Late try breaks Newcastle voodoo
Trailing 24-12 with just 12 minutes left, we were in real trouble before Jeremy Smith turned the match with an intercept try. Just a couple of minutes later Issac Luke went straight through, drew the fullback and passed to the fleet-footed Asotasi who scored under the posts to level the scores. The Knights kicked a field goal to edge in front again, but, inside the last five minutes, five-eighth Ben Rogers dummied close to their line and charged over for the match-winning try. It was our first win in Newcastle for 13 years.
