To say Dane Gagai was pumped after scoring a double against the Cowboys would be an understatement.

Smiling broadly in a triumphant Knights' dressing room late on Monday night, Gagai was so excited to take his try-scoring tally to five for the season that he quite easily could have cuddled you.  

As happy as the Queensland-born centre was though, he was also quick to humbly deflect any praise coming his way.      

You see, Gagai knows he can't pile on the points without his big men doing the hard yards up front.

"It was good to get those two tries, but I can’t take all the credit for it," Gagai tells Knights TV.

"All the boys played outstanding and my two tries just come off the back of great play.

"And that all comes off the back of our forward pack.

"They were unbelievable and they got us going forward and it’s always going to work out a lot better when you’re on the front foot.

"They all stood up for us and we really needed it.

"So we owe a lot of credit to our forwards, but was great to see the ball get shifted out wide and it was just exciting footy.

"At the end of the day though, I’m always going to be happy to get two meat pies."

After seven long weeks of defeats, Gagai says it was a relief to finally end the pain with a quality team win.    

"It’s a good feeling to get those two points, because effort has never been in question with these boys," he says. 

"Everyone has come off busted and there is not one person who hasn’t come off the field sore.

"So to get the two points was a good feeling.”

The Knights will look to record back-to-back wins for the first time this season when they take on the Parramatta Eels at Pirtek Stadium on Sunday from 3pm. 

While the men in red and blue are beaming after beating the Cowboys, Gagai stresses that they can't afford to let the win go their heads.   

“We can’t get too far ahead of ourselves," he says.

“I’ll just enjoy this win and then once we get back onto the training field we’ll switch back on to go out and do a job.”
