Another masterclass performance by the Storm. With a half-time score of 26-2, Melbourne was in a position to really lay it thick on the Knights.
Xavier Coates once again showed his try-scoring skills with a hat trick. Justin Olam also bagged himself a double.
Newcastle lost Sauaso Sue in the first 5 mins after his head clashed with the hip of Storm player Nelson Asofa-Solomona and he failed his HIA. Knights player Tyson Frizell was also placed on report for an alleged crusher tackle on Kenny Bromwich.
This is the 3rd biggest defeat by Newcastle on home turf.
Full-time score was 50-2.
