Blossoming as a player since a move to the Newcastle Knights, the club have confirmed that promising forward Korbin Sims has re-signed with the club for a further two seasons.
Since joining in 2011, the youngest of the Sims brothers has played in 33 games for the club and knowing how good he can become, the club opted to re-sign him quickly.
â€œWe are happy to announce Korbin has agreed to re-sign, keeping him at the Club until at least 2017,â€ CEO Matt Gidley said.
â€œKorbin has shown us the key attributes we are looking for both on and off the field and we know his future is bright here at the Knights.â€
Equally pleased to remain with the club is the man himself, who is grateful for the opportunity the club gave him.
â€œBeing early in the season and just seeing other situations in the game at the moment, I am pleased to have my future secured here at the Knights,â€ Sims said.
â€œThe Knights was the Club that gave me an opportunity five years ago and this is where I want to be playing my footy.
â€œThe Club means a lot to me, I have bought into the Newcastle culture, I enjoy the environment here and I have made a lot of friends.â€
With his trainer at the club and one of his brothers also playing alongside him, it made his decision even easier.
â€œI worked through this decision with my partner Tarin, we made it together and Newcastle is where we want to be,â€ Sims added.
â€œWith (my brother) Tariq just signing with the Club, it made the process even easier.â€
