Newcastle may be sitting sixteenth on the NRL ladder but there is no denying they are one of the form sides of the competition.
The Knights enter Saturday’s clash against the Storm on a three game winning streak – their longest since the start of the 2015 season.
There is no doubt Nathan Brown’s side will be setting their sights on taking a big scalp before the end of the season.
Taking on the top side, at home, on a Saturday afternoon would have them believing they are perfectly placed to do just that.
But if it is complacency they are relying on they would be sadly mistaken.
The Knights’ stellar form over the last month has not been lost on the men in purple.
“We’ve been look at Newcastle for a few weeks now and they’ve been playing pretty well,” Kenny Bromwich said.
“They are on a three game winning streak and we can’t get complacent with a team like them because in the last few times we’ve played them down there we’ve had some tough games.
“They are a young side and are starting to gel well. Their attitude has been awesome, the way they’ve turned up and played these last few weeks.”
Storm and the Knights will lock horns at 3pm this Saturday at McDonald Jones Stadium.
