Promising Newcastle playmaker Ryan Stig has pledged the next two years to the club after signing a new two-year deal.
Stig, 21, has made an impression with the Knights, appearing in every game since making his debut in round 15 against Penrith.
“This is a tremendous result for Ryan, who has worked tirelessly in his pursuit of an NRL contract,” said coach Rick Stone.
Stig is pleased to re-sign with the Knights.
“As a kid who grew up playing footy in this area, I am really excited to extend my contract with the Knights,” Stig said.
“I am glad my contract is sorted and I look forward to the next few years but my focus is on this season and finishing the year well with my team mates.”
