The Knights big win over the Cowboys, saw Newcastle move to 10th on the ladder, just two points outside the eight.
In more positive news, the victory saw Kalyn Ponga and Mitchell Pearce back to their best.
“If you can be critical of Pearcey sometimes he puts too much pressure on himself. When he doesn’t do that he has a great impact on this football club and football team, said coach Nathan Brown.
Connor Watson’s knee is the only concern ahead of Saturday’s clash with the Tigers.
“He’s got a minor medial injury. Not serious. Whether he’ll be fit for next week I couldn’t answer that at the moment, but it was minor whatever it was,” said Brown.
