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.

2016 was easily the worst season Newcastle have ever endured. The Knights were beyond appalling, winning one game across the entire season, leading to a second consecutive last place finish and the departure of former club legend Danny Buderus as coach.

Senior coach: Nathan Brown
Captain: Trent Hodkinson
2016 finish: 16th
Premierships: 1997, 2001
