Newcastle Knights

Newcastle KnightsThe Newcastle Knights entered the competition in 1988, and are best known for a dominant stretch in the late 90s and early 2000s that saw them claim two premierships. The Knights have struggled since that era however, making just four finals appearances in the past 13 seasons.
