The last time these two teams met the Melbourne Storm at home beat the Knights 34-4. Previously, in earlier years and most recent form, matches between the Newcastle Knights and the Melbourne Storm have been heavily favouring the Storm, Newcastle come into this with better For and Against points but the Storm has a marvellous track record against them.
