    KNIGHTS TO EXTEND BROWN

    Fairfax Media reports Newcastle are set to extend the contract of coach Nathan Brown for a further two years, until the end of 2020.

    The deal, which will be struck by club new owners Wests Group, will include performance indicators.

    “The key for us is the head coach, getting him sorted out for the next period of time,” Wests chief executive Phil Gardner said.

    “I think we’re keen to sign him on those performance conditions and get him extended for another two more seasons. Then we can offer some certainty for the players we’re trying to attract.

    “It’s very hard to say to the players: ‘He’s only signed for one more year but we’d like you to sign for three or five’.

    Gardner said similar on the day the agreement was formalised. Browny was always on for an extension after supporting the take over.

    Hopefully we will get to see them. But in the end Brown is the right coach for us at the moment and hopefully if results continue, in to the future.
