In the sheds: Round 6
Following the win over the Tigers at Hunter Stadium on Sunday afternoon, Knights TV teamed up with Sione Mata’utia to capture the mood in the sheds.
While the team was pleased with the win, they were ecstatic with the 21,652 red and blue Members and supporters that packed into the stands to cheer them on.
It was only Jaelen Feeney’s third NRL game, and he was blown away by the support that was shown.
“It was my first game at home, and the crowd really got behind us,” he said.
“They just give you that little bit of motivation, that little bit of spirit to make that extra tackle, make that extra effort sometimes.
“So I’m thankful to the crowd for coming out, they really helped us out.”
Dane Gagai meanwhile had big wraps for the Knights’ forward pack that allowed him to play his natural attacking game.
“They made my job a lot easier, even though I was blowing out the back,” he said.
“I couldn’t single out one person, I think they just gave me a lot of energy when we came out in that second half.
“The Saifiti brothers, the Sims brothers, all our forwards just ripped in and the aggression they brought just made me want to step it up.”
Nathan Ross had another strong game out on the wing as well, scoring a try and saving one when James Tedesco broke away.
“What we have shown the last couple of games is fight,” he told Knights TV.
“We fought, we ground out a win and we got the two points at the end of the day.”
