Newcastle surge home, Eels snatch last minute win

9:03 am on 25 April 2011

A second-half fightback from Newcastle has given the Knights a 22-12 victory over the Canberra Raiders in the National Rugby League.

Newcastle winger Akuila Uate stole the match from Canberra with a brace of tries in seven dramatic minutes as the Knights turned a 12-6 deficit into a 22-12 victory.

Parramatta scored a final minute try to snatch a dramatic 22-18 victory over Gold Coast at Parramatta Stadium.

Forward Shane Shackleton dived on the scraps of a Daniel Mortimer kick in the 80th minute to give the fast-finishing Eels a victory that had looked unlikely in a match the Titans led from the eighth minute.
