Newcastle Knights enforcer Beau Scott is eager to return to the field this Saturday after serving a one-match suspension incurred during the last game of the State of Origin series.
The Knights host the Gold Coast Titans, who are sitting two points ahead on the competition ladder, for the Men of League Heritage Round clash at Hunter Stadium.
“I am looking forward to getting back onto the field and hopefully we can get a win this weekend," he told the media on Wednesday.
“No being able to be a part of it, it’s harder to watch on the sideline.
“I guess we just need to keep plugging away and turn up at training and have a good attitude on the weekend."
Scott also assures a niggling shoulder injury suffered in his last match for the Knights against the Broncos will have no impact on his performance this weekend.
“I got through training and it will be alright for this weekend,” he said.
After two matches on the road, he believes the team will gain a significant boost from being in front of its home crowd.
“We have a lot of things to play for including the fans that turn up every week especially at our home games,” Scott said.
“Kurt is leaving and he’s been a long serving member of the Club over a lot of years, so we need to send him out on a bright note.
“We will be doing that this weekend."
As for Saturday's opposition, the Titans have a shorter preparation after playing on Monday night, but the team refuse any media suggestion it makes the match sway in their favour.
“We wont be taking them lightly. You can’t prepare for anyone lightly these days,” Scott said.
“We definitely won’t be doing that this weekend.”
