Get NRL Footy Freaks Price Boost For Knights v Sharks At Ladbrokes

Back either Akuila Uate to score a try in a Newcastle Knights win or Michael Gordon to score a try in a Cronulla Sharks triumph with Ladbrokes and receive a price boost thanks to their NRL Footy Freaks offer for Sunday's game.

Newcastle Knights will look to kick-start their season against the Cronulla Sharks this weekend – as they come up against a team who are also winless in their first three NRL games.

The two sides meet at Hunter Stadium on Sunday afternoon looking to win their first points of the 2014 NRL Premiership season and you could join the winners in being successful, if you take advantage of Ladbrokes’ Footy Freaks offer for the game.

Just register for a Ladbrokes account and place a Win bet on Ladbrokes’ chosen Footy Freak to score an anytime try in this game – either Akuila Uate in a Newcastle Knights win (2.75) or Michael Gordon in a Cronulla Sharks victory (6.00) – to receive the promotional odds listed.

In contrast, Ladbrokes are also offering Knights as 1.50 favourites in the Head-to-Head market, with Sharks priced at 2.65 to emerge victorious.

And Knights will be desperate to prove Ladbrokes right and claim the win – after captain Kurt Gidley dedicated the rest of the season to Alex McKinnon, who suffered a neck injury in last Monday’s 28-20 defeat against Melbourne Storm.

Gidley told Newcastle Knights’ website: “It wasn’t until after the game that we realised it was pretty full-on and pretty devastating. It rocked everyone and we are still all in a bit of shock and disbelief.

“Alex wants a result this weekend, I’m sure, and he is going to be watching from his hospital bed on Sunday afternoon. He’ll want a smile on his face watching us play. 

“We’ve just got to work hard and keep his spirit and his determination that I’m sure he would show if it was another player in his situation.”
