Newcastle Knights Tips

Newcastle coach Adam Obrien has named his 28-player squad to kick off this year’s pre-season NRL Challenge tournament.

Fans and NRL experts will see their first glimpses of Jack Cogger, Tom Jenkins, Jed Cartwright, and Will Pryce. 

Wearing the Newcastle Knights Jersey for the first time should see the new editions to the club fired up, tackling low and running the ball up straight and hard.

Newcastle came in a respectable 5th position last year. With a ton of fresh players being added to the squad and a mix of veteran NRL legends still playing for the club, we are pumped to see Newcastle’s first NRL pre-season match for 2024.

Cronulla Sharks Tips

Legendary NRL team the Cronulla Sharks have yet to officially announce their 28-man squad for their first pre-season match of 2024. 

Leaving fans hanging on to the edge of their seats, the side has some new players and veterans with a few nagging injuries. So it will be interesting to see who’s benched and who will be playing.

Last season was a cracker for the Sharks seeing the NRL team finishing in 6th position.

Betting Tips

Experts are yet to voice their opinions on this match, it is a pre-season game. Cronulla Sharks appear to be struggling to draw attention online. Is their fan base slowly disappearing?

We hope Not! In this match, we have the Newcastle Knights for an easy win.
