Young Knights looking for redemption

After a disappointing loss to the St George Illawarra Dragons, the Newcastle Knights under 20’s are looking forward to returning to Hunter Stadium on Saturday for their Round 6 game against the Penrith Panthers.

The Knights take on the Panthers, who after defeating the North Queensland Cowboys on the weekend, have won five games straight this season.

“We were disappointing and I am not sure whether it was the conditions or the mindset of our guys,” NYC Manager Craig Smith said.

“We started poorly and they jumped on us from the get-go and we never really got back in the game.

“We were always chasing, which in the heat and the way we played is always going to be very tough.”

Smith said Sunday’s loss was a step back for the Knights after strong performances in Rounds 3 and 4.

“The last couple of weeks we have been close without getting wins,” he said.

“The effort wasn’t quite there for our guys on Sunday and we paid the price.

“The Dragons' desperation showed and it seemed to be an all round off day for the team.”

Smith said they will be looking for a much better effort from the team when they run on the Hunter Stadium on Saturday in pursuit of their first win at home.

“We expect a lot of these guys being that this competition is designed as a stepping stone to the NRL,” Smith added.

“While we were fundamentally poor against the Dragons, the one positive we can take out of it is that we have another game this week.

“We have a chance to redeem ourselves and that will probably be there way we look at it.”

The Knights are hosting all three grades at Hunter Stadium on Sunday.

NYC Knights brought undone by Panthers

Saturday 13 April 2013 3:55 PM


The Hunter Ports Newcastle Knights NYC side were defeated 30-14 by the Penrith Panthers at Hunter Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

Looking for their first win at Hunter Stadium this season, the Knights got off to an ideal start with hooker Eddie Proudler burrowing his way over alongside the uprights inside the first five minutes. Proudler stepped up to convert his own try to give the Knights a 6-0 lead.

The Panthers hit back 10 minutes later when a nice short ball from Daniel Foster found Bryce Cartwright who burst through the Knights’ defensive line to score. Cartwright converted his own try to make it 6-6 after 14 minutes.

Penrith looked certain to extend their lead when Dallin Watene-Zelezniak found his way across the try-line, but the winger made the critical error of stepping on the dead-ball line as he looked to run the ball around underneath the posts.

The Knights had another scare a short time later when Cartwright barged his way over out wide, only to lose the ball as he attempted to ground it just inside the corner post.

The Panthers eventually did hit the front in the 34th minute after Kierran Moseley burst through a gaping hole in the Knights defence on his own 40 metre line.

Moseley got 20 metres out from the try line before finding Tony Satini in support who managed to cross in the corner. Cartwright was unable to add the extras and the Panthers took a 10-6 lead into the halftime break.

The visitors extended their advantage right after the interval following a line break from Nikko Roberts, that put Watene-Zelezniak away down the left wing to score. The conversion was missed by Cartwright and the score remained 14-6.

The Panthers were in again in the 55th minute when winger Kieren Moss scored courtesy of an offload by Iszah Yeo. Cartwright was again off the mark with his conversion as the Panthers lead 18-6.

A short time later Cartwirght scored his second try of the match when he spun out of a tackle and was able to plant the ball down out wide on the right. He was unable to convert his own try and Penrith lead 22-6.

The Knights kept their hopes of a late comeback alive when Lachlan Shipard slipped a one-handed offload out to Jake Mamo to score in the corner. Shipard was off-target with his conversion attempt and the score remained 22-10.

However, with less than 10 minutes remaining Yeo burst through a hole out wide to score the Panthers’ sixth try of the match. Cartwright missed another difficult conversion attempt and the score line read 26-10 in favour of the visitors.

The Knights cut into Penrith’s lead in the dying minutes when Matt Hay found himself on the end of a precise cut-out pass and fought his way over the line to get the ball down. Shipard was unsuccessful with his conversion attempt as the Panthers held on to a 26-14 lead.

The result was put beyond doubt when Satini scored his second try of the match with an athletic one-handed put down just inside the corner post to complete a 16-point victory for the visitors.

Penrith Panthers 30 (T: Cartwright 2, Satini 2, Watene-Zelezniak, Moss, Yeo. G: Cartwright 1/7) defeated Newcastle Knights 14 (T: Proudler, Mamo, Hay. G: Proudler 1/3).
