At the height of his powers, Uate bagged a club record 4 tries, including a length of the field effort on fulltime.

Round 19, 2014: Rise for Alex Round

At first glance, a round 19 22-8 home loss to the Titans seems rather uneventful.

However, while the result may not have gone the Knights way on the field, the support shown by the local community and wider NRL to rally behind Alex McKinnon following his horrific injury was something to remember.

Round 2, 2017: Breaking the 336 day, 19-match losing streak                               

The Knights endured a horror run in 2016, winning just one game.

By the time round 2 of the 2017 season rolled around, it had been almost a full year since the Knights tasted victory.

In a see sawing encounter where the lead changed six times, tries to Peter Mata’utia and Nathan Ross sealed an incredible and important win for the Club.

Round 11, 2019: Beating the Premiers at home in 2019                                             

It didn’t get any bigger for the Knights last season.

The Knights ran riot over the reigning Premiers, running away 38-12 victors in front of a massive crowd at McDonald Jones Stadium, with Mitchell Pearce dominant against his former club.

For younger Newcastle fans who have only heard stories of the atmosphere generated at home during the 90s, the atmosphere created in this match was something special.
