Preview

The Knights head back home buoyed by their third win of the season after a courageous win over the Dragons last week.

A win over a top eight side is sure to give them the confidence to go back to back this week over a Warriors side reeling after four losses on the trot.

The Knights’ forward pack led by the Saifiti brothers were unstoppable last week combining for 351 metres and will look to carry that momentum forward in front of their home crowd. The Warriors, who will be without Bodene Thompson for the remainder of 2017, will look to get back to the basics by completing their sets and making their metres. When given the opportunity, they should have too much poise and class in attack for a side that has missed more tackles than any other team in 2017.

The Warriors enter the game as favourites however there is value in the Knights camp. With a little bit of confidence behind them, can they chalk up two in a row?
