Get to the game to receive a limited edition McManus giveaway as a special memento and hear the bagpipes played for the much-loved Club stalwart one last time. 

McManus will also be in the Fan Zone between 1pm and 1.20pm to meet and take pictures with fans. 

Follow the Newcastle Knights' social media througout the week and on game day as well as the special hashtag #ThanksJimmy. 

"I'd like to thank all the Members for supporting me throughout my career," McManus told Knights Members as he reflected on his career. 

"It's been a wonderful journey playing for the red and blue and there's been nothing better than running out into a packed stadium in Newcastle.

"I really appreciate all the support and hope you get behind the new crop of young guys we have coming through as they are the future of the Club."
