Knights players to watch in 2021

Newcastle Knights star Kalyn PongaKalyn Ponga
Born: 30/3/1998
Games: 68
Tries: 30
Position: Fullback

Ponga could play anywhere in the back half, but his influence from fullback was highlighted two years ago when he scored 11 tries in the space of 12 starts, then follows it up with 10 tries, 14 try assists, 112 tackle breaks and 12 line breaks in 19 games last year. A full campaign from the WA-born star will put the Knights right in the mix for another finals spot.

NRL star Mitchell PearceMitchell Pearce
Born: 7/4/1989
Games: 297
Tries: 73
Position: Halfback

Mitchell Pearce will be wanting to come out and prove himself this season after being stuck in the headlines all throughout the off season. They will still be looking to Mitchell Pearce to lead the team even without captaincy in his name. Expect him to come out firing to push the knights back into the top eight.

Knights recruit Bradman BestBradman Best
Born: 9/06/2001
Games: 14
Tries: 9
Position: Centre

This 19 year old has secured himself a starting spot in the Newcastle Knights squad. Best dominated his junior competition in 2019 scoring seven tries in five games to earn him a call up to start the 2020 season in the NRL. Bradman scored eight tries in his 11 appearances and will be looking at following it up with an even bigger season with the New South Wales jersey in his sights. Will be one to watch this year.
