Gunnedah’s Hayden Loughrey and the Newcastle Knights NYC side’s year is done and dusted after being pipped by the Brisbane Broncos on Friday.

The Knights trailed by 20 points at one point but Loughrey led the comeback when a grubber kick from the halfback led to a Kainoa Gudgeon try in the corner.

Newcastle kept coming and got the score back to 24-22 at one point before the Broncos wrestled back momentum. Both sides scored another try each as Brisbane won 30-26.
