questionable try was awarded to the Raiders in the last minute or two.

    NYC Knights storm home against Raiders


    Sun 14th May, 11:03AM

    Back-to-back wins for the NYC Newcastle Knights as they put on a dominant display to defeat the Canberra Raiders 32-6 at McDonald Jones Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

    The Knights controlled most of the first half until Canberra scored in the final minute but Newcastle managed to storm home in the second stanza with 24 unanswered points.

    The first points came 10 minutes in as Knights forward Jack Johns off-loaded out wide to Kainoa Gudgeon as he dived over. Newcastle lead 4-0.

    In the 20th minute some flare on the right from centre Heath Gibbs awarded the Knights their second before a try in the final minute of the first half, Raiders’ Jack Murchie on the end of a precision grubber.

    The Knights led 8-6 into the break.

    In the 48th minute, Knights forward Zac Hosking crashed over for the try before minutes later it was Josh Ralph’s turn, grounding it through the middle to stretch the Knights lead 20-6.

    Newcastle kept the momentum going and it was forward Sam McIntyre to add to the tally with Gudgeon booting the conversion for the home side to lead 26-6.

    Ralph crashed over for his second with ten minutes to go, sealing the Knights win 32-6 over the Raiders.

    Summary

    Newcastle Knights 32 (T: Gudgeon, Gibbs, Hosking, Ralph 2, McIntyre, G: Gudgeon 4/6)
    Canberra Raiders 6 (T: Murchie, G: Niko 1/1)

    The best part or the win was they did it without Starling.
    A lot of these guys will benefit from having to do more without Starling.

    So 17 year old Matt Croker made 142 metres as starting prop in his 3rd game of NYC.
    That is pretty special.

    Lowrie praises NYC defensive effort


    Mon 15th May, 12:00PM


    NYC Newcastle Knights coach Todd Lowire couldn’t be any happier with his side’s effort on the weekend, hailing their defensive performance as probably the best he’s seen all year.

    The Under 20s recorded back-to-back wins to climb to sixth on the Holden Cup ladder.

    After the NYC’s 50-22 thrashing of the Gold Coast Titans a couple of weeks ago, the team came home to do it again, this time against the Canberra Raiders.

    “It's the second week in a row they’ve run away with it in the second half,” said Lowrie.

    NYC Newcastle Knights coach Todd Lowire couldn’t be any happier with his side’s effort on the weekend, hailing their defensive performance as probably the best he’s seen all year.

    The Under 20s recorded back-to-back wins to climb to sixth on the Holden Cup ladder.

    After the NYC’s 50-22 thrashing of the Gold Coast Titans a couple of weeks ago, the team came home to do it again, this time against the Canberra Raiders.

    “It's the second week in a row they’ve run away with it in the second half,” said Lowrie.

    “I thought the first half they laid the platform really well, it was only 8-6 at half time but we were really in control.

    “Our goal line defence was probably the best it’s been all year and although we were only leading by two, we were in control which is a good thing coming off the bye last week.

    “We gave them a bit of time off and they all turned up with the right attitude and we went well.”

    The NYC coach said Canberra threw everything at them.

    “They came out really fiery in the second half but to our boys' credit they held them off early in the second half and came over the top of them in the back end,” explained Lowrie.

    Lowrie praised an impressive showing by halfback Josh Ralph, who scored a double.

    “(Josh) Ralph got a couple, he does some good things, he’s quite a talented player,” Lowrie commented.

    “He has got some skills and he found his way through the line which is good for him.”

    The NYC Knights will hope to continue that winning feeling when they take on the Penrith Panthers back at home this Sunday.

    “We have Penrith (Panthers) who have been the competition leaders for a long time in the 20s,” explained Lowrie.

    “They are always leading the comp; the Panthers are definitely the best team in the 20s so it will be a good test for us.”

    “Although we’ve had back to back wins, we’ve played teams that are similar to where we’re sitting on the ladder.

    “It will be a good test to come up against a team who are sitting well above us and find out how we’re going.”

    Make sure you get to the game this weekend, because it will be more than 40 days until we return to play at McDonald Jones Stadium.

    Imagine how good a side we could put together with Stone, Meaney, Lamb, Cogger and Starling added to the guys who are standing out in this squad now.

    10 tackle breaks from McIntyre and 164 metres.
    The week off seems to have got him back on track with the big numbers.
    Changing to the forwards with the extra workload will take some getting used to, with the weekly grind, but he obviously has a huge motor and is very strong for an 18 year old.

    Watching the 20s game Croker had a big pad on his jaw so he might be resting his jaw or training with nsw

    Holden Cup Round 11 previews


    Wed 17 May, 2017, 11:00am
    By Martin Gabor, National Correspondent‌‌, ‌‌‌NRL.com


    Knights v Panthers

    Newcastle will take plenty of confidence into this one given they defeated the Panthers in the corresponding fixture last season. The Knights have won two on the trot and look slick every time they get near the line.

    Penrith extended their unbeaten run to nine matches following a comfortable win over the Warriors that saw Wayde Egan become the first hooker in NYC history to score four tries in a match.

    Tip: Panthers by 12

    Match Analysis

    NYC Newcastle Knights coach Todd Lowrie hopes his side can use momentum from back-to-back wins when they take on the Penrith Panthers at home this Sunday.

    “The last two weeks have been good,” Lowrie commented.

    “We have played teams who are similar to us on the ladder and we’ve performed really well against them, so it's a big challenge for us this week against the Panthers who are leading the comp and have been all year.

    “It definitely does help having a settled team but it’ll be a real test for us this week.”

    The Knights Under 20s welcome back Brayden Musgrove to the starting side in the centres.

    “He has been really good for Maitland the last couple of weeks so he deserves his chance to come back in,” said Lowrie.

    “Brayden has been really good for us for most of the year, unfortunately when Cory (Denniss) dropped back Brayden was the one who missed out.

    “I have got no doubt at all he’ll come back in and do a really good job for us and he’s a big part of our team.

    “Cory looks to be playing Reserve Grade which is good, he’s been good for us the last couple of weeks and deserves his chance to go back up.”

    The NYC coach maintains whilst they’ve had a couple of dominant weeks, they have identified some areas for improvement.

    “We have had a couple of big wins the last few weeks so we’re doing some things well, but there’s still some big areas of improvement which the guys have identified,” Lowrie explained.

    “The things that we haven’t been doing so well, we need to make sure we fix them up because when you play against the good teams you need to have a lot more right than wrong.

    “We need to be a little more dominant in the ruck, our ruck speed has been far too quick lately.

    “Our scramble in defence has been quite good but we shouldn’t have to be in a position where we have to do so much of it.”

    Where it will be won

    As usual, it is goal line defence that will be in the spotlight for Round 11.

    “It's a big area of improvement that we have identified but it's also an area that we’ll need to be good in against these blokes this weekend,” admitted Lowrie.

    “The Panthers put a lot of points on us earlier in the year, so the boys know the defence has to be really good if we’re going to give ourselves any chance."

    Cogger is the X factor. If he plays and is anywhere near his best he will be the best player on the field by a mile.
    Last year we saw Lamb win several NYC games almost by himself.
    A fully fit Cogger could do that too.

    Knights are 1-17 - so Cogger not playing.
    We are down 6-0 after a few minutes.
