Not long ago, the Knights were grappling with disappointment as they languished in the 14th position on the ladder.
However, propelled by the brilliance of Kalyn Ponga, the Knights have orchestrated an impressive four-match winning streak. They decimated the Bulldogs with a remarkable 66-0 victory and then went on to conquer the Tigers, Storm, and Raiders, bringing them to within one point of breaking into the top eight.
The Rabbitohs and Sharks are scheduled to face off in Perth later on Saturday, and the Knights are well aware that a fifth consecutive triumph will propel them into the coveted top eight positions.
On the other hand, the Dolphins' debut season is quickly turning into a disaster after a promising start, with the NRL's newest team suffering six losses in their last seven games.
Throughout the season, the Dolphins have managed to secure only one victory outside of Queensland and suffered a narrow one-point defeat at the hands of the lowly Bulldogs at home last week.
As the season progressed, the Dolphins' depth and overall talent have been exposed, making it challenging to envision them halting the Knights' momentum, particularly outside of Queensland.

- In stark contrast, the Dolphins are facing a challenging period, having suffered six defeats in their last seven games. Their struggles have extended beyond Queensland, with only one victory outside of their home turf throughout the entire season.
