Hull Wasps overcame an energetic Newcastle Knights side to come away with a 51-43 win on the road.

Down at the half by four points and struggling to get a foothold in the game, Coach Fawcett made some adjustments and the Wasps responded well. The Wasps closed the gap and levelled the game by the end of the third and stormed ahead in the fourth to an eight-point lead and win the game.

“It was a very good response today from my players” said Coach Fawcett following the game.

“After last week’s game, we were determined to put things right. We found ourselves down at the half, but we evaluated and made some adjustments at the break and we played very well in the second half. I thought we deserved the win.”

Adrian Blatherwick top scored for the Wasps with 15 points. Matt Brutnell scored 14 while centre Matt Wilson scored 9.
