The Newcastle Knights are set to open the 2015 season at home, hosting the New Zealand Warriors on Saturday March 7 at Hunter Stadium.
The Club will also host the St George Illawarra Dragons on Easter Saturday and the North Queensland Cowboys on Anzac Day.
The NRL released the 2015 draw on Monday, with Rounds 1 – 20 once again fixed and Rounds 21-26 to be confirmed.
“Overall, we are pleased with our draw for season 2015,” CEO Matt Gidley said on Monday.
“There are certainly plenty of positives from a football, membership and corporate perspective.”
The draw remains family friendly, with the number of games played across the Saturday afternoon and Sunday while the increase in Saturday games is beneficial for corporates.
The Knights will also host the Penrith Panthers (Round 4), Parramatta Eels (Round 7), West Tigers (Round 10), Brisbane Broncos (Round 11), Canberra Raiders (Round 13), Cronulla Sharks (Round 15), Gold Coast Titans (Round 19), Sydney Roosters (Round 22) and the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs (Round 25).
Old Boys Day will this year be held in Round 25, when the Knights host the Bulldogs at Hunter Stadium, while the Knights are also home for Close the Gap Round against the Tigers.
