Game. Set. Match. Akuila Uate just ran over his man there. He got over Curtis Rona and slammed it down.

Newcastle Knights 36-16

Korbin Sims with a one-on-one strip. The forward eyed the try-line but was roped in. He gets the penalty though.

TRY NORTH QUEENSLAND COWBOYS
Scored by Tariq Sims. Kick to come.

Welcome to a chilly Hunter Stadium, the venue for tonight's clash between Newcastle and North Queensland. Newcastle are entering desperation stakes with their season hanging by a thread. They'll be out to continue the Cowboys hoodoo outside of their home stadium. North Queensland come into this clash, with a few injury concerns due to origin but want to continue their rise up the ladder.

TEAM CHANGES:

NEW: Wayne Bennett has made the hard calls, with the Knights season slowly slipping away, he's shuffled the halves and forward pack. Tyrone Roberts drops to the bench, Kurt Gidley originally at hooker moves to halfback. Adam Clydsdale takes the hooker spot with Korbin Sims moving from the bench to prop. The bench is now Roberts, Houston, Tapine and Newton.

NQL: The away side have given their side a slight re-shuffle as well after origin injuries have claimed a few scalps. Curtis Rona takes the vacant centre spot after Brent Tate's injury while Glenn Hall comes in for Matt Scott to round out the starting thirteen. John Asiata comes onto the bench.
