    22-0 at halftime.They haven't called Stone all game, but they have called Fermor a lot. According to NSWRL site, Fermor is on the bench.

    Return of Brock Lamb couldn't inspire ISP Knights


    Newcastle Knights
    Sat 9 Jun 2018, 05:00 PM



    The return of Brock Lamb from a fractured cheekbone wasn't enough to inspire the ISP Newcastle Knights to a win over the Wyong Roos on Saturday.

    The Knights were no match for a Wyong side packed with NRL experience.

    Former Australian Schoolboys halfback Mitchell Cornish pulled the strings.

    Cornish and Jersey Flegg playmaker Sean O'Sullivan had a hand in every try as the Roos ran the Knights across the park.

    Poasa Faamausili opened the scoring for the opposition, while Brendan Frei joined him six minutes later as the Roos upped the intensity.

    After the short kicking game of O'Sullivan and Cornish forced multiple repeat sets, the Knights couldn't hold out Dean Matterson.

    The younger brother of Roosters backrower Ryan Materson, Dean, crashed over for a double in the first half.

    Leading 22-0 at the break, the Roos continued the pain when Chris Smith crashed over.

    The forward is in his final season of his deal with the Roosters, before heading to Canterbury next season.

    It took 72 minutes but the Knights finally penetrated the defence when five-eighth Hayden Loughrey sliced through and Lamb added the extras but it was too little, too late.

    Match Summary:

    Wyong 28 (Tries: Faamausili, Frei, Matterson 2, Smith. Goals: Mantellato 4)
    d Knights 6 (Tries: Loughrey. Goals: Lamb 1)

    Stats for this week.
    Randall played 75 minutes and made 47 tackles.
    The commentators on the weekend implied that he didn't look like a fit athlete and he comes out of the real NRL. With him playing nearly 80 minutes and making 50 or more tackles week after week, you have to wonder what he could do if we put the guy into the fulltime squad and got him fit.
    Momoisea has played short minutes in his 2 games but I see he has over 96% tackle efficiency so far.

    Newcastle Knights v Warriors
    McDonald Jones Stadium
    Sunday, 17 June 11.45am
    Broadcast LIVE on Fox League


    The Knights' horror season continued on Saturday afternoon, with their 28-6 loss coming after a disastrous 62-0 loss to the Mounties a week prior.

    The Warriors are heavily favoured to claim victory in this fixture despite Newcastle's home-ground advantage, as they will be looking to continue their improved form after a dominant 36-6 victory in their last start.

    King Vuniyayawa has provided significant impact off the bench in recent weeks and is coming off a two-try performance in their Round 13 victory.

    The Knights have struggled on either side of the ball in 2018 and have scored just one try in their past two games, while conceding 122 points in their past three.

    With the worst defensive record in the competition (31 points on average), the Knights will be desperate to restore some pride in the hopes of climbing off the bottom of the competition ladder.

    It wasn't a bad effort.
    Warriors would have been years older on average than our guys, and some of the young guys were found wanting, but mostly we matched them. Saulo, Jones and Fermor all looked good for the future.

    Gusty ISP Knights edged out by powerful Warriors


    Newcastle Knights
    Sun 17 Jun 2018, 01:39 PM



    The ISP Newcastle Knights battled away in a close encounter with a big New Zealand Warriors side but couldn't quite record the results, going down 22-18 at McDonald Jones Stadium on a blistery Sunday afternoon.

    Despite a Warriors outfit stacked with NRL experience, a determined Knights found some much needed form to stun the visitors early, but sheer size and power played to the advantage of the Warriors as the visitors were able to grind out a four point win.

    An early penalty eventuated right in-front of the sticks for the visitors but some solid defensive plays from the Knights forced a dropped ball by the Warriors, and it was back in red and blue hands.

    In the eighth minute, a precision grubber by Brock Lamb found Pat Mata'utia on the left edge to gather the goods and ground the ball in goal for the Knights first try. The wind wasn't kind, and Lamb couldn't slot the extras. Knights led 4-0.

    Not long after, the Knights struck again via fullback Nick Meaney, who crashed over for the home side's second. Newcastle made it 8-0 after 15 minutes.

    The defensive edge from Newcastle was on show as Knights winger Tom Hughes scrambled to drag the Warriors over the sideline with the ball and gain back possession.

    Shortly before halftime the Warriors made their way onto the board; Joseph Vuna gathered the crumbs from a short grubber and rolled over the defence line to slam the ball in-goal. Tevin Arona added the extras, but it was Knights 8-6 into the break.

    In the second, a sneaky intercept by Hayden Loughrey could have seen the Knights record their third but the referee pulled it back, calling the five-eighth off-side.

    Back in Warriors hands, the visitors made the most of it as Blake Ayshford found a gap to tumble over the line 49 minutes in. Arona made no mistake and booted the conversion to see New Zealand take the lead, 12-8.

    Lamb didn't worry about the blistery conditions and confidently booted a kick down field to pull off a 20/40 and edge the Knights closer to the Warriors line.

    A strip gave the Knights a fresh six set before another penalty restarted the count. The Knights moved the ball left to right and finally to Hughes deep in the pocket slid over in the 56th minute. Meaney couldn't nail the conversion and the score line was locked at 12-all.

    But the Warriors returned fire minutes later via fullback Hayze Perham and the conversion was successful, the visitors back in-front, 18-12.

    New Zealand continued to fire as Albert Vete crashed over in the 65th minute to extend their lead 22-12.

    Knights centre Beau Fermor was the next to add to the tally as he charged through to plant the ball down for an easy four pointer. This time Meaney nailed the kick and Newcastle trailed 22-18.

    And it could have been a Knights thrilling finish, but the referee ruled an obstruction and the Warriors kept the Knights at bay for the final minute to take victory, 22-18.

    Match Summary

    Knights 18 (T: Mata'utia, Meaney, Hughes, Fermor G: Lamb 0/2, Meaney 1/2)
    Warriors 22 (T: Vuna, Ayshford, Perham, Vete G: Arona 3/4)
