Knights pull off crucial win in bid for playoffs

7:26 am on 14 August 2012

The Newcastle Knights pulled off a crucial win last night in their bid for the NRL playoffs with a clinical 26-4 win at home over Cronulla.

The Knights are up to 9th place after a winning streak that could add to coach Wayne Bennett's amazing record of making the finals every year since 1992.

Cronulla remain in 6th place, but last night's loss all but puts paid to their hopes of making the top four.
