The countdown is on until a piece of history is forged at McDonald Jones Stadium.
The 2021 NRLW season is fast approaching with 23 players signed-on for the inaugural campaign.
The Knights foundation team will headline a triple-header on February 27 when they take on the Parramatta Eels on home turf.
On the latest episode of the KNIGHTS // HQ Podcast, we sat down with Head Coach, Casey Bromilow, General Manger of Football, Danny Buderus, and homegrown talent, Bobbi Law, to talk all things NRLW.
The new Coach spoke about how the women's game has evolved and the talent the competition possesses.
“The way the women’s game is at the elite level at the moment, (is a collective),” Bromilow said on the KNIGHTS // HQ Podcast.
“It used to be just one player could even win the World Cup.
“I look back to 2017 where Nakia (Davis-Welsh) and the local girl, Caitlin Moran, together they basically stormed the World Cup and won it for Australia almost individually.
“The game has changed and you can’t do that anymore.
“The game now is playing together as a group and understanding footy.
“There is too many talented players across the park now for one player to stand up and win it by themselves.”
Bedsy: 'This is what the Club is built on'
The newly appointed Coach also stated his anticipation for the players arrival in the new year.
The new signings will arrive on January 10th for day one of pre-season ahead of the five-game season.
“January 10th is (going to be) huge. Everyone will finally be here and it will be our first training session,” Bromilow said.
“(Assistant Coach) Jess Skinner was here (recently) and we started planning out session one.
“It’s going to be very exciting just to have everyone walk into the Centre of Excellence. All the girls have got their own lockers and their name on their lockers.
“Day one is probably the biggest thing to look forward too, and then beyond that, game one at McDonald Jones Satdium.
“Having the girls run out in red and blue, in a red and blue stadium, is going to be awesome.”
Local player, Bobbi Law, also couldn't contain her excitement for what will be a momentous occasion at McDonald Jones Stadium.
“I know they will turn out for us girls,” Law said.
“Newcastle fans get behind everyone.
“To play the first game for Newcastle wearing the red and blue in front of your hometown, loved ones, friend and family.
“That’s (going) to be unbelievable.”
