Newcastle’s first win of the season looks like it’s just around the corner, with online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au pricing the Knights at $2.20 to break their duck against Wests Tigers next weekend in round 6.
That’s the good news but here comes the bad….the Knights are $6.00 to have their first win after round 10, or even worse, not at all in the 2016 season.
Nathan Brown’s men are the $6.00 outsiders away to Melbourne Storm this Saturday.
“The Knights may be struggling at the moment but if they go through the season winless, I’ll do a lap of Nobbys Beach in the nuddy,” said sportsbet.com.au’s Christian Jantzen.
