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.
â€œTyrone is an outstanding young man and has a wonderful future ahead of him,” Bennett said.
â€œIt 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.â€
