Top five things we miss most with the game suspended

The game is suspended and boy, are we missing it.

We miss the action but there’s plenty around the game itself that we can’t wait to see again.

If you have any suggestions to add, post them on social media, tagging in @NRLKnights using the hashtag #IMissNRL, and we’ll add the best of them to this list.

Here’s what we miss:

The ‘Newcastle’ chant

When our backs are against the wall, you make your voices heard.

The chant could send a shiver down your spine and has got the boys home on plenty of occasions, whether they’re defending their backsides off or attacking to win the game.

Anybody who was within the walls of McDonald Jones Stadium during the Roosters clash last year can attest to the full power of the famous chant.

The chatter from the supporters

We've all heard the calls of ‘Get ‘em on side ref’ and ‘they’ve been doing it all day’ from the crowd.

While some banter is hurled across the fence better than others, what we can truly guarantee is every pro-Knights call from the stands makes a difference in getting our boys over the line.

The passion, the pride and the support is something we're all truly missing.

Go Hard, Go Knights

Our run out song is better than any other in the NRL.

When the guitar hits, you know it’s business time.

The lyrics speak for themselves – ‘there’s a lesson to be learned and we’re handing it out. This game is our game, this town is our team.’

Throw in Glenn Hawke's call of "We need to hear you Newcastle!" and you've got a recipe for goosebumps.


Another one from the musical arena, there's nothing better than hearing the boys belt out the famous team song after a win.

While the sheds are a ghost-town now, we have a feeling it won't be long before this one is once again echoing across the ground level of McDonald Jones Stadium.

The Big Hits

Round One against the Warriors was all we needed to wet the appetite.

Seeing the boys step up with a huge defensive display, including keeping the opposition to zero and producing a number of big hits, had the 10,000-strong home crowd in raptures.

Plus, nothing beats the collective sound of 'Ooooh!' when an opposition player is folded like origami by one of our troops.
