In Round 9 of the NRL Telstra Premiership, the Roosters were looking for a big performance against the Newcastle Knights and the return of two stars would set the platform for a blow-out win at home.

Mitchell Pearce was outstanding in his return, putting his fingers in plenty of tries and even scoring a four-pointer of his own. 

Blake Ferguson did no harm to his representative chances after scoring a hat-trick, and Isaac Liu scored his first of the season. 

It was a truly dominant performance, made even more impressive by the Knights being kept scoreless in the process.
