Johns: Knights are top eight with Pearce - NRL.COM

Newcastle Knights legend Matthew Johns, who was instrumental in luring Mitchell Pearce to the club, believes they have immediately become a top-eight team following the acquisition of the NSW No.7.

Pearce informed the Knights he will be joining the club next season after Newcastle put forward a four-year, $4 million deal on Thursday morning.

It is understood the Cronulla Sharks tabled a three-year deal in excess of $800,000 a year and were confident of landing his services, but Pearce has decided he wants to be part of Newcastle’s exciting rebuild under coach Nathan Brown.

The Knights also threw in some financial incentives to Pearce around team performance and that played a part in the decision.

War of words continues as Paul Gallen hits back at barbs from Knights coach Nathan Brown - Fox Sports

THE war of words between Paul Gallen and Newcastle coach Nathan Brown has gone up a notch, with the Cronulla captain giving a brutal assessment of the Knights and Brown’s selective memory relating to drug bans.

Gallen started the butting of heads when news first emerged that Mitchell Pearce had signed with the Knights, writing a column for Sporting News stating the NSW halfback had put his rep career at risk by going to a club that was starting from such a low base.

It was a column that clearly aggravated Brown, who hit back the next day, telling NBN News the criticism was rich coming from Gallen given Cronulla had won a wooden spoon in 2014 and were “going nowhere” when ASADA ripped through the club with drug bans for a systematic peptide program.

Since Newcastle announced a week ago that they had signed the former Roosters halfback, they have experienced a welcome surge in membership sales.

NRL Confidential: Anthony Mundine's NRL comeback still on, Knights' stunning gift to fan - Fox Sports

COLOURFUL character Anthony Mundine isn’t giving up hope of returning to top flight rugby league again at some stage.

The 42-year-old league star-turned boxer has long spoken of his desire to return to the NRL, singling out St George Illawarra as his club of choice if he was to make a comeback.

It’s unlikely to actually happen, but the man called Choc refuses to let the dream die.

“It could be, you don’t know. Anything is possible with me,” he told Fox Sports News.

“I feel that good I could do anything.”

Buhrer set to remain at Knights

Knights back-rower Jamie Buhrer. Copyright: NRL Photos.

Jamie Buhrer joined the Newcastle Knights in sudden and unexpected circumstances last year but he has started discussions to extend his career at the club beyond next season.

Buhrer is one of 14 players off contract at the Knights next year with Sione Mata'utia, Trent Hodkinson and Brock Lamb the other big names on the free agent list.  

The 28-year-old arrived at the Knights on a two-year contract in 2016 following a sudden release from the Manly Sea Eagles that allowed Akuila Uate to head to Brookvale.

Openly disappointed by his sudden exit from the Northern Beaches at the time, the former NSW representative declared he has settled into the Newcastle lifestyle "seamlessly" and has no intentions of looking elsewhere.

"I'd love to stay and there are some things in place," Buhrer told NRL.com.

"The family is settled and we're...

Mitchell Pearce: Newcastle Knights officials prepare to meet with the NSW Origin halfback's manager as the battle ... - Newcastle Herald

Newcastle is tipped to table a multi million dollar long-term deal for former Sydney Roosters playmaker Mitchell Pearce in a bid to lure him to the club when his management meets with Knights officials on Wednesday.

Wests Group boss and Knights CEO Phil Gardner and the club’s head of football Darren Mooney will sit down with Pearce’s manager Steve Gillis in Newcastle to formally kick off negotiations after Pearce met personally with coach Nathan Brown last Friday.

The Knights are vying with NRL rivals Manly and Cronulla for Pearce’s signature and with around $2 million left in their salary cap for next season, are expected to up the ante with a $1 million-a-season multi-year offer.

It is understood the club is not expecting the NSW Origin halfback to attend the meeting.  

Meanwhile, Newcastle coach Nathan Brown has dismissed rumours Pearce’s former...

NRL: Newcastle Knights incorporate 'yin' yoga into pre-season training routine | photos - Newcastle Herald

Knights stretching limits with yoga

Shaun Kenny-Dowall loves it while Mitch Barnett has learned to embrace it.

The Newcastle Knights pair are part of a pre-season push incorporating a specially-designed yoga session into the player’s weekly training routine.

For the 2018 squad “yin” yoga, holding certain poses for longer, was hand-picked by instructors rather than the more traditional and fast-paced “flow” yoga.

It may not be the first time a form of the ancient practice has been utilised by NRL clubs as an alternative to lifting weights and running laps around the oval, but the move to hit the mats at Balance City throughout November has been promoted by the Knights for holistic health benefits as well as injury prevention.    

“The main idea behind doing yoga is to ‘lengthen’ our players out,” Knights’ physical performance manager Tony Ayoub said.

“As you can...
