    10-4 - try to Cory Denniss on 18 - kick missed.

    They are now saying Tom Starling went off for HIA - not Johns.

    14-4 after 29.

    Lillyman replaced by Amey after 27 minutes. That's a good spell for him.

    That would be Sam Keenan. He played a fair bit of juniors for the Knights and was one of the really talented group from South Newcastle that included guys like Fitz and Sione. He pretty much lost his spot in under 20s when Cogger and Lamb got old enough to play from memory, but was unlucky to lose his spot.
    Pretty similar size and build to Cogger but with a lot more pace - be about 23 I think.

    14-16 to the Knights after 50 minutes.
    Try to Randall.
    Starling hasn't come back from HIA, so I assume Randall is having to play nearly 80 at hooker.
    Lillyman replaces Saifiti after 46 minutes.

    Fulltime - 28-22 win.
    Good win.
    The two Jacobs got plenty of game time for fitness.
    We lost our hooker after 30 seconds and Randall, a utility who mostly plays halves and short minutes at hooker, had to play 80.

    Brave Knights Lift to Down Hastings-Inspired Sea Eagles

    An inspired performance from maligned half Jackson Hastings was not enough to see the Blacktown Workers Sea Eagles to a win in Round 10 of the Intrust Super Premiership, falling to the Newcastle Knights to the tune of 28-22.

    Making his fourth appearance in the Blacktown colours this season – and his third since being unceremoniously dumped from the Manly Warringah Sea Eagles' NRL outfit – Hastings oozed confidence throughout the two-point loss.

    But the brave Knights – who were forced to play with 16 men for all-but the entirety of the clash, following a sickening head injury to hooker Tom Starling from the match's commencement – overcame Hastings' individual brilliance to record their third win of the season.

    Returning to HE Laybutt Field for the first time since the side's Round 5 loss to the Wentworthville Magpies, Blacktown wasted little time in troubling the scorers.

    Upon the resumption from the Starling knock, Winger Vai Toutai scooted his way over the line to finish a well-worked backline shift with under a minute played – touching down for the first try of the afternoon with barely 60 seconds expired.

    Kicking into a strong breeze, Hastings saw the touch judges' flags into the air with his arrow-straight conversion, and Blacktown lead 6-0.

    Barnstorming prop Tof Sipley charged his way in to score (12th) as the Sea Eagles maintained their early momentum. Hastings' shot on goal was, unlike his first, waved away and the score remained 10-0.

    Toutai's fellow flanker Maliko Filino (29th) crossed to score the side's third-straight try, extending Blacktown's lead to 14.

    Needing a spark, the Knights turned to young five-eighth Jack Johns – the pivot playing a leading hand in sending Cory Denniss into score (18th) before working his way over the line (37th) for a try of his own, close to half-time, to lessen the deficit to just four points.

    Taking the momentum into the sheds, the Knights returned to action with all the running – and they hit the front courtesy of Chris Randall's try (49th) after the change of ends. Johns converted to take the Knights to a 16-14 front.

    Blacktown would level the scores courtesy of a penalty goal in the 54th minute, but again the Knights would hit the front when Johns responded in kind, an hour gone.

    Leading by two inside the final quarter, Brent Naden struck a telling blow with his 65th minute try, and again Johns converted to extend Newcastle's lead further.

    The conversion – the 20-year-old's third – sent his side out by an important eight-point margin.

    The Sea Eagles weren't done with yet, however, and a 72nd-minute try to Jacob Loko set up the grandstand finish.

    The usual centre, who found himself in the middle after coming off the bench, burrowed over from close range to keep his side in the contest, converted for a 23-22 scoreline.

    Time was not on Blacktown's side and when the Knights next got the chance to put the game to bed, they made no mistake; two minutes from full-time, centre Brayden Musgrove sliced through for the final try, resulting in a 28-22 win for Newcastle.

    It wouldn't surprize me if Johns, Cogger and Randall all did time at hooker and in the halves to make up for having no specialist hooker.
    Kostjaysyn would have been the perfect coach for that situation, being a half/hooker himself.

    Lillyman did 61 minutes - the first 27 and the last 34 minutes.
    Saifiti did 53 including the first 46 straight and a 7 minute stint in the second half.
