Where: Southern Cross Group Stadium
Josh Dugan coming back in will put pressure on the Knights as his combination with Widdop and McCrone cause all the teams in the NRL a headache.
The Knights are a young team and are getting better as the experience is growing with every game.
They’re are a lot more competitive than they were last year and Nathan Brown is trying to get leaders in his team to give the younger players some guidance.
The Knights will try hard but I don’t see them being competitive for about another three to four years.
Dragons’ experience and their dominant forward pack will be too much for the Knights.
