Knights v Sharks Round 26 NRL team list

nib Newcastle Knights NRL Head Coach Adam O'Brien has named his 22-man squad for our Old Boys Day clash against the Cronulla-Sutherland Sharks at McDonald Jones Stadium this Sunday. 

In the only change from the team which defeated the Rabbitohs last round, Jackson Hastings has been named to line-up at halfback with Adam Clune moving back to the extended bench.

In it's traditional place in the final home game of the season, this Sunday's game will feature our annual 'Once a Knight Old Boys Day' as we celebrate the past players and staff to pull on the red and blue.

The focus for this year will be acknowledging the Knights 1992 squad, who qualified for the Club’s first ever finals series, with the large majority to form the traditional on-field guard of honour.

The Club will also bid farewell to our departing players at full-time.

Another huge crowd is expected to attend this weekend's triple-header with NSW Cup and NRLW action kicking off before the NRL game.

This round's 50/50 charity raffle partner is Grow a Star.
