At Old Boys Day, we are encouraging all the members and supporters for both the Knights and Dragons to give generously to support Rural Aid's Buy A Bale campaign to help Australian farmers.

Inside the stadium, we will acknowledge our Australian schoolboys' representatives, plus the cheerleaders and Old Boys will be on show.

The Old Boys Hall of Famers will be presented to the crowd and taking part in a lap of honour.

The NRL kicks off at 3pm with the Old Boys providing a Guard of Honour for the Knights as they run out onto the ground.


At halftime, McDonald Jones Homes will host an inflatable ball relay.

At fulltime, be sure to stick around with several presentations set to take place.

First, Mitchell Pearce will be presented the match ball with the halfback's 250th NRL game being acknowledged this weekend.


Pearce clocked the milestone up while playing the Warriors.

We will also farewell our departing players.

You won't want to miss the speeches and, of course, the lap of honour to thanks the red and blue faithful for turning out.

See you at the game!
