The 2021 season is edging closer, and with that in mind, newcastleknights.com.au has compiled an A to Z guide on everything you need to know ahead of the new season.
A is for… Adam
As in O’Brien. With a year’s Head Coaching experience now under his belt, AOB will be looking to take the Knights even deeper into the finals in ’21.

E is for… Extraordinary
We saw some unbelievable things in 2020, and we have a feeling we’ll see many more next year!
F is for… Finals
We finally returned to them last year, and the boys will be looking to build on our 7th place finish in ’21.
G is for… Goals
Whether it’s kicking them on the field or achieving them off the field, the team will be seeking to knock over some more progress this season.
H is for… Hoy
As in Tex. After nine appearances in 2020 where he caught the attention of the NRL, Hoy will be seeking to step things up in 2021.
I is for… Ice
Think back to Rd14, with Kalyn Ponga and Enari Tuala combining to ice a try and conversion with the game on the line against Manly.
J is for… Jayden
As in Brailey. After a year on the sidelines thanks to an ACL injury, Brailey will be attempting to kick-start his Knights career in 2021.

Now a two-time Danny Buderus Medal winner, KP will look to go to another level in 2021.
L is for… Losses
Let’s hope we avoid these like coronavirus this year!

This town is everything to us, and we’ll be doing all we can to do it proud in 2021.

The first Sunday of October is where we’re ultimately looking towards.

We couldn’t have gotten through last season with your support, and this year will be exactly the same!

Let’s hope this doesn’t play much of a role this time around!
W is for… Wins
We picked up 11 of them last year, and we’ll be looking for even more this time.

Think Ponga. Think Pearce. Think Watson. Think Brailey. Throw in the likes of Tex Hoy and Kurt Mann, and it’s an area the Knights certainly aren’t lacking in.
Y is for… Young
The towering centre has arrived from the UK, and we can’t wait to see him in action!
