Highlight: The battle for positions in the backline with a certain Australian Kangaroo that can’t even make the team.
Lowlight: Hooking role might be a problem for Newcastle who have had their fair share of replacements for Mr. Buderus.

Call me crazy but there is a clugginess to the Knights. I don’t even know if that’s a word but that’s what pops into my head when I picture Newcastle. Maybe it’s the jerseys, but I just feel like they’re missing a trick not playing some of their boom rookies. They could come out and thrash the Warriors on Saturday, but I think Rick Stone will have some tough decisions to make as the season goes on.
