Sydney Roosters 24-12

UNFORCED ERROR SYDNEY ROOSTERS

The Roosters are just rolling up the park here. Newcastle have run out of gas and it's coincided with the Roosters finding their groove. Could get ugly with just over fifteen left...

Scored by Roger Tuivasa-Sheck. Kick to come.

Roger runs off an inside line and it's just too easy there. That's the Knights of 2014 we're used to. Walked through that hole.

Newcastle Knights 6-4

UNFORCED ERROR SYDNEY ROOSTERS
Mitchell Pearce makes an unforced error.

Somehow in there it looks like the ref has ruled Pearce knocked it forward into a Knights player but it's clearly the wrong call, other way around.

Newcastle Knights 6-0

Newcastle utterly dominant so far but the Roosters are really shaky. Too many errors and very unconvincing attack thus far.

Newcastle Knights 6-0

UNFORCED ERROR SYDNEY ROOSTERS
Jared Waerea-Hargreaves makes an unforced error.

Geez, ordinary opening from the hosts. JWH spills it. Claiming a strip but it was ruled an error. Newcastle scrum 30m out.

Ahhh dear. Mini can't handle it and it's a Knights scrum on the Roosters 20m. Danger signs early for the premiers...

Newcastle's late changes - Josh Mantellato is OUT - he played NSW Cup earlier today at Henson Park. Kurt Gidley goes to fullback, Jake Mamo moving into Mantellato's vacant wing spot. Adam Clydsdale comes in at hooker, with Travis Waddell the new man on the bench.

Big night at Allianz Stadium for the visiting team - Newcastle have been taken over by the NRL today and with their future settled off the park, it's time for them to step up and have a go at resurrecting an otherwise poor season on the park. The Roosters will want a win to stay in touch with the competition leaders this evening and are the favourites, missing just two backline players to Origin. Team news coming up soon, kickoff 7:30pm.
