    the kid is awesome, hes that strong. Stuper hard to stop close to the line, good defender, good skills. Really happy with the singing.
    Knights back line might be red hot next year

    Watson
    Moga
    Matutia
    Ramien
    SKD
    Ponga
    Pearce

    looks pretty good on paper!
    Mason lino as a backup half is a great signing too

    Signing Lino has freed up enough cash at the Warriors for them to keep Luke

    Veteran Parramatta centre Michael Jennings and St George Illawarra utility Kurt Mann have been linked to the Newcastle Knights.

    According to The Newcastle Herald, Knights coach Nathan Brown has met with the players representatives in the past week.
    Both players are believed to be willing to move to the Knights, however both remain contracted at their current clubs.

    Jennings will earn approximately $800,000 at the Eels next season, but could be allowed to move as the Eels seek to create salary cap space.
    However any deal would likely need the Eels to pay half of Jenning’s salary.

    Mann was a junior at the Knights, before departing for Melbourne and then the Dragons.
    The tough utility has played every position in the backline, but would be turned into a hooker if he moved to Newcastle.

    Jennings... meh. He was great last year, dreadful this year. If he wants to get fit and if Parra are paying half his wage, 400k is still too much for him.

    Mann I wouldnt mind, hes a pretty decent utility. A hooker.. its a bit slight to play that on a consistent basis and his defence isnt good enough to play in the the middle for long stints. I like him as a backup half and outside back but as a hooker.... I dont rate it.

    We have Lino as a backup half and potentially hooker as well.

    I think we need a good prop still in order to be an actual contender - and would prefer Ponga to stay at 1 and we move Watson on. Mann can play 6.

    Jennings for 400k a year? I'll take it. And Mann at hooker? Good little hard nut. Take him too.
