Knights fight back to earn win over the Warriors

The nib Newcastle Knights have defeated the Warriors 24-16 at Moreton Daily Stadium, Redcliffe on Saturday afternoon.

The Knights fought back from an early 12-point deficit to score four tries and claim an important two points.

The win is the side's fourth of the season at the midway point of the campaign.

At the home of the Yuggera, Jinibara, and Kabi Kabi Peoples, the two teams entered the field for Indigenous Round.

The Warriors started fast scoring two quick fire tries inside the opening 10 minutes.

Adam Pompey and Viliami Vailea crossed over for the opposition to give the Warriors an early 10-nil lead.

The Knights wrestled back momentum and would hit back on the 23rd minute mark.

An inch-perfect kick from Jake Clifford found a flying Tyson Frizell, who planted the ball down to score Newcastle's first try.

On the stroke of half-time, Clifford attempted a field goal, but narrowly missed as the scores stayed at 12-all at the change of ends.

The Warriors took the lead early in the first half with a Shaun Johnson kick resulting in a try in the corner for Dallin Watene-Zelezniak.

Similar to the first half, the Knights provided the instant reply with a set play from a scrum close to the line paying off.

On the 52nd minute mark, Kalyn Ponga burst from the scrum and hit Enari Tuala with a superb short ball for the centre to crash over next to the posts.

Clifford converted to give the Knights the lead for the first time in the game.

Shortly after, Warriors winger, Marcelo Montoya, was sent to the sin-bin for a high shot on.

Looking for the crucial fourth try, Tuala was again on hand to score the decisive try.

With 12 minutes to play, Milford provided a deft kick and perfect bounce for Tuala to dive over.

The side will rest up with the bye next round before a home clash against the Penrith Panthers.
