GO KNIGHTS: Your cardboard cut out could be there when the NRL returns

After what probably feels like an absolute eternity for some NRL fans, the footy is back! 

This weekend will see the first post-pandemic game for the beloved red and blue. 

The mighty Newcastle Knights will be taking on the Penrith Panthers at Campbelltown Stadium, Sydney this Sunday, 31 May. All the best to the boys!

Now, we’re not sure how we feel about the Newcastle “home ground” being moved to the Centy Coast? Lucky it’s only temporary! And, like many of you, we are keen for a time when crowds can make their way back into McDonald Jones Stadium. 

But, until they can attend live matches and cheer on their team from the stands, how can fans lend their support?

Well, The Fan in The Stand of course! For about $22 you can have a photo of yourself made into a cardboard cut out. Place your order, nominate your fave team, and your trusty cut out can attend games for you. 

They can’t buy the beers though. You’re still gonna need a 6-pack at home. 

Go Knights!
