VOTE: 2020's top five try-savers

The act of saving a try is just as important as scoring them.

With the 2020 season now in the books, we look back at some of the incredible try-savers pulled off by our boys this season.

Scroll down to the bottom of the article to have your say on which was best!

Andrew McCullough on Brad Parker v Sea Eagles

It was the 54th minute of our tight Rd8 win over Manly, with the Knights 14-6 up but heavily on the back-foot, with the Sea Eagles camped on our line.

A neat pass from Cade Cust found a charging Brad Parker, who burst through a hole and looked certain to score.

Enter Andrew McCullough.

Finding himself defending in the centres, the hooker pulled off a miraculous one on one tackle to bring Parker down just centimetres from the line.

With the Knights holding on for a two-point win, this tackle proved crucial in sealing a result.

Mitch Barnett on Cody Walker v Souths

It was Rd10 at Bankwest Stadium, where the Knights raced to a 20-0 lead early in the second half.

However, the Bunnies came charging back to make the difference just two in the final stages and looked odds on to complete the comeback of the season.

In the 78th minute it appeared they would do just that, with Cody Walker taking the line on from close range.

The crafty No.6 stepped past Kalyn Ponga and charged into a gap, before meeting Mitch Barnett who came from nowhere to stop Walker firmly in his tracks, despite looking certain to score.

The Knights defence held firm, and the side went on to take a two-point win back up the M1 to Newcastle.

Edrick Lee on Roger Tuivasa-Sheck v Warriors

The scene was set in Rd1, with the Knights coming off the back of a pre-season focused on defence on a wet afternoon in Newcastle.

The 20-0 win was impressive, however it was this moment from Edrick Lee which typified the performance for the Knights.

With the game all but over in the 78thminute, Blake Green (still a Warrior at this point) found a flying Tuivasa-Sheck in a world of space and three players unmarked on his outside.

With the line wide open, Lee flew 20 metres in field to chop down RTS two metres out from the line in one of the tackles of the season.

The Warriors didn’t go on to score a single point in the game, giving the Knights the perfect start to 2020.

Mitch Barnett on Josh Reynolds v Tigers

The final score may’ve blown out in Rd2, however this one was in the balance for some time.

The Tigers were down by just four points in 22nd minute when Josh Reynolds received the ball on an ‘unders’ line, catching out Lachlan Fitzgibbon in the defensive line.

With the line opening up, Reynolds accelerated through the hole and looked certain to dive over, before being denied by an urgent tackle from Mitch Barnett.

The moment ended up being the springboard for the Knights to go on with the job.

Gehamat Shibasaki on Corey Oates v Broncos

Another game where the score-line ended up lopsided, however it could’ve gone a whole lot differently had Shibasaki not stopped this one.

The former Bronco was forced to tidy up after some poor edge defence saw Corey Oates storm down the sideline, stepping past Kalyn Ponga to put himself over the line.

However, he was denied by a determined Shibasaki, who raced 20 metres to make the try-saving tackle over the sideline and hold up the Origin winger.

The Knights went on to take the victory 29-6, with the Broncos' only try coming via a Xavier Coates intercept.
