Knights fans would’ve been far more pleased with their performance last week despite going down to the reigning premiers by one point.
On the back of the news that young hooker Dani Levi has committed to the club until the end of 2020, the Knights will be looking to play a consistent brand of football against a Dogs side who knocked off the Broncos last week.
The Dogs might be favourites for Cooper Cronk’s signature next season but will have to deal with Moses Mbye in the halves for the time being as he returns after a two week lay off.
Nathan Ross returns for the Knights as they look to add to their winning advantage at home over the Bulldogs while Des Hasler’s men will be hoping their forward pack can once again click into gear and march them over the line.
It could be an ugly game between these two sides on Friday night and if it does pan out that way, we’ll back the Dogs to win.
