Hundreds of fans gathered at Newcastle City Hall on Tuesday evening to celebrate the Newcastle Knights claiming the 2022 NRLW Premiership.

The 32-to-12 victory over the Parramatta Eels is Newcastle’s first trophy since the men’s Premiership win in 2001.

Lord Mayor Nuatali Nelmes also presented the 24-woman squad with a Key to the City at the civic reception, accepted by captain Millie Boyle.

Ms Boyle says it’s an incredible moment.

“On behalf of the entire team, I’d like to thank the Lord Mayor for opening the doors to City Hall to celebrate the team’s victory,” she said. 

“It means so much to the players, captains and coaches to have such strong support from Novocastrians, which has kept us buoyed throughout the season. It’s wonderful to share this celebration with the city.”
