Knights to kick-off season at home

The Newcastle Knights will kick off their NRL season at home, coming up against Canterbury-Bankstown on Friday 12 March at 6pm.

The NRL’s Magic Round will return, with the Knights slated to take on Wests Tigers at Suncorp Stadium.

Indigenous Round will also be back and bigger than ever, with the Knights hosting Manly in what will be a Sunday afternoon blockbuster in round 12.

The Knights will play for the Alex McKinnon Cup against the Dragons in round 4, the Mal Reilly Trophy against Manly in round 12, and the Allan McMahon Cup against the Tigers in round 10.

The traditional Old Boys Day game will look a bit different this year, with ‘Old Boys Night’ set to occur in round 24 against the Titans on Thursday night football.

The season will conclude on Saturday 4 September with a clash against Brisbane at Suncorp Stadium.

On the representative front, State of Origin will revert to mid-season, with a ‘rep round’ being placed between rounds 15 and 16.
