It’s obvious that the Newcastle Knights will be looking to avenge an embarrassing 54-10 last-start loss to the Panthers.
And Nathan Cleary was the star on that afternoon, scoring a club-record 34 points including four tries and nine goals.
He won’t be here this time around though as Dubbo junior Matt Burton takes the reigns.
Burton has just the one league game to his belt and while it wasn’t the same record-breaking performance of Cleary’s, in many ways it was just as impressive.
This time around actually, it is a different task ahead for Burton.
Cleary won’t be there and instead he will need to take charge along five-eighth Jarome Luai.
Luai is still feeling his way into first grade too but the signs were positive in the opening two rounds as he upped his involvement
offering a second option to make Penrith’s attack less predictable.
The Panthers had it easy against Newcastle in that final round clash last year
but this Knights side this year looks a much more resilient outfit under the tutelage of Adam O’Brien.
First up it was a 20-0 shutout of the Warriors and then a 42-24 thumping of the Tigers.
Albeit against bottom eight sides, the defensive effort against the men across the ditch would have been particularly pleasing given Newcastle’s struggles on their own line in recent years.
The Sharks are a tough and gritty side renowned for bullying the opposition into defeat and a young kid on debut is the perfect target.
But the 20-year old was unphased, beautifully executing his role by chiming in when he needed to
And even, also actually setting up the opening try of the night with a well-timed grubber kick for Brent Naden
