Round 19 Photo Action - Newcastle Knights V Melbourne Storm 

 

 

Will this tackle be nominated as a tackle of the day as far as Melbourne is concerned?

Melbourne's Peter Robinson plays the ball as team mate Richard Swain and Newcastle's Steve Simpson look on.
Newcastle second-rower Ben Kennedy was a popular man of the match and was head and shoulders above most Melbourne players.
X marks the spot - or at least the Telstra in goal logo does....a few team mates are ready to celebrate another try scored by Danny Bederus. Where are the Melbourne players?
Bill Peden (13) and Ben Kennedy celebrate another Newcastle try or so they thought. Play was stopped in the Newcastle red zone after a knock on.

 

 

It isn't looking good for Newcastle centre Mark Hughes as he is assisted from the field.

 

Newcastle captain Andrew Johns has a chat with referee Bill Harrigan.....

...... as does Melbourne second rower Stephen Kearney while packing into a scrum.
Andrew Johns prepares to throw the ball to Ben Kennedy.......
...... who scores under the posts. Memo Melbourne - if Joey has the ball, don't hang back and watch him.
One of the few occasions Melbourne had the ball without a Knight in sight.
