Knights in the news: ‘I had an x-ray yesterday on my pelvis’
There's been no shortage of interest in our boys this week.
Preparing for another big game, the nib Newcastle Knights attracted plenty of media attention and we've pulled together the best of it in case you missed any of the news.
Here's what our boys got up to this week:
WATSON ON THE MEND
Connor Watson is recovering from a torn groin.
It's an injury he's suffered twice over the past three weeks.
Missing the Warriors game on Friday, he could return for Penrith but looks more likely for Round 24 against Cronulla.
"I had an x-ray yesterday on my pelvis just to make sure I hadn't damaged that too. It's all clear. They are saying two weeks but I'm no better than 50-50 for the Penrith game," Watson told the Newcastle Herald.
"It's probably going to more likely be the Sharks game the week after, so I should definitely be back for that."
DEFENCE TO SET TONE FOR 2019
Danny Levi says the final fur games of the season will set the tone for 2019.
The Knights have conceded 513 points this season with a focus on defence the priority to close out the year.
"You see how many points we're leaking, it's just not good enough. It's not up to first grade standard," Levi said.
"We definitely want to win the games. To put out good performances in these last four games, it's a good stepping stone for next year."
Meanwhile, Levi is gearing up to face-off with fellow New Zealand international Issac Luke.
Luke plays his 250th NRL game this weekend.
"He was my childhood hero and it's always a good test to go up against him," said Levi.
"He's been really awesome this year so it's a big job for me at the weekend and I'm up for the challenge."
