The nephew of Canberra and England hooker Josh, Bailey Hodgson joins the Knights after catching plenty of eyes in the Northern Hemisphere.
An English youth international, Hodgson made his Super League debut for the Castleford Tigers, just ten days after his 18th birthday.
At home at fullback and in the centres, Hodgson will bring a mix of strike, balance and game awareness skills to the Knights squad.
Hodgson's contract will see him remain a Knight until at least the end of the 2023 season.
