Adam O’Brien doesn’t have a blueprint for a rare four-day turnaround but will roll with the punches after Newcastle returned to form with an emphatic win over Canberra on Sunday.

A hat-trick to winger Enari Tuala and centre Bradman Best’s brilliant comeback from injury propelled the Knights to a 34-24 win over a sloppy Raiders side in their rescheduled clash at Suncorp Stadium.

In a match delayed almost 24 hours by Queensland’s snap COVID lockdown, the Knights seemed to handle the disruption far better with that challenge to get even greater this week with only four days until they face the Broncos on Thursday night.
