Newcastle Knights vs St George Illawarra Dragons Preview
A win this week is crucial for the Knights if they hold any hope of moving back into the top six.
Currently sitting seventh, Newcastle find themselves with plenty of work to do after suffering a crushing 42-12 defeat at the hands of the Roosters last week.
Fortunately, the Knights run in to a Dragons side down on their luck after also suffering a blowout defeat last Saturday against the Raiders.
The Knights are set to welcome back Kalyn Ponga, Hymel Hunt and potentially even Bradman Best into the side – three huge additions that should make a world of difference on both sides of the ball.
Newcastle has been an outstanding betting play on the back of a loss over the last two seasons, playing to a 6-1 record head-to-head and a perfect 7-0 record at the line.
With a chance to still play a home final in three weeks’ time, take the Knights to cover what is a very generous line.
