A word from the Coach, Michael Stuart: "As a team, it (Round 2) was a fair performance by the girls with a lot of learning coming from the game. Our power through the middle was key to collecting the win over a never-say-die Newcastle Knights. Asha Taumoepeau-Williams was one of the standouts with her exceptionally strong carries and big post-contact metres.

"Moving into this week, it will be a top-of-the-table clash against the Penrith Panthers who are also two from two so we are working to reset and focus on how we can improve as a team with some minor adjustments."

A word from the Coach, Shannon Rushworth: "Newcastle in Newcastle is always a game that presents a lot of challenges, however, the boys were up for this game and excited to back up their efforts from Round 1.

"Right from the start we built a lot of pressure from great set endings and good effort off the ball which eventuated to points. Once the first points were scored we raced out to a 20-0 lead, finishing the half up 24-4. Second half the momentum swung and Newcastle came home with a wet sail bringing the score to 24-20 but the boys held their nerves and that's how it finished.

"The Matts (Harold Matthews) boy's effort was always there and couldn't be faulted. This was a learning game in which we received a valuable 2 points and now move on to preparing for another tough game this week against the Panthers."

A word from the Coach, Bou Ovington: "The final score of 12-6 at the weekend reflected a hard-fought battle and well-deserved win. As anticipated, it was a gritty contest, especially over our goal-line defence which has been a cornerstone of our season so far.

"Paea Uilou emerged as a standout player, showcasing remarkable match fitness and her efforts to create game-changing plays that shifted momentum our way. 

"Moving forward, our focus lies in enhancing our field position awareness and decision-making sequences. Nevertheless, Round 2 was a valuable game for the team and I am optimistic about our continued progress this season."

A word from the Coach, Steve Turner: "The first road trip of the year was a tough one. To come away from Cessnock with two points against a very good football team (Newcastle), was pleasing.

"Down 16 nil after 15 minutes, the team showed fight to dig in and get the win. There were signs of improvement in the attack and plenty of effort-based plays from our defence, particularly in the second half. It was great to see the team improve in areas we spoke about coming out of Round 1 and executing what we had spoken about during the week.

"Mitch Woods, Sosaia Alatini, Sosefo Finau, Bud Smith and Hamish Wilson all delivered strong performances."
