How to watch today's Melbourne Storm vs Newcastle Knights NRL game: Live stream, TV channel and start time

The top-of-the-table Melbourne Storm (8-3) play host to the Newcastle Knights (6-6) at AAMI Park on Sunday afternoon.

Craig Bellamy's side will look to return to winning circle after falling to their third defeat of the campaign against the Manly Sea Eagles last time out.

However, given their impressive home record, they will like their chances of taking the two points, having won 14 of their previous 15 meetings at AAMI Park.

Meanwhile, a four-game winning streak for Newcastle came to an abrupt end last week against the Canterbury Bulldogs. Adam O'Brien's side only managed two points despite having playing at home.

Here, GOAL brings you everything you need to know about how to watch Melbourne Storm vs Newcastle Knights in the NRL, plus plenty more.
