Presser Points: The coach reacts to the Rabbitohs defeat

The nib Newcastle Knights fought bravely against the Rabbitohs on Saturday night, but unfortunately fell short of the two points.

The Bunnies scored a four tries to two win over the Knights handing the red and blue their second loss on the bounce.

Head Coach, Adam O'Brien, spoke to the media after the loss and reacted to the performance at Stadium Australia.

"We were under pressure really early in the game," O'Brien said.

"We done a good job to keep ourselves in the game at half-time.

"There was some positive signs there. (I'm) disappointed with that early part of the second half but on a whole, pretty happy with some of the efforts from some individuals.

"We just got to keep picking ourselves up and getting on with it."

Early in the second half, the side lost gun centre Bradman Best to a foot injury.

The Coach provided an update on Best.

"It is disappointing to potentially lose Bradman," O'Brien said.

"We will have to scan him but it's not looking good at the moment."

The side will refocus for an important fixture against the Warriors next game.

O'Brien also said he's planning on having experienced troops back on board for the clash at home next Saturday.

"I expect to get Mitchell Pearce, Hymel Hunt, David Klemmer and potentially Kalyn (Ponga), so chuck those four in there, they are going to help," O'Brien said.

"I saw Junior pass to Kalyn at training for the first time this year last week.

"They looked good together, so it's exciting.

"They will naturally help us find some points and help take a bit of pressure of our defence."
