8:30 am on 21 March 2010

The National Rugby League champions Melbourne have notched an unconvincing 20-14 win at Newcastle.

A 70th-minute winning try for centre Dane Nielsen saved the Storm's blushes after they trailed 14-0 in the first half.

The premiers then withstood a relentless second half barrage from the Knights, who led 14-12 at the break.
