NRL 2020: Warriors vs Newcastle Knights, live stream, live blog, live scores, highlights, SuperCoach


Newcastle was slow to get off the mark in Townsville as they run out yet another spine, as the Warriors look to continue their impressive run of upsetting higher teams.

The Knights lost five-eighth Blake Green to a serious knee injury last week. He joins Jayden Brailey, Andrew McCullough, and Connor Watson on the season-ending list.

Mason Lino comes into the halves to join Mitchell Pearce.

They take on the Warriors who scored a spirited win over Canterbury last week.

Round 16

It took the Warriors less than 10 minutes to open the scoring in Townsville when Adm Pompey dived over in the corner.

NRL 2020: Brisbane Broncos vs St George Illawarra Dragons, live stream, live blog, live scores, highlights, Round 15, SuperCoach, Anthony Seibold


St George Illawarra might not have a coach at the moment but the Dragons made it two wins in a row by beating the Broncos by a slim margin in a scrap at Suncorp Stadium.

A week after beating the Eels to send Paul McGregor out a winner, the Red V held off a gallant Broncos outfit to win 28-24 in the Queensland capital.

The win may be soured somewhat with Korbin Sims limping off the field in the dying minutes with what could be a serious injury.

Brisbane winger Richie Kennar dropped a Dragons kick in the opening two minutes and then the Red V scored on the next set, crossing the stripe through Josh Kerr before the Broncos had even touched the ball.

Round 15

Then Corey Norman simply waltzed over a couple of minutes later to make it 12-0 after six minutes.

NRL Round 11 teams and KFC SuperCoach NRL chat


An old head and a dry sense of humour.

They’re two things that Jack Johns and South Sydney coach Wayne Bennett have in common, according to Johns’ Rabbitohs teammates.

Jack, the son of former premiership winning playmaker Matthew Johns and nephew of Immortal Andrew Johns, has been named to make his NRL debut for the Redfern club against Canberra on Saturday night.

Rabbitohs forward Mark Nicholls said that while Johns could be a larrikin off the field, just like his father, the 22-year-old had earned his place in Bennett’s top 17.

“He’s a character. I haven’t had too many beers with him, but he makes the boys laugh and that’s what Matty and Andrew do week in and week out on TV,” Nicholls said.

“He has a bit of a dry sense of humour and a bit of an old head on him for a young fella. But he’s a great trainer, he rips in at training and he’s got a bit of skill about him as a back rower. He came through the juniors as a five-eighth. He’s got a bit of skill and he’s tough too. He won’t let anyone down this weekend.

Forward Bailey Sironen revealed Johns’ sense of humour doesn’t always go down that well.

“He’s hit and miss. Sometimes he’s hilarious and sometimes not so much. He is always coming into training really positive. He’s always got a funny thing to say whether it’s to Wayne or one of us. He keeps the spirits really high at training,” he said.

Johns, 22, the older brother of Melbourne Storm player Cooper, was named on the bench after forward Ethan Lowe was ruled out indefinitely with a neck injury. Centre James Roberts is also out long-term with a pec injury suffered last weekend against Newcastle.

Meanwhile, Canberra will name English star John Bateman on an extended bench for this weekend’s clash with South Sydney.

Bateman is yet to play this season after shoulder surgery in the pre-season but will be named in Ricky Stuart’s squad on Tuesday afternoon.

The 26-year old is in his final season with the Raiders after signing a rich deal to return to Wigan next year.

The Raiders will also name rookie Semi Valemei on the wing with Jordan Rapana at centre.
