Coming off a tough loss the previous week, the young Knights started positively and settled into the contest against the Red V.
Pasami Saulo was damaging with his early runs while Jacob Kiraz was strong coming out of his own end.
The side were rewarded when centre Dylan Lucas crashed over on the 17th minute mark.
Kiraz doubled down on the good start soon after receiving a beautiful flick pass from Dom Young before making his way to the line to extend the lead.

Young didn't look to pass next time the attack came down the right-hand side as the brut Englishman charged onto a ball and crashed over to put the Knights 14-0 up.
The devastating centre would have a second five minutes later after muscling his way to the line just before half-time to give the Knights an 18-0 lead at half time.
Young was injured in the process and was forced off the field.
The NSW Cup side picked up where they left off in the second half scoring an early try.
Jacob Kiraz brilliantly got on the end of a high ball and found Jack Johns who strolled over under the posts to put the Knights into a commanding position.
Kiraz was forced off the field as well with an injury midway through the second half.
The Knights were on a roll when Saulo burst through the line and found McKenzie Baker who scored his first try of the afternoon.
The Knights were having a field day when Lucas would have his second try soon after combining with Luke Huth to keep the scoreboard rolling for the boys in red and blue and make the score 34-0.
The Dragons got their first try when Max Feagai turned defence into attack to score a length of the field try.
Huth put the icing on the cake burrowing his way to the line while Baker added the extras to put the Knights on 40 points.
The NSW Cup Knights would see the crushing scoreline through to the end to wrap up a 40-6 win and post their first win of the season.
