Kurt Mann inks two-year Knights extension

The nib Newcastle Knights have secured the services of versatile utility Kurt Mann for a further two seasons.

Currently in the midst of another strong season, the 28-year-old has become one of the most consistent players at Adam O’Brien’s disposal.

A true ‘Mr Fix-It’, Mann has played a raft of positions over the last three seasons, however has more recently found a home in the centres after an extended stint in the No.6 jersey.

The Winton junior has already racked up 52 appearances for the Knights, scoring nine tries and notching 15 try assists in his three seasons.

His consistency and reliability have seen him rewarded with a spot in Paul Green’s Queensland Origin squad after being a whisker away from beating Kalyn Ponga to the 2020 Danny Buderus Medal.

After stints in Melbourne and Sydney, Mann said he was delighted to finalise his long-term future in Newcastle.

“I love playing for the Knights and the start of my rugby league journey was here,” Mann said.

Mann Re-Signs

“I’m excited to be here now and extend my future with the Club.

“We’ve got a great team and are a real family-orientated Club.

“My partner loves it here and my kids will probably grow up supporting the Newcastle Knights as well.”

Mann’s new deal will see him remain in red and blue until at least the end of the 2023 season.
