Knights v Sharks
Sunday, March 30 – 3pm
Things you need to know:
Football has been the last thing on the minds of the Newcastle club this week in the aftermath of the Alex McKinnon injury. It remain to be seen how the Knights. Andrew Fifita is back from suspension for the Sharks, while Nathan Stapleton comes in for the injured Sosaia Feki on the wing.
Reason to watch:
There will be no shortage of emotion at Hunter Stadium. The Knights will want to do it for McKinnon while Fifita makes his way back for his first game since signing with the Dogs. There are many, many subplots to this one.
Reason to turn away:
With only two wins between them, it's hardly been an auspicious start to the season for either club. The Bunnies were awful in the shock loss to the Tigers while the Raiders weren't much better in succumbing to the Titans at home.
"It's tough on all of us. We're friends and mates." – Newcastle coach Wayne Bennett on the impact McKinnon's injury has had on the club.
Where will Newcastle's head be after the events of the past few days? Give us an answer to that one and we're probably closer to finding a winner. Desperation won't be a problem, with both sides looking for their first win of 2014. Cronulla still have too many quality players missing. Knights by 2
