Throwback Thursday | Lachlan Fitzgibbon

Lachlan Fitzgibbon has solidified himself as a key member of the Newcastle Knights NRL squad in recent years and has been earmarked by many as a star of the future. 

Since his NRL debut in 2015, Fitzgibbon has recorded 64 first-grade games and earned a reputation as being a fearless and hard-working back-rower. 

In the same year he earned a first-grade debut with the Novacastrians, he was a key member of the Knights reserve grade side who reigned supreme with a memorable premiership triumph. 

They finished seventh on the competition ladder but enjoyed a stellar finals run to book their place in the decider against the Wyong Roos – recording a gritty 20-10  victory.

Fitzgibbon was instrumental in their late-season resurgence, finishing the year with six tries, 77 tackle-breaks, and averaged 22 tackles per game. 

That included a stunning performance in Round 20, where he engineered a miraculous comeback victory over the Bulldogs with two tries in the closing stages 

He helped the Knights start their 2020 campaign with two consecutive victories, and will prove to be a crucial part of their efforts to return to finals football.
