Utility Jamie Buhrer has suffered a possible season-ending knee injury during a deflating 18-16 NRL loss by Newcastle to the Sydney Roosters.

Winger Blake Ferguson was the hero for the Roosters for the second week running, with tries either side of halftime.

The game went down to the wire after Newcastle fullback Kalyn Ponga scored with four minutes remaining to set up a grandstand finish but the Knights wasted their chances in the final moments.

The loss - their fifth in their past six games - came at a cost after Buhrer came from the field in the first half with a suspected ACL tear to his right knee.

There are fears the 28-year-old's season is over and it would be a bitter blow for the former NSW representative after he had his 2014 and 2015 seasons ended by ACL tears.

They were made to do it tough after skipper Boyd Cordner was a late withdrawal after pulling up sore following Wednesday's State of Origin opener.

His fellow Blues Latrell Mitchell - who set up the opening try for Luke Keary with a powerful individual effort in just the fourth minute - and James Tedesco were also outstanding.

"I'm sure we'll get plenty of Knights fans to come down we seem to get more than the Roosters fans." My choice was based on size not ability, he can do much a lot better than Jacob except bust the line or create havoc in attack, like I said prefer Jacob but no putting Buhrer down .

Dylan Napa, who was also backing up, was sin-binned in the 54th minute under dubious circumstances.

Ferguson gave his side a 12-8 halftime lead when he ran onto a sweetly-time Keary ball.

And then two minutes after the resumption he pushed his side further in front when he took the ball down the short side and ran over Ken Sio.
