Nathan Ross takes to the air
Nathan Ross has made a habit of scoring spectacular tries. But none come better than this freakishly amazing effort against the Dragons in the 2016 season. With a tight corridor of space to work with down the left sideline, Rossy launched himself from five metres out, said farewell to the defenders around him and took to the air, finally planting the ball back on terra firma just millimetres inside the try line. Houston, we don’t have a problem…
Mark Sargent scores a triple
Our first ever international, Sarge played 126 games for the Knights. He was better known for his toughness, intensity and ability to bulldoze through the opposition than his prowess at crossing the tryline. But you can’t keep a big man down. In all, Sarge scored 18 tries for the club. But three of those were achieved in a single afternoon of glory on a very special match day against Canberra. His smile says it all…
Danny converts in his final home game
After 257 games wearing the Red and Blue, an unprecedented four Newcastle Player of the Year awards and a reputation as one of the smartest and most exciting hookers in the game, Danny Buderus hung up his boots in 2013. In his last game at home, the club legend was the given the honour of taking the final conversion of the game as the Knights put the Eels to the sword, beating them 50 – 6. It was a fitting tribute to a Knights legend.
Hughes heads to the skies
No, it’s Mark Hughes. Playing a key role in both the ‘97 and ’01 premiership teams, he scored many memorable tries in front of the Knights’ faithful over nine seasons. This spectacular effort against the Rabbitohs typified Hughesy’s whole-hearted commitment to putting his body on the line for the team. Or in this case, above the line.
