Storm five-eighth Cameron Munster.

Melbourne Storm coach Craig Bellamy has issued a warning to the rest of the competition and declared star playmaker Cameron Munster still has plenty of improvement left in him.

Munster produced a superb individual performance against the Knights at AAMI Park on Saturday afternoon, highlighted by three try assists and a pair of trademark one-on-one strips at the defensive end of the field.

His efforts helped the Storm register a fifth straight triumph and move further clear at the top of the Telstra Premiership ladder.

But Bellamy believes Munster's best is yet to come.

"He (Munster) is only 24 years of age, so you would think he's going to get better in some areas," Bellamy said after the Storm's 34-4 victory.

"He just comes up with some plays that other players can't seem to come up with.

"The intercept was typical Munster. The opposition is getting tired and trying a risky play but as soon that happens he seems to turn up in the right spot.

"It's quite common for Cameron, he's obviously got this innate sense about what the right thing to do at the right time and more often than not he comes up with the right play at the right time."

Munster wasn't the only player Bellamy singled out following the Storm's demolition of the Knights, with skipper Cameron Smith and the league leaders' dominant forward pack also earning praise from the veteran mentor.

The triumph was the Storm's 11th win of the season and Bellamy wants his side to keep the foot on the pedal and maintain that level of play for the remainder of the campaign.

"I thought our performance was pretty good especially our defence for the second half," he said.

"Unfortunately for the Knights they made a lot of errors in the first half and put a lot of pressure on themselves.

"If someone said before the game this will be the score you wouldn't have believed that.

"We have got to be very happy with performance and continue to build on it."
