NRL match preview: Knights vs Tigers

Sunday 8th June
Hunter Stadium

Knights: Darius Boyd, James McManus, Dane Gagai, Joey Leilua, Akuila Uate, Jarrod Mullen, Tyrone Roberts, Kade Snowden, Kurt Gidley (c), Willie Mason, Beau Scott, Robbie Rochow, Jeremy Smith. Interchange: Adam Clydsdale, Korbin Sims, Chris Houston, David Fa’alogo

Coming off a disappointing loss to the Warriors in Auckland the Knights take on the Wests Tigers in what is a must win for the Newcastle side.‏

The Knights have faced some off field dramas in the past month and their issues off the field have seemly affected their form on the paddock.

If they are to turn their rocky season around they will need to produce a flawless performance against a Tigers side sitting just inside the top eight.

A narrow loss to the Broncos last round will see the Tigers come into this game hungry for a win to keep their solid 2014 season going.

With a powerful back line and the continuing growth of Blake Austin off the bench , I expect the Tigers to prove too classy for the Knights.
