Kalyn Ponga v Manly Sea Eagles

There is no denying that Ponga looks lethal every time he touches the ball, however his first try of the season was an act of brilliance from the young fullback.

Only three minutes into his playing career with the Knights, Ponga was on the receiving end of a Mitchell Pearce cut-out pass, breaking the Manly defence with his footwork and ripping through the gap to put the Knights on the board.

Slade Griffin v Manly Sea Eagles

Not really known as a try-scoring threat, Griffin followed Ponga in scoring a try on his red and blue debut in Round 1.

It was a typical hooker's try, as he scooped up a quick play-the-ball just short of the line to spin out of a tackle and get over.

Lachlan Fitzgibbon v Manly Sea Eagles

Fitzgibbon picked up where he left off in Round 1, as he continued to build his reputation as a try-scoring forward.

A clever short pass from Connor Watson laid the platform, and Fitzgibbon spun out of the tackle to score.

Aidan Guerra v Canberra Raiders

Guerra showed that he's another second rower with some points in him early in Round 2, as he charged onto a short pass from Connor Watson to get the Knights on the board against the Green Machine.

Lachlan Fitzgibbon v Canberra Raiders

Sweeping the attack from right to left, the Pearce and Ponga combo was back at it again.

This time Ponga using his dazzling footwork and speed to create an overlap on the left side, with room for an offload to Fitzgibbon to slot through the gap and put the Knights up 12-8.

Tautau Moga v Canberra Raiders

Ponga was tearing the Raiders to ribbons in the second half, as he sent a pass to Moga to open his red and blue try-scoring account.

Connor Watson v Canberra Raiders

A classic left edge try that the fans absolutely love, as Ponga drew the outside defence inwards and passed the ball wide to Moga, who drew the Raiders winger and offloaded to Ross.

Ross teared down the left side and put it on the toe back infield for Watson to score.

Sione Mata'utia v Canberra Raiders

This was the four-pointer that decided the Round 2 match, as Mitchell Pearce ran it to the line before putting Mata'utia through a gap.

Mata'utia showed his strength to run right through an attempted tackle and put it down.

Aidan Guerra v Sydney Roosters

The strategic placement of Ponga on the left side drew James Tedesco out of play, with Slade Griffin shifting his body to the right out of the play-the-ball.

Pearce at first receiver recognised the lack of bodies on the right side and put a grubber through for Guerra to wrestle his way to a try against his former teammates.
