    Luke Yates re-signs

    Mon 25th May, 03:19PM

    Newcastle Knights Under 20s forward Luke Yates has re-signed with the Club for a further two years.

    After playing 24 games in the Under 20s last season, the 19-year-old was rewarded with a pre-season with the NRL squad this season.

    In 2015, the West Newcastle junior has captained the side on occasions and also stepped up to play in the NSW Cup.

    "Luke is a tremendous worker and has a bright future at the Knights," Director of Football Michael Hagan said.

    "He has been one of the Under 20s most consistent performers over the last 18 months.

    "Luke is another local junior who is prepared to work hard as he aspires to play NRL."

    good luck to the kid, but our decision to contniue to sign the same type of boring unskilled player is a concern. no doubt he has heart and work rate, but he offers nothing in attack and gets rolled to easily in defense, same sort of mould to the great white hype we also signed to a first grade contract (james taylor) and how is he going??

    Hopefully we can resign the Saifiti brothers next.

    a 94kg forward
    His profile says he is the same height as Paul Gallen but 10kg lighter.
    I suppose if he can pack on 10kg of muscle and keep his big motor he could be a firstgrader.

    So he's contracted until the end of 2018? Contracted Knights players on main forum has him as 2017.
