Knights centre Dane Gagai was terrific in Newcastle's first-up win over the Warriors.

Gagai re-signs with Knights

The Newcastle Knights are pleased to announce centre Dane Gagai has agreed to a two-year contract extension, keeping him at the Club until at least the end of season 2017.

“Clearly Dane is a talented player and has been a wonderful addition to our Club but he is also a fantastic person away from football and in the community and that is certainly taken into consideration when building a team,” CEO Matt Gidley said.

“We understood there was a lot for Dane to consider with his family based in Queensland, but we made sure Dane knew he was a part of our long term plans.

“So while negotiations can be drawn out at times, we are happy to see Dane re-sign and commit to Newcastle.”
