Sunday’s heavy defeat to star-studded Sarries might have had a negative impact on weaker minds and bodies.
But Knights produced a business-like performance at the Athletic Ground to run in seven tries and earn a bonus point victory.
Steve Boden’s side have now won six out of seven games in a shortened ten-game season and lie second in the table. The top four qualify for the play-offs.
Knights’ tries came from Howard Packman (2), Guido Volpi, Will Holling, Jack Davies and Jerry Sexton. Sam Olver kicked four conversions and Billy McBryde one.
