Watch: Fox Sports 2 – Live coverage from 6pm.
Whenever I played, I never blamed the ref, but now that I’m coaching, I do bag the refs a little. I don’t agree though, that the Knights aren’t getting a fair go from the referees.
The refs are human and are going to make mistakes. All fans agree that some weeks you get the rub of the green and some weeks, you don’t. It all evens out through the season.
The Roosters made a few mistakes last week. They’re coming of two losses and would have been working on these issues in training.
They would have tightened up these problems, so I don’t think the Knights will score a try at all in this game. I’d bet my house on it or maybe just 5.00 on my Unibet account.
Knights half Trent Hodkinson needs to step up and lead the troops. He has the most experience in the squad and needs to give the young Knights some direction.
He also needs to get the ball out to Dane Gagai, so he can keep getting these amazing line breaks.
For the Roosters, Jake friend had a couple of weeks off and he’s a player that leads and runs the forwards.
The Roosters have been missing this and having him back will make a massive difference.
Roosters will take this home very comfortably. Well I hope so, I have my house on it.
Newcastle Knights at $4.10
Sydney Roosters at $1.25
Tip: Sydney Roosters at $1.25
