    Just off the top of my head:

    Jamal Idris
    Greg Bird
    Anthony Tupou
    Kade Snowden
    Anthony Quinn
    Michael Ennis
    Greg Inglis
    Luke Walsh

    Brett Finch - Not in the NRL currently
    Willie Mason - Not in the NRL currently
    Brett Kimmorley - Retired

    I know there is a lot more, but those are the bigger name players that I can think of off the top of my head.

    Yeh i know where he is from, but he was never a knights junior, i.e. he wasnt a guy who slipped thru our fingers, was poached from another club because we had no money, or someone we told to go elsewhere cause he wasnt good enough.

    I guess the question should be who are Knights juniors that are playing in the NRL other than the for the Knights ?

    Terrence played 2007 with us after coming thru the successfull SG ball/Jersey Flegg including the likes of Patto, McManus, Mullen, Walsh, Dureau etc. He was known as Ahn Doh in the 2006 Flegg grand final.

    It looked like we were grooming him to replace bedsy, but he go into to trouble a few times and the club sacked him (probably because he wasnt reaching the level of standard they were after). Then we signed DeGois, and the rest is history.

    Boyd Cordner is another. He hasn't played FG yet but is very promising & was taken out of our hands by the Roosters. Could be a very good player.
