WATCH: Knights unbeaten across three divisions

CONFIRMING the state's newest rugby side is a force to be reckoned with, the Harbour Knights remain undefeated in all divisions.

The joint venture has continued its hot form in the New England Rugby Union competition with two resounding wins against Robb Rugby Club in Armidale on Saturday.

The first grade side had a comprehensive 39-0 victory, ensuring they maintained their undefeated run and boosted their all important points differential, which could prove pivotal later in the season.

Three rounds in and the Harbour Knights remain undefeated across all three grades with cracking 31-all draw with fellow powerhouse Walcha the only blemish for the firsts.

Tamworth, Walcha and the Knights all remain undefeated, though Tamworth look to be the team to beat, with a points differential of 101 an ominous sign for the chasing pack.

Harbour Knights dispatched Barbarians 39 – 0 in Armidale to maintain their unbeaten run.

Second grade

Earlier, a blowout was on the cards in the second grade game, with the Knights piling on 31 unanswered points by halftime.

However, a valiant effort by the home side kept them at bay, with the game finishing 38-10.

In second grade, the Knights are the only undefeated side, proving the merger between SCU Marlins and Coffs Harbour Snappers has produced a depth of talent which must be the envy of clubs across the region.
