Newcastle host Brisbane in an intriguing encounter at McDonald Jones Stadium. The Knights began the season with two wins but have then faced very tough opposition that were too good for them. The Broncos on the other hand have the same record with two wins and two defeats but have lacked consistency in their performances with them only producing one very good performance when beating the Cowboys in Round 2. They were poor against Gold Coast last week and need to be better with ball-in-hand. Newcastle must also respect the ball more and look to get to a kick which they failed to do too many times in last week’s loss. This could be a tight, scrappy affair but the Knights could be the side to get back on track here.
