Competition - NRL Premiership Round. Round - Round 19. Teams - Newcastle Knights v Melbourne Storm. Date - 17th of July 2016. Venue - Hunter Stadium, Broadmeadow NSW. Photographer - Paul Barkley.

Storm emerged from their trip to Newcastle with the two points and plenty of room for improvement.

Sunday was far from a complete performance from the boys but those kind of tough wins will only help the side heading into the back end of the season.

It was a typically hard-fought clash against the Knights, one which will hold Melbourne in good stead to face the Roosters at AAMI Park this Saturday.

Be at AAMI Park when we take on the Roosters, Saturday 23 July, 7:30pm.

“It was a gritty one. It probably, to our standards, wasn’t up there with the best performance,” Blake Green said.

“We had a few guys come back from injury which was a positive, it was good to get Cameron (Munster) and Will (Chambers) back and Matt White played his first game.

“It was good to get the result but we’re looking for a better performance this week.”

This Saturday’s clash against Sydney will take on added meaning with Storm prop Jesse Bromwich set to play his 150th game.

In recent years the prop has developed into a star of the competition and a true leader around the Club.

The Storm playing group treats every milestone with significance and they are desperate to make sure Saturday’s one will be memorable for their beloved big man.

“It is going to be a big week, he is an important part of what we do so it is important for us to put on a good performance for him and get the result,” Green said.

“When someone celebrates a milestone we want to make sure they have good memories of the day. We will be doing everything we can to get the win.”
