The Newcastle Knights and Melbourne Storm will face off in Sunday afternoon NRL from McDonald Jones Stadium. Join The Roar for live scores from 2pm AEST.

Where will Knights’ points come from? That’s the question of the week with just three players who have scored more than two tries this year and two of them are out this week – Dane Gagai and Dominic Young. They’ve crossed the stripe just four times in the past four matches, all losses, with three of those in the one game against St George Illawarra. And they’re up against the team with the third-best defence in the NRL.

It’s been smooth sailing for the Melbourne Storm and the biggest question for them is whether Ryan Papenhuyzen can break a long standing record.

The Storm fullback has opened the season with 10 tries, 30 goals and a field goal for 101 points in seven appearances. Manly’s Reuben Garrick, when he scored 334 last year, went close to breaking Hazem El Masri’s all-time record of 342 set in Canterbury’s 2004 premiership-winning campaign. If he keeps up his current rate of 14.43 per game, Papenhuyzen would break the record if he played every match of the regular season without needing the playoffs to boost his tally.
