Muswellbrook secures 2011 NRL trial match

Hunter Valley rugby league fans will enjoy a bumper start to the 2011 season with the Newcastle Knights announcing today that they will play the first NRL trial match in Muswellbrook in nearly 20 years against the Cronulla Sharks.

The Coal & Allied and Newcastle Knights Community Alliance is continuing its strong commitment to the Upper Hunter and has joined forces with Muswellbrook Shire Council to bring the match to Muswellbrook Olympic Park on 26 February.

Newcastle Knights Chief Executive Steve Burraston said he is looking forward to bringing the club's second trial match to Muswellbrook.
