Newcastle Knights

Newcastle KnightsWith inspirational captain Danny Buderus leaving the Newcastle Knights at the end of season 2008, the days when Buderus and Andrew Johns would lead the Knights to victory are now over. A team effort from 2009 onwards is now required to steer Newcastle back to its glory days when it won two premierships inside five NRL seasons between 1997 and 2001. The Knights have experienced a series of coaching shake-ups over the past few seasons. Wayne Bennett was hired for the 2012 season after mining magnate Nathan Tinkler became of the club’s owner. However the departure of both Tinkler and Bennett saw Rick Stone named head coach, but he has since been replaced by Nathan Brown.

2015 was a season to forget for the Knights, who won just eight games and finished with the wooden spoon.
