It's been an all too infrequent sight this season. Jesse Ramien in space, one-on-one with a defender.
We all saw what the former Sharks star is capable of against the Canberra Raiders in that exact scenaro three weeks ago.
A big left hand fend on the chest of Jack Wighton, a burst of power to spear through the gap and a trademark try on the end of it.
The question most Knights fans want answered is why haven't we seen more of it? Why have a marquee centre camped out on the right edge if you are not going to get the football to him?
Ramien shrugs off the question like he does would-be defenders. In fact, the 21-year-old centre seems less concerned about his lack of opportunities than the rest of us.
"I'm not too worried or frustrated about it because I know we are still finding our way a bit as a team," he says. "We've got a lot of new players and you always hope things click pretty much straight away but generally speaking, they don't and we just need to keep working at it.
"Obviously being an attacking centre, you'd like to get a bit more ball but both sides of the ruck are probably not seeing the footy as much as we'd like. You can't always wait for it either so I probably need to go looking for it. It's something I know I could be a bit better at. Maybe getting myself into the game more rather than waiting for the game to come to me."
Even when you bring up Origin and wonder out loud if the Knights' slow start and Ramien's lack of chances so far will impact on his chances of selection, he is not fazed.
"I haven't thought much about Origin to be honest," he says. "Yeah, it's a goal at some stage but we have lost a few games in a row now and I just want to concentrate on doing what I can to help the boys gets us back on track a bit.
"If my name happened to get tossed up, I'll make sure I'm ready to go but I'm not anxious about it at all. I'm all about putting my best foot forward for the club and if Origin talk does come up, whether it's now or a few years away, I'll make sure I'm ready."
If the truth be known, it's hard to believe Ramien could be any more relaxed or content with his life right now. And the reason is not so much on the field but off it - his 5-year-old daughter LaSharn.
His move to the Knights this season from Cronulla was largely motivated by his desire to live closer to her on the Central Coast.
"It might seem something small to a lot of people but it's made the world of difference to me," Ramien says.
He is now living near the beach at Hamlyn Terrace on the Central Coast, only a couple of streets away from his little girl.
"My life off the field has got a lot easier," he says. "I was traveling a fair bit living at Cronulla will my little girl living on the Central Coast. I'd drive to the Central Coast to see her on my days off and on the weekend.
"With all the driving, it wasn't good for me and the coaching staff didn't really like me getting into the car straight after a game and driving two hours up the coast. It was my first year of first grade and I tried not to let it bother me but it does take a toll on you when you are away from your kids. As the year went on, I found it tougher and tougher and I had to make a decision."

Ultimately, Ramien says the choice was an easy one.
"I just said to myself I didn't want to miss my little girl growing up," he says.
"To be able to still play footy and live 30 or 40 minutes away from training virtually just around the corner from my little girl is unbelievable. It's made a massive difference to my life. I'm seeing her every day. I have a really good relationship with her mum, we get on very well and we put our little girl first and we both understand that and do what's best for her.
"Pretty much every day I'm off, I take her to kindergarten. The school's at the end of our street. It has just made a world of difference."
As for LaSharn, well she is now a Knights fan.
"She is loving it. She is coming to the games and has got to meet all my team-mates' kids,"Ramien said.
"She knows Eddie [Edrick Lee] from the Sharks so has been playing with his little ones and she's met Klem's boys so they all play together."
"At the end of the day, footy is our job and if your off-field's not right, your on-field won't be either so you have to get the balance right."
Ramien has the balance right. Now to see more footy.
