The Newcastle Knights have voiced their appreciation for the supporters who travelled to cheer the team to its 20-18 win over the Gold Coast Titans at C Bus Super Stadium on Sunday evening.
The Club’s Members and fans who braved the inclement weather did not go unnoticed to Coach Rick Stone and the Knights’ playing squad.
“The Newcastle people in the crowd were great for us and they found their voice when we needed them,” coach Rick Stone said following the match.
“I want to send a bit of a cheer out to the Newcastle fans in the crowd.”
Captain Kurt Gidley also expressed his appreciation and said the Club’s supporters give the players powerful motivation week-in-week-out.
“Round one was important for us as a Club and a playing group and it just built confidence,” Gidley said.
“Then we moved to our first away game and that was so important to us up in North Queensland.
“We moved to this week and the opportunity to go three from three and to get back home for round four was such a big opportunity.
The Knights anticipate another strong show of support when the side returns to Hunter Stadium for their clash against the Penrith Panthers for the Voice for Mining match on Saturday March 28.
“It’s our second home game and one that we don’t want to lose as well,” Gidley said.
“Any day’s a good day for football in Newcastle,” Gidley said.
“We’re going to get back on our home track and our fans are going to get behind us a bit more and hopefully everyone starts believing a bit more,” Stone added.
