Saifiti: 'We’re going to turn up, that’s for sure'

Old Boys day is a game the nib Newcastle Knights players hold in the highest regard.

That's why Daniel Saifiti is confident of his team putting on a show this Saturday.

In the final game of the season, the Knights return home to McDonald Jones Stadium for their Round 25 clash with St George Illawarra to play in front of what is expected to be a bumper crowd.

Having knocked off Penrith in Round 23, the prop is confident his troops can rally in front of the Club greats and put on a show.


"We spoke about our last three games, we were playing three top eight teams and hoping to get a couple of scalps," Saifiti said.

"We did against the Panthers but the Sharks didn't go to plan.

"To get the Dragons this week, it's going to be a good day and we're expecting a big crowd.


"Hopefully the boys turn up."

While the Knights suffered a 38-12 loss at the hands of Cronulla on the weekend, the score line doesn't do the game justice.

The Knights had a player sin-binned in the first half and lost both Lachlan Fitzgibbon and Connor Watson to injuries.

The Dragons also had a loss on the weekend, going down to Canterbury-Bankstown 38-0.

While the Dragons sit sixth on the ladder, the Knights are no longer in finals contention which makes them a danger team for the big red V.

"We're going to turn up, that's for sure," he said.

"It's Old Boys Day, it's the last round. We've got nothing to lose.

"We're going to hopefully turn up for the fans."
