Friday night footy comes to you live from Newcastle tonight for the all-important Round 21 encounter between the home side and Brisbane. The Broncos returned to the winner's list last week with a hard-fought 18-16 win in Townsville, while the Knights pushed the Roosters for 70 minutes before succumbing 28-12. Both sides can ill-afford a loss at this point in the season with a logjam at the bottom of the eight on the competition ladder.
