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 in 1997 and 2001. The Knights appointed coaching legend Wayne Bennett in 2012, alongside new club owner and mining magnate Nathan Tinkler. With Tinkler and Bennett now gone, it will be a new phase for the club under coach Rick Stone.

In 2014, the Knights finished the season in 12th position after a disappointing season.
