Arguably their best player, the Newcastle Knights have received a huge boost with Kalyn Ponga re-signing with the club.
Ponga’s new contract extension will see him remain in the red and blue until the end of the 2024 season.
For Ponga, it was an easy decision. He feels at home, his family is around him and he loves the club.
“I feel at home here,” Ponga said.
“My family are settled in Newcastle and it just feels right here at the Knights.
“I love the Club, my teammates and the main reason I re-signed is because I want to win a competition here.”
One of the most gifted athletes we have seen in recent times, Ponga has come into his own as a player.
Knights fans adore him and with his ambition high, the club will also match that ambition and build both with and around him.
“We are delighted to have secured Kalyn’s services long-term,” Knights CEO Phil Gardner said.
“It’s a great day for the Club, our supporters and region.
“Kalyn is an incredible young man with a wonderful, loving family.
“He loves Newcastle, his family loves Newcastle and we couldn’t be happier he wanted to extend his tenure.”
