Best: 'It's good to be back'

Bradman Best made his presence felt in his return game against the Canberra Raiders on Sunday.

'The Beast' put in a rampaging performance scoring a try combined with a try assist and 117 running metres.

With five tries coming down the left-hand side, Best's inclusion back in the centres made a significant difference to the side's lethal attack against the Raiders.

"It was definitely good to be back out there," Best said.

"I'm just glad us boys could walk away with the two points at the end of the day.

"I was more excited, I haven't been able to play much footy this year due to a few injuries.

"The left side, we were pretty good on the weekend."

Best: Successful return, top eight race and short turnaround

The 19-year-old suffered a syndesmosis injury of the ankle in the side's Round 14 encounter with the South Sydney Rabbitohs calculating into six weeks on the sidelines for the centre. 

The road to recovery required a lot of hard work and persistence while analysing the game from the stands.

Best described the work he maintained on the training paddock in getting back to full fitness.

"Rehab is always tough but I have been there a few times before," Best continued.

"The comeback was on the six-week mark but I felt 100 per cent.

"There was no dramas there at all.

"You get to reflect when you're injured.

"I wanted to come back a bit lighter and I lost a few kilograms.

"I feel faster on my feet so I'm happy to stay around the weight I'm at.

"With the game now it's evolving and it's a bit faster.

"I trained really hard and I just wanted to nail my job."

The next task for the Knights is the Brisbane Broncos.

Sitting on 18 points along with a host of teams around the top eight, every single game is crucial to their finals chances.

The side is sitting in unfamiliar territory in the midst of a four-day turnaround but Best said they will do everything in their power to prepare for another massive fixture.

"It's going to be a bit different with a four-day turnaround," Best said.

"It will just be about getting the body right.

"We will stick with what works for us.

"Hopefully we can replicate what we did on the weekend.

"We know what we're capable of and we're definitely a team that can pay semi-final footy.

"As long as we train well and stay switched on week-to-week, the results will come."
