Major milestones and records to come in 2019

The 2019 season is fast approaching and there's some big things headed our way.

In 2018, we saw players reach some impressive personal achievements in their careers with the likes of Daniel Saifiti, Mitchell Barnett, Danny Levi, Nathan Ross and Connor Watson all reaching 50 NRL games and both Mitchell Pearce and Shaun Kenny-Dowall playing in their 250th NRL game.

As a team, the Knights broke a 12-year drought when they defeated the Manly Sea Eagles at Lottoland for the first time since 2006 and blooded their 300th player when 20-year-old Pasami Saulo made his debut against the New Zealand Warriors in Round 22.

The 2018 season was a big year for the club but 2019 is going to be bigger.
