Newcastle Knights vs Sydney Roosters Preview & Prediction

The Knights will be hoping to pile more misery on the struggling Roosters when the two sides clash at McDonald Jones Stadium on Thursday night.

After a promising start to the season, the Roosters come into this encounter having lost three of their last four games.

Last week was one of the Roosters’ bigger low moments of the last few seasons – they trailed the lowly Bulldogs 26-0 at half-time and had Dom Young sent off for a sickening high shot.

Although the Roosters fought back to make the game closer than it should have been, it was a shocking performance, with their bad habits of last season rising to the surface again.

James Tedesco and Sam Walker suffered nasty concussions in that loss and will be sidelined for this game, while Young is suspended, forcing a reshuffle in the backline.

Meanwhile, the Knights seem to have settled on the halves combination of Jackson Hastings and Jack Cogger and head into this contest following a convincing 30-10 victory over the Dragons last week.

Newcastle have now won eight of their last nine games at McDonald Jones Stadium dating back to last season and will be confident of extending that record here.

Adam O’Brien has named the same 17 players that got the job done against the Dragons.

VERDICT:

The Roosters burned us too many times last season and they are back into that sort of ill-discipline form again at the moment. Last week was horrendous from the Chooks and now they are missing three key backline stars.

Newcastle have a magnificent recent home record and they should be able to cover a small -3.5 line in victory here (Best Knights -3.5 line odds $1.77 with Dabble.)
