Knights sign exciting halves prospect Lino

Mason Lino has agreed to join the nib Newcastle Knights from 2019.

The Warriors halfback has signed a two-year-deal with the Club which sees him in the red and blue until at least the end of 2020.  

Knights Player List Manager Troy Pezet said the addition of Lino provides genuine competition for positions with Lino able to play half and five-eighth.

"Mason is a talented young man," Pezet said.

"He provides us with good depth for Mitchell, Kalyn and Connor."

Contracted to the Warriors for next season, the Auckland based team has agreed to an early release, so Lino can pursue an opportunity with the Knights.


A Samoan international, Lino made his NRL debut for the Warriors in 2015 where he has played 17 top grade games.

Scoring three tries in eight games last season, Lino is also a goal-kicker.

"Mason has a lot of strings to his bow," Pezet continued.

"Not only does he have a handy kicking game but he's a sharp goal-kicker too."
