Round 1 tips: Joey's Knights concern


//

NRL Immortal Andrew Johns has backed his beloved Knights to bounce back from a hammering in their last trial of the off-season to start 2019 with a bang against the Sharks.

Having been in a rebuilding phase for the last five years, Newcastle have finally assembled a squad with realistic hopes of a top-eight finish and Johns says they'll get off on the right foot when they meet the Sharks, who thumped them 30-6 at the start of March, on Friday night.

"I think they'll win at home," John told Wide World of Sports for Freddy and Joey's Tips.

However, he did caution that the massive expectations on young star Kalyn Ponga would weigh heavily and that his transition from fullback to five-eighth wouldn't necessarily be an instant success.

"I spoke to Mitchell Pearce about it and he said the problem is all off-season there's been a lot of pressure on Kalyn Ponga," Johns said.

"And everyone from outside the club - and even from inside the club - is like 'give the ball to Kalyn'.

"So he was like 'every time he had the ball he thought he had to do something special'. There's a few errors around him, it's going to take him a while to work out the five-eighth position..."
