Will the Knights make it a hat trick of NRL Wooden Spoons?

This is what our NRL expert (Joe Gann) has written in our 2017 NRL Ladder Predictions about the Wooden Spoon red hot favourites:

After the loss of over 1000 games of experience coming into the season, the admirable decision to fill the void with youth and investment in local talent understandably didn’t generate an instant pay-off. With just one win – coming in Round Six against Wests – 2016 was a season to forget for everyone associated with the Knights. An eighteen game losing streak immediately followed that single success and the awful figures - 800 points conceded and just 305 points achieved at the other end of the park - are two of the most glaring statistics of a miserable campaign.

The previous year had finished with the ignominy of the wooden spoon ‘award’ and in 2016, Nathan Brown’s side managed to sink further; conspiring to equal the 1993 Gold Coast Seagulls’ record of just a solitary win in a season. The 2016 Knights can be bracketed together with the 1999 Wests Magpies for the unwelcome tag of Worst NRL team of all time.

The magnificent home support, averaging 14,457 at each home game, is a huge positive for a club presiding over consecutive last place finishes. Another bright spot in a sea of negativity is the hope that the exposure to first-grade competition will accelerate the progress of young prospects like the Saifiti twins, Brock Lamb, Jack Cogger and Sione Mata’utia. Their hopes of avoiding a hat-trick of wooden spoons may depend on it.
