Wests Tigers vs Newcastle Knights Preview
Only four points separated the Tigers from the Knights when they met back in March and it would not be surprising if we get another high-scoring thriller again on Thursday night.
The scoreboard really didn’t do Wests any justice last week in their 36-28 loss to the Titans after Michael Maguire’s side came roaring home in the second half with three tries inside the final 20 minutes.
The Knights, meanwhile, came from behind themselves against the Raiders to snap a two-game skid with a convincing 24-16 win.
Newcastle’s forward line suffered another setback last week with Pasami Saulo injuring his leg, but there is good news on the Edrick Lee and Hymel Hunt front with both a chance at returning.
The Tigers could also look a little different this week with Tommy Talau’s suspension over, but even so, this does look Newcastle’s to lose with several key troops returning.
Newcastle made short work of the Bulldogs at Suncorp in last year’s Magic Round, and if they can knuckle down defensively like they did in the second half last week against Canberra, they should go a long way towards winning two straight.
