Round 7, Knights (Team List Here) versus Panthers (Team List Here) Match Preview Saturday 15th of April McDonald Jones Stadium, Newcastle, 5: 30 pm kick-off.
The Newcastle Knights will host the Penrith Panthers in game five, Round Seven National Rugby League Telstra Premiership in 2023; It doesn’t get more competitive in round seven as these two fight it out for another two points; the Knights coming off an impressive win and putting a stop to the Warriors winning streak, now its the Knights on the rise sitting just outside the top eight, an upset here would see them in the top eight, though, to beat the Panthers, you need a game plan that requires a serious strategy so if the coach for the Knights doesn’t have a masterplan he better get one!
No Jayden Brailey for the Knights and Liam Martin returns for Panthers which isn’t good for the Knights at all, Liam brings a much more aggressive defensive and offensive nature to the Panthers so it’s going to be a tough one for the Knights but on any given day its anyone’s game!
