Newcastle Knights coach Nathan Brown has offered some advice for NSW coach Brad Fittler after the Blues Game 1 loss at Suncorp Stadium.

Amid speculation surrounding whether Cody Walker should be dropped for a playmaker such as Knights veteran Mitchell Pearce, Brown says there would be little use bringing the former Rooster in unless he’s given the chance to dominate the ball.

Brown – whose Knights scored a 20-12 win over the South Sydney Rabbitohs to kick off Round 13 – believes the issue for Fittler is that he has “two five-eighths” and whether it suits the style of game Fittler wishes to play.

While Pearce couldn’t quite extend his run of five man-of-the-match awards to the win over South Sydney, he has been a crucial part of the Knights system which has in turn notched up six wins in-a-row.
