The Knights and Roosters face-off after both picking up important wins during the reduced Round 13 last week. Newcastle dominated bottom-placed Parramatta whilst Sydney Roosters won a brilliant contest against Wests which was still in the balance as the final hooter went. The Roosters now find themselves just two points outside of the top 4 and will be keen to keep the pressure on the sides above them. Newcastle are still chasing finals football and sit four points outside of the 8 with this a crucial game for the Knights. They have been poor of late but turned that around with a clinical display last week albeit against a poor outfit. This game could go either way but with the Roosters boosted by their Origin stars back in the fold, they can claim their third consecutive win.
