Rookie Report, we take a look at the nib Newcastle Knights players developing in the SG Ball Cup, Harvey Norman Tarsha Gale Cup and Harold Matthews Cup competitions.

The junior representative sides had an action-packed day at Cessnock Sports Ground last Saturday with the boys sides tackling the Western Suburbs Magpies while the Tarsha Gale side clashed with the Wests Tigers.

See how each team fared:

SG Ball Cup

The SG Ball side made it two wins from two to the start the year after coming out victors in a high-scoring affair.

The team won 34-26 with Paul Bryan scoring a last minute four-pointer to take the points.

The Magpies crossed first before Chris Vea’ila and Myles Martin put the Knights in front.

The sides traded points for the majority of the game with Fletcher Sharpe, Noah Nailagoliva and Luke Pietzner getting over the stripe for the red and blue.

The Magpies looked to have won the game after scoring in the 64th minute before the Knights came up with the try in the dying stages to seal a sensational victory.

Tarsha Gale Cup

On the reverse side of a last-minute try, the Tarsha Gale Cup team narrowly went down to the Wests Tigers 16-14.

The Tigers scored first in the final game of the day at Cessnock before Shanti Evans and Matilda Jones crossed just before half-time.

The Knights held a 14-6 lead at one stage when Tori Brazier scored, however that is where the scoring would stop for the home side.

The Tigers rallied late to score two tries including one with two minutes to play to snatch victory.

The Knights side will look to respond when they take on the South Sydney Rabbitohs next Saturday in Sydney.

Harold Matthews Cup

The Harold Matthews Cup side suffered a second consecutive defeat going down to the Western Suburbs Magpies 38-20 in the fist game of the day on Saturday.

Navren Willett scored an early try for the home side and would grab a first half-double only a few minutes later.

Zeek Faulkner and Khynan Butler also scored four-pointers for the Knights, but the Magpies proved too strong scoring seven of their own.

The side will look to score their first win of the season when they take on the Rabbitohs in the next round.
