Knights secure young Kiwi No.9

The Newcastle Knights have announced the re-signing of hooker Danny Levi on a three-year contract.

Levi was signed until 2018, however the new contract will secure the former Junior Kiwi until at least the 2020 season.

“Our strategy is to retain our best young talent and build a team around them,” coach Nathan Brown said.

“In his third year of football, Danny shows continual improvement and a real desire to represent our footy club.”

The 21-year-old New Zealander, who made his debut in Round 15 in 2015, has notched up 30 NRL games for the Knights.

“I have been here since the start of my career so it’s good to get another three years on top of that,” Levi said.

“Since I moved to Newcastle I thought it was such a beautiful place.

“It is nice and chilled out, there are awesome people around so definitely somewhere I feel I see myself in the future.”
