Sydney Roosters vs Newcastle Knights Preview
Roosters head coach Trent Robinson will be hoping his side can turn in a performance similar to last week’s dominant display against the Cowboys on Friday night.
Sam Walker was the star of the show, but there was a lot to like about Sydney’s pressure from start to finish as the tri-colours now set their sights on rejoining the top four.
The Knights, on the other hand, left CBUS with their tale between their legs after suffering a demoralizing 48-4 loss to the Storm.
Newcastle still has enough time left to make a late finals push, but the fact they own only one win over a top eight side this season is obviously reason for concern.
The Roosters already own an impressive 38-4 win over the Knights this year and it really wouldn’t surprise if we see a similar result unfold this time around.
Newcastle’s defence was downright awful at times last week, while there’s also concern for David Klemmer and Kalyn Ponga are both players failed to pass their HIA’s in the loss to the Storm.
With the Roosters really starting to find their mojo now, this could get ugly.
