Warriors v Knights Round 12 NRL team list

nib Newcastle Knights NRL Head Coach, Adam O'Brien, has named his 24-man squad for our Indigenous Round clash with the Warriors at Moreton Daily Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

The thirteen First Nations of north and north-western New South Wales will take pride of place on the Newcastle Knights new Indigenous Round Jersey, to be worn for the first time against the Warriors.

The jersey features the artwork of proud Worimi man, Gerard Black who has showcased the totems of the people and lands stretching from the Hawkesbury River to the Queensland border and into western NSW.
