Grand Final – 1997 – Knights 22-16 Sea Eagles

It could be strongly argued this is the greatest victory in Knights history.

The Knights trailed Manly 16-8 at halftime of the year’s biggest occasion, with the Sea Eagles again largely dominant throughout the game, however the Knights managed to keep themselves in the match.

What happened next lives in history, with Darren Albert scoring in the final 10 seconds of the game to secure the Knights first premiership.

Round 18 – 2000 – Knights 26-22 Broncos

Coming from behind to beat the eventual premiers.

The Knights trailed Brisbane 22-4 at Marathon Stadium and looked gone, with the likes of Andrew Johns, Matt Gidley and Robbie O’Davis missing due to State of Origin III.

The understrength Knights staged a miracle comeback, scoring 22 unanswered points thanks to doubles to Daniel Abraham and Bill Peden.

Round 16 – 2005 – Knights 28-24 Panthers

The first half of 2005 was tough for the red and blue.

Without a win before round 16, the Knights looked set to accrue yet another loss when they trailed 14-0 at halftime.

However, the Knights turned it around with tries to Milton Thaiday and Clint Newton, as well as a mesmerising return by Andrew Johns, sealing a memorable win for the Club.

Round 18 – 2005 – Knights 22-18 Cowboys

The year’s first win at home.

The Knights were still searching for their first home win and were forced to do it the hard way after finding themselves 18-4 behind to North Queensland.

This time it was a schoolboy named Jarrod Mullen who got the Knights home, scoring two tries on their way to a four-point win which sent home fans into raptures.

Qualifying Final – 2006 – Knights 25-18 Sea Eagles

It was a rare home final which went down in history.

The Knights trailed the Sea Eagles 18-6 with 20 minutes to go, however Andrew Johns and Kurt Gidley combined to level the scores before a young Jarrod Mullen iced a crucial field goal.

Mullen solidified his position as a star of the future by making a 90-metre break in the dying minutes which ultimately led to Brian Carney sealing the win just moments later.
