Korbin returns for Warriors clash

Newcastle Knights forward Korbin Sims is eager for the Round 14 match against the New Zealand Warriors at Hunter Stadium on Saturday.

After matching up against the Warriors earlier this season in Round 4, he knows exactly what to expect from the New Zealand based team. 

“They are going to be nice and physical in the middle of the park,” he said.

“That’s where our game is going to have to be won.

“I know if I put my body on the line, our backs are going to be really appreciative of that and are going to hopefully finish off the end of the game.”

In other news, Sims was pleased to welcome new teammates Mitch Barnett and Brendan Elliot to the Knights.

The pair arrived at the Club on Wednesday after signing contracts for this season and 2017.

“I’m sure we will get to know them a lot closer in the next couple of days as they get around and meet the boys,” he said.

It’s set to be a big occasion at Hunter Stadium on Saturday with the Knights partnering with the Mark Hughes Foundation, an organisation Sims and his teammates are proud to support.

“We want everyone to either buy or wear their Mark Hughes beanies this weekend to raise awareness for brain cancer awareness with Mark Hughes,” he said.

“He’s doing a wonderful job there with Paul Harragon helping out too.

“He’s a legend of the Club and needs a lot of support with what he’s doing with his cause.

“It’s a great initiative.”

The Newcastle Knights are giving people 50,000 reasons to be at Hunter Stadium on Saturday. Five lucky contestants will be selected from the crowd to kick for cash with a portion of the $50,000 prize pool going to the Mark Hughes Foundation.
