Newcastle Knights vs Melbourne Storm Preview
The Newcastle Knights stamped themselves as a genuine title threat in Round 4, and they can consolidate their position with another big win over the Storm on Saturday evening.
Wowee. I really don’t think that there is anything else to say about their performance and win over the Raiders last week.
They controlled the game from the outset and really didn’t let up at any point. Along with the Eels and Panthers, they are the only other team to have recorded four wins from as many games in 2020 and other than history, I really don’t know why the Storm have been priced as firm favourites to beat them.
In Round 3, the Storm failed to account for a side that then failed to account for the Knights in Round 4.
They were better than South Sydney last weekend and were rewarded with a win, but I personally think that the jury is still out on how the Bunnies are actually travelling at the moment.
That’s all I really have to say, and I am more than happy to take the value around the Knights, yet again.
