    All the result means is that they were desperate to win, and we weren't. Whole new ballgame next week.

    No disrespect Bill. That's a cop out. Pretty poor excuse if you ask me. We are round 9. Nothing to do with desperate at all. Parra have been very dissapointing this year specially after loosing key players in key positions and results over past 4 weeks have shown that.
    Parra have a firmidible forward pack who majority all played and started in Ball a year young last year.
    If anything todays game showed our own dificientcies.

    Lets see what our excuse is next week when we again play a very big pack Penrith.
    Credit needs to go to Parra. We should be better than that this time of year.!

    It happens in round 9 every year. Kids playing their last ever game of league have the game of their lives, and upsets happen.

    Whole new ball game in the finals.
    Penrith are always good in the finals because their franchise has so much experience in making the big junior games, but in recent years we have been as good or better than them.
    No reason we can't win these games, even if they beat us a few weeks ago in both grades.

    He got homesick and went home to Fiji. He was a massive unit but was from a Union background and didn't really make an impact even with Souths in the few games he played last year in 17s.

    They have had him on the left and right wings in different games and a bit of time at centre in one game I saw.
    He is an averaged size but very powerful and fast compared to others his age.
    All I've seen is a winger who takes all his chances to score. Can't remember him passing the ball at all.
    It's his first year at the club, so he could develop heaps of skills still, but just a pure athlete on the wing so far.

    Match previews: Juniors finals Week 1


    Newcastle Knights
    Fri 13 Apr 2018, 02:40 PM



    HAROLD MATTHEWS CUP

    The Club's Harold Matthews Cup side earned a spot in the first week of the finals after finishing fourth overall for the 2018 season, with notable wins over the St George Dragons (40-6 in Round 1), North Sydney Bears (52-0 in Round 3) and the Sydney Roosters (56-18 in Round 6).

    The Knights will come into the first week of the finals against the Penrith Panthers at 4.15pm this Saturday at Leichhardt Oval.

    The last time they faced off, the Panthers defeated the Knights 18-12 in a nail-biting display at St Marys Leagues Stadium.

    Head Coach Rory Kostjasyn has named a 17-man squad to take on the Panthers this Saturday.

    1. Logan RADZIEVIC
    2. Montell KURU
    3. Tyrone NEAN
    4. Harry Fraser
    5. Kodi CROWTHER
    6. Noah RYAN
    7. Jonah PEZET
    8. Lachlan WILLIAMS
    9. Riley JONES

    14. Zac MILLER
    Broc Hunt 15
    Max BRADBURY 17

    SG BALL CUP

    The Knights' SG Ball side finished this season in third place, and are well equipped for a tough finals series.

    With an impressive 7-2 record so far, competition top points scorer Jock Madden (128) will be aiming to steer the Knights to victory over the Penrith Panthers.

    The two teams last met in Round 5 with the Panthers defeating the Knights 32-16 at St Marys Leagues Stadium.

    Although the Knights put on a strong performance, a massive performance by Panther Matt Burton, who scored three tries and converted four goals, was too much for the Knights.

    Head coach Scott Dureau has named an 18-man squad to take on the Panthers at 5.45pm at Leichhardt Oval this Saturday.

    1. Starford TOA
    2. Toby MARKS
    3. Timanu ALEXANDER
    4. Bradman BEST
    5. Darcy HEANEY
    6. Jock MADDEN
