James Gavet arrived at the Knights during last year’s pre-season after a journeyman-like career, having spent time at the Bulldogs, Tigers, Broncos and a solid three-year stint across the Tasman at the Warriors.
A workhorse prop who can provide just as much impact from the interchange bench, Gavet provides go-forward for his side and consistently bends the defensive line.
It was no coincidence that a majority of the Knights’ wins during the middle of the season came off the back of some massive performances from Gavet, who was consistently breaking the 100-run metre barrier.
Gavet consistently provides a solid face in the defensive line and completed 93% of every tackle he committed to.
ABOUT ME ...
Who am I ... James Gavet
Who is most important to me ... My wife, the main drive I have backing for me, always encouraging me. My parents who live in Auckland, all my moral and values I hold dear, they all come from them. Also my siblings and two kids back in Auckland
Greatest off-field achievement ... I was a bit wayward before I met my wife, she put a lot of things into perspective, and marrying her was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. And the birth of my two kids, makes you want to be a better and a human being.
Something you wouldn’t know about me is… I’m not too bad at dancing, might get a different response off some of the boys. Also played volleyball and basketball growing up.
What I love most about living in Newcastle... The people, I haven’t run into many rude people, lot of people that are very caring and if you’re having a not so good a go, someone will ask you how you’re going
I grew up ... Auckland, born in Sydney but left when I was three or four months years old
People would describe me as ... Someone who is more than meets the eyes, who does cares about his family and the people of Newcastle
As a kid my hero was ... My father
They were my hero because... He taught me pretty much everything I know, playing figure, my favourite player was Jonah Lomu
The last book I read was... A book on Mike Hunt, bit of an autobiography and about his upbringing
My favourite song to listen to on game day is ... It varies, during the week I’m a ticking the boxes kind of guy, maybe some gangsta rap or hip-hop, or rnb or old school tunes
My favourite thing to do in Newcastle is ... The Rooftop at Kotara, there four or five times a week, great food, but a nice sitting
My greatest on field moment... Representing Samoa, I didn’t grow up there. My dad’s and my mum’s parents migrated to New Zealand, and hearing my grandma’s stories and how people are still doing it tough there. If they hadn’t of migrated over, I would be one of those kids on the side of the road selling coconuts. To represent my heritage, my ancestry and the people back there, and I loved it.
