Reigning Premiers Melbourne Storm's return to form has put them right back in contention for another shot at the title. After putting defeats to Canberra Raiders in Round 8 and Penrith Panthers in Round 9 behind them, Storm drew 10-10 with fifth placed Manly Sea Eagles in Round 10 to stop the rot. Victories against Sydney Roosters 18-26 in Round 11 and Cronulla Sharks 38-6 in Round 13 after a bye now leave Storm within one point of South Sydney Rabbitohs who sit atop the NRL ladder.
Newcastle Knights are in turmoil at the moment and haven't recorded a win since their 44-8 success over Canterbury Bulldogs in Round 10. Novocastrians lost 28-12 to New Zealand Warriors in Round 11 and 25-18 to South Sydney Rabbitohs in Round 12, then fell to ninth in the standings after losing their Round 13 clash with Illawara Dragons last week. Newy are in desperate need of points and face a tough test when they visit AAMI Park on Sunday.
