Tyrone Roberts

Still only 22, Tyrone Roberts has cemented a first-grade spot at the Newcastle Knights and as a result of his good form, the club has rewarded him with a new contract until the end of 2016.

The Knights are all Roberts knows, having been a part of their system since 2005 and making his debut as a 19-year old in 2011.

In that time, Roberts has played in 52 NRL games and for the man himself, he is pleased to have been given the opportunity to re-sign at the club.

“I have been at the Club for a while now and I’m really happy to re-sign for another two years,” said Roberts.

“It’s great to have this all sorted so I can concentrate on football and on working hard for the Club.

“I love playing for the Knights and I am now just looking forward to the season ahead.”

Someone who does rate Roberts is Knights coach Wayne Bennett and he too is pleased to see Roberts remain at the club.

“Tyrone is an outstanding young man and has a wonderful future ahead of him,” Bennett said.

“It has been pleasing to see him grow in confidence and we are delighted he has re-signed with the Club.

“Tyrone is one of our key young players who will be a long-term player at the Newcastle Knights.”
