Newcastle Knights vs Brisbane Broncos Preview

The Knights would have hoped to have been higher on the ladder by this point in the season, but Adam O’Brien’s side still has to feel pretty good about the fact they remain a chance to play finals with give games remaining.

Last week’s 34-24 win over the Raiders could turn out to be a season-defining win for Newcastle as they now set their sights on the bottom-feeding Broncos.

Enari Tuala led the way last week with a hat-trick, but O’Brien has to be impressed with the way his side came together to limit Canberra’s opportunities.

Brisbane, meanwhile, will fancy themselves a chance at picking up two straight wins following their blowout victory over the Cowboys last week.

The Broncos did extremely well to inflict most of the damage in the first half, but they now find themselves at a serious disadvantage with Katoni Staggs ruled out for the remainder of the season with a knee injury.

For Newcastle, there’s finally some positive news on the injury front with Mitchell Pearce set to rejoin Kalyn Ponga and Bradman Best for a very favourable run home.

The Knights face the Sharks, Bulldogs and Titans before another clash against the Broncos in Round 25 – a welcome sign for Newcastle fans after enduring so much heartache this season.

With their stars fit and the top eight in reach, a Knights victory looks likely.
