The Knights were clearly the better side and hardly let the Bulldogs into the contest with a mix of tough defence and stellar attack.
Despite the Bulldogs dominating a fair portion of the second half, they were unable to penetrate the Knights line, and it effectively cost them the game as their finals hopes are now gone.
Several Knights players stood up and made themselves known including captain Kurt Gidley, Adam McDougall and Cooper Vuna.
It proved all too easy for a Knights outfit desperate to sneak into the finals whatever way they can.
It won’t get any easier for Newcastle though as they come up against a Warriors side desperate to cement their own spot in the top 8.
For the Bulldogs, season 2010 is officially over. It will be seen as a disappointment by Dogs fans, but 2011 is one that they can look forward to with some very good signings.
