Sunday afternoon sees two out of contention sides doing battle, when Newcastle face St George.
It’s the traditional ‘Old Boys’ day at Newcastle, an occasion where they are normally very hard to beat, however given their record against the Dragons they will need to call on all of their resources if they are to prevail.
St George have won a staggering 13 of the past 15 matches at Newcastle, including the past 9 clashes straight.
Newcastle are in fact winless at home against the Dragons since 2003, and have also lost the past 4 clashes against them at all venues.
Low scoring has also been a feature, with just 1 of the past 6 encounters at this ground exceeding 40pts.
As poor a record as this is, the Knights have won 11 of their past 14 matches on ‘Old Boys’ day and perhaps at my peril I’m going to go with them here to finish a poor season on a high.
