Knights shine against Eels

Coach Nathan Brown and co-captain Jamie Buhrer spoke to the media following the 29-10 win over the Parramatta Eels at ANZ Stadium on Friday night.

"That'd be a pretty fair statement," Brown responded when asked if the win was his best since arriving at the Club. 

"It was our first win away from home in 18 or 19 months, however long we've been going for.

"We played a team that had won six on the bounce that a lot of people are talking about winning a grand final, and I thought we were clearly the better team."

Brock Lamb played a crucial role in the win with a try, a field goal, four tackle breaks, two line breaks, two try assists and a line break assist.

"He's obviously been through a lot as stated a few times, he's been through some ups and downs and a tough situation," Brown said.

"But today, he created two tries himself and scored one himself and kicked really well. If (Mitchell) Moses had done that, everyone would say he had a great game.

"So for a young kid, he's got to understand to do what he did today is a real good game and it's about being consistent."

Jamie Buhrer said the team will enjoy the moment, before turning attention to the final three games of the season against Melbourne, Canberra and Cronulla.

"We're just going to enjoy the fact that we won three in a row, we've beat probably the form team in the comp on their own turf," Buhrer said.

"We've got three games to go against some pretty tough opposition - last year's premiers, the runner-up and obviously Canberra's fighting to make the eight.

"If we can emerge out of that without the wooden spoon, I'll tell you what we'll have deserved it."
