When Knights TV asked some of the players what their favourite defensive moment of the 2015 season was, there were two popular choices.

Beating the Melbourne Storm in Round 24

It was the highlight of the season for many of the players, let alone their favourite defensive performance.

It was interim coach Danny Buderus' fourth game in charge and the team were riding high after an away win against the Tigers.

The full-time score was 20-6, the Knights dominating a Melbourne Storm team that were considered certain winners before the game.

"It's always a massive challenge down there, and if you can defend well in the middle you're a long way towards winning the game," Robbie Rochow said.

Beau Scott's try-save against the Tigers

It was a moment that ended up deciding the game. Seconds before half-time the score was 16-12 in favour of the Tigers and Ava Seumanufagai was bearing down on the try-line.

If the big forward had scored the Knights would have found themselves ten points behind going into the break with an uphill battle in the second half.

Enter Beau Scott, who came out of nowhere to hold Seumanufagai up over the line and give the Knights the impetus required to go on and grab the two points in the second half.  

"That was a real turning point in that match, and it certainly was a defining moment that helped us the following week against Melbourne," Clint Newton said of the effort.
