Knights players to watch in 2019

Newcastle Knights star Kalyn PongaKalyn Ponga
Born: 30/3/1998
Games: 29
Tries: 9
Position: Fullback, five-eighth

Ponga was outstanding at fullback in his first season with the Knights, but it looks like he will spend a lot more time in the halves in 2019. No matter where he lines up, the WA-born youngster is Newcastle’s most dangerous player and a deserving favourite for the Dally M.

NRL star Mitchell PearceMitchell Pearce
Born: 7/4/1989
Games: 254
Tries: 64
Position: Halfback

A pectoral injury limited Pearce to only 15 games in his first season at Newcastle, so he will want to make a serious impact in 2019. If he and Ponga settle in well together, the Knights might have one of the best halves pairings in the league.

Knights recruit Tautau MogaTautau Moga
Born: 6/12/1993
Games: 63
Tries: 22
Position: Centre

Moga had played only four games for his new club when he ruptured his ACL for the fourth time. The Samoa rep might not be ready for round one, but he will provide a big injection of class to Newcastle’s back half whenever he does return.
