Last Played: Knights v Dragons
St George Illawarra Dragons v Newcaslte Knights
Round 17, 2011
Newcastle squeezed home 14-10 at WIN Stadium in Round 17 last year against a Dragons side missing a handful of stars to Origin. The home side led 6-nil through a Reece Symonds try and Ben Hornby penalty goal before two tries in six minutes midway through the second stanza saw the visitors wrestle the ascendancy. Symonds’ second try with eight minutes remaining wasn’t enough to bridge the gap.
Wes Naiqama was a standout for the Knights, running 143 metres, while Symonds was a sensation with three line-breaks and two tries. Alex McKinnon, now at the Knights, made 23 tackles in the centres for the Dragons.
