nib Newcastle Knights Head Coach, Adam O'Brien, has named his 22-man squad for our Coffs Harbour clash against the Cronulla Sharks at Coffs International Stadium.
The Knights will celebrate the National Rugby League 2023 Indigenous Round with a special jersey, designed by Worimi artist Gerard Black, who produced the outstanding 2022 jersey.
This year’s design proudly depicts the natural beauty of Newcastle, the Hunter Valley and the Barrington Tops, as well as representing the 13 First Nations of our region, from the Hawkesbury to the Queensland border and the northwest.
Hard working backrower Tyson Frizell will notch up another personal milestone, when he runs out for game number 50 in the red and blue Knights jersey, with many highly regarded judges declaring the representative forward to be in career best form.
