Newcastle end losing streak in NRL

7:27 am on 24 June 2014

The Newcastle Knights have ended their 7-match losing streak in the National Rugby League with a 36-28 win over North Queensland in Newcastle.

The Cowboys, without injured State of Origin stars Brent Tate and Matt Scott, extended their woeful record on the road to 0 and 7 for the season.

Darius Boyd, Jarrod Mullen, Kurt Gidley and Dane Gagai had a field day for the Knights, who raced in seven tries to experience some rare joy in an otherwise dismal 2014.
