Hundreds of fans choosing their greatest ever World Class Knights team

May 30, 2014

More than 500 footy fans and miners have already chosen their greatest Newcastle Knights line-up ever as the countdown continues to the announcement of the first World Class Knights. 
As part of this year’s Voice for Mining Family Day celebrations, fans are going head-to-head with mates, colleagues, and a panel of experts, to select the best ever blue and red dream team (or in this case high-vis orange and blue). 
Fans taking part go into the running to win a ‘money can’t buy’ Newcastle Knights experience - travelling with the NRL squad to Sydney, staying in the team hotel and watching an NRL game from the coach’s box. 
There’s still time to enter the competition at and select your team before next Wednesday 4 June.  
NSW Minerals Council CEO Stephen Galilee said that the World Class Knights line-up will be revealed at Voice for Mining Family Day on 8 June. 
“Voice for Mining Family Day will be a fun and positive event for the Newcastle and Hunter community, especially the 12,000 mine workers and their families who live in the region and love their footy,” Mr Galilee said.
