Pathways Report: Cup side earn third win in a row

In this week's pathways report, we take a look at the nib Newcastle Knights pathways teams in the Knock-On-Effect NSW Cup and Jersey Flegg Cup competitions.

The NSW Cup side were looking to continue their winning streak when they played the Sydney Roosters at Wentworth Park on Sunday.

Meanwhile, the Jersey Flegg Cup team hosted the Wests Tigers at Maitland Sportsground on Saturday.

See how each team fared:

NSW Cup - Knights 46-28 Roosters

The Knights NSW Cup side have made it three wins on the bounce with an 18-point victory over the Sydney Roosters in a high-scoring affair on Sunday.

After seven minutes on the clock, Dane Aukafolau got the ball rolling for Newcastle running into a hole created by halfback Adam Clune.

On the 20th minute mark, the Knights would have their second. Quick hands had Dylan Lucas breaking through into the back-field with fullback David Armstrong backing up in support.

The Roosters hit back through Siua Wong seven minutes later before the Knights responded with Laitia Moceidreke crossing over nearing half-time.

Ahead 18-6 at the break, Newcastle continued to score points in the second half with Aukafolau picking up the loose ball for his second of game five minutes into the second period.

The Knights were producing some enterprising attacking football. Riley Jones jumped out of dummy-half inside the Knights half leading to a try to Adam Clune next to the posts.

The Tricolours responded with two quick tries to reduce the margin to eight points with 25 minutes to play.

However, the red and blue would keep their foot on the pedal with Armstrong stepping through the Chooks defence for his second on the 59th minute mark.

Armstrong turned creator next for the Knights seventh of the game. A swift backline move had Krystian Mapapalangi diving over in his return game from injury.

Drew Hutchinson added a late try for the Roosters before Hymel Hunt confirmed the victory with a four-pointer only a minute from full-time.

The result is a third victory in succession for Michael Monaghan's squad and sixth of the campaign.

They will play the Western Suburbs Magpies ahead of the NRL game this Friday at McDonald Jones Stadium.

Jersey Flegg Cup - Knights 16-24 Tigers

The Jersey Flegg Cup team have gone down by eight points to the Wests Tigers on Saturday at Maitland Sportsground.

The Tigers opened the scoring three minutes into the game before Fletcher Myers notched the Knights first only four minutes later.

Newcastle were next to score when Jahoiyakim Afoa scored his first of the game.

The away side would take back the lead with another two tries before half-time to lead 14-10.

The Knights were again first to produce points following the break with Afoa getting his second of the game.

Wests would score their fourth soon after Afoa's second to take back the advantage before adding another try before full-time to take the two points.

The Jersey Flegg Cup side sit in 11th spot on the ladder after 16 games and will play the Sydney Roosters next start this Sunday at Wentworth Park.
