    Newcastle Knights v Cronulla Sharks

    Date

    Newcastle Knights host Cronulla Sharks in a crucial match for both teams

    Sort posts by:

    Hunter Stadium, Newcastle, Sunday 3pm (AEDT)

    Last meeting: Round 22 2013 - Knights 18 bt Sharks 14 at Remondis Stadium

    Head-to-head: Knights 25 Sharks 16 drawn 1

    Referees: Gavin Badger, Alan Shortall

    TV: Delay, Channel 9 4pm

    Ladbrokes: Knights $1.50, Sharks $2.65

    Betfair: Knights $1.51, Sharks $2.88

    Michael Chammas writes: It's hard to know how the Knights will bounce back after the devastating injury to teammate Alex McKinnon. If their heads are switched on they should be too strong for an understrength Cronulla.

    Tip: Knights by 6

    AAP writes: The only two sides in the NRL without a win to their name meet in what sure to an emotional day at Hunter Stadium. The Knights have been rocked by the sickening neck injury sustained by young back-rower Alex McKinnon and will be desperate to dedicate the win to him. The Sharks welcome back Andrew Fifita after his suspension and they will certainly need him. The Knights were impressive in patches against Melbourne on Monday.

    Key: Jarrod Mullen and Darius Boyd's absence puts extra pressure on Tyrone Roberts and Michael Dobson, but there are signs the halves pairing is starting to gel.

    KNIGHTS: Matt Minto, James McManus, Dane Gagai, Joey Leilua, Akuila Uate, Michael Dobson, Tyrone Roberts, Kade Snowden, Kurt Gidley (capt), Willie Mason, Beau Scott, Robbie Rochow, Jeremy Smith. Interchange: Adam Clydsdale, Korbin Sims, David Fa'alogo, Adam Cuthbertson.

    SHARKS: Michael Gordon, Nathan Stapleton, Blake Ayshford, Ricky Leutele, Jonathan Wright, Todd Carney, Daniel Holdsworth, Andrew Fifita, John Morris, Sam Tagataese, Matt Prior, Wade Graham (capt), Chris Heighington. Interchange: Isaac De Gois, Tinirau Arona, Bryce Gibbs, Siosaia Vave, Tupou Sopoaga (one to be omitted).
