TweetFacebookWATCH what Knights’ coach Nathan Brown has to say about Wayne Bennett’s dig about him “unbuilding the club”: STORY: https://t苏州夜场招聘/FeVLJYmaNPpic.twitter苏州夜总会招聘/0hKdB4Ks5i

— Newcastle Herald (@newcastleherald) April 7, 2018

“He [Brown] has done a good job there, but we didn’t leave it in bad shape,” Bennett told Brisbane media on Friday.

Asked what Brown had done well, Bennett replied:“I’m not sure yet …well he unbuilt it, so I suppose if you unbuild it, the next thing you’ve got to do is rebuild it.”

Brown fired back after beating Bennett’s Broncos on Saturday night, saying it was “a bit sad” that the experienced coach had chosen to criticisehim.

“I ain’t ever publicly bagged Wayne, or anyone,” Brown said.

“Then he comes and has a shot at me. I don’t think he needs to behave like that myself.

“The reality is, when Wayne came to town, if he thought with his big head rather than his little head I wouldn’t have had to rebuild the joint.”

Brown then stood up and walked out without taking any more questions, leaving behind an amused Mitchell Pearce.

“You can take that to him if you like,” Brown said as he was exiting the press conference.

Brown didn’t elaborate, but the remark has been taken as a reference to Bennett’srelationship with his new partner, who he first met as a receptionist to Newcastle’s club doctor.

The last time the Knights tasted victory over the Broncos was back in 2013 when, ironically, current Brisbane coach Bennett was at the helm.

But it was Bennett on the receiving end on Saturday night with the Knights turning a 7-0 halftime lead into their third win of the season.

They did it off the back of their defence.

Brisbane forced a remarkable seven line dropouts but could only come up with two late tried.

Knights fullback Kalyn Ponga was again outstanding for the Knights while backrower Lachlan Fitzgibbon was not far behind.

It was Brisbane’s third loss of the season with their disjointed attack a worry for Bennett.

The Knights scored the only try of the first half with Pearce kicking a field goal on the stroke of halftime for a 7-0 lead to the home side at the break.

It was 32 minutes into the game before the 0-0 deadlock was broken and it took a touch of individual brilliance from Ponga to finally prise open the Brisbane defence.

WAYNE BENNETT: I DIDN’T LEAVE KNIGHTS IN BAD SHAPEKNIGHTS SAY THEY OWE IT TO THEIR FANSRunning the ball on the last tackle, Ponga’s electric speed and footwork got him on the outside of Broncos backrower Matt Gillett,with the Knights fullback putting Lachlan Fitzgibbon through a hole to score, leaving a mesmerised Kodi Nikorima in his wake.

Ponga added the extras for a 6-0.

The home side then came up with some heroics at the other end, repelling the Brisbane attack for three sets on their own line with some desperate defence.

The Broncos weren’t without their chances.

Nikorima was pulled down by Ponga with the line open after a James Roberts run while Anthony Milford came up with a crucial error after he made a bust and looked certain to set up a try for his side.

The Knights weathered enormous pressure at times with the visitors forcing five line-dropouts but Brisbane had nothing to show for it in the first 40 minutes.

Newcastle almost kicked further ahead two minutes after the resumption when prop Chris Heighington was pulled down just short on the last after great lead-up work from Nathan Ross and Brock Lamb..

But the Knights weren’t to be denied after 56 minutes when Pearce caught the Brisbane marker defence napping with an inside ball for big prop Daniel Saifiti to storm over near the posts.

Ponga’s goal advanced the scoreline to 13-0.

But a Shaun Kenny-Dowall mistake deep in his own half gave Brisbane a sniff and the resolute Knights defence finally cracked with winger Corey Oates just managing to get the ball down in the corner.

Ponga stretched the lead to 15-4 with a penalty goal 15 minutes from time before Milford set up a thrilling finish with a controversial try from dummy half with six minutes left after he appeared to throw the ball forward in the lead-up.
