Saifiti injured in Knights narrow win

Fiji Bati and Newcastle Knights prop Daniel Saifiti suffered a knee injury in their 16-14 crucial win over the Cronulla Sharks in Round 22 of the NRL on Sunday.

In a potentially thumping hit to Newcastle's top-eight hopes and title ambitions, Saifiti was helped from the field by a medics in the 69th minute and didn't return, after getting a heavy knock to his left knee.

Saifiti, who has a history of knee injuries, hurt his knee as he took on four Sharks defenders in a hit-up close to the line.

The 25-year-old's knee then buckled again as he was running backward in the Knights' defensive line less than a minute later.

Newcastle are expected to lock up one of the two vacant positions in the top eight, but Saifiti's injury could hinder their premiership dream.
