Nathan Brown reacts to nightmare Knights showing after coaching announcement

Outgoing Newcastle Knights coach Nathan Brown has admitted his team’s poor showing against the Wests Tigers is a reflection of the situation the club finds itself in.

It was announced during the week that Brown’s tenure as Knights senior coach will come to an end once the 2019 season concludes, having joined in 2016.

Brown had said he hoped the coaching drama wouldn’t serve as a distraction for the players in the final weeks of the season.

Yet with finals still a chance for the Knights, they offered up little fight against the Tigers, conceding the opening eight tries and taking 72 minutes to score themselves.
