Melbourne Storm utility Slade Griffin is set to join the Newcastle Knights for two years.

West Coaster Slade Griffin has reportedly agreed to move from the Melbourne Storm to the Newcastle Knights for the next two NRL seasons.

Griffin, 26, met with Knights head coach Nathan Brown last month and, according to Australian media reports on Monday, has committed to a two-year deal.

He will be the second Kiwi hooker on Newcastle's books with Wellington's Danny Levi, 21, established in the first grade team and a contender for the Kiwis' Rugby League World Cup squad.

Griffin, who can also play in the backrow, has been the understudy to Storm, Queensland and Australia captain Cameron Smith since 2013.

Saifiti has a stage to shine

Jacob Saifiti is ready.

With a second full season of NRL under his belt the 21-year-old will be helping to lead the Fijian forward pack at the 2017 World Cup, which kicks off late next month across Australia, New Zealand and Papua New Guinea.

His twin brother and Newcastle Knights teammate Daniel will be on the sidelines having undergone shoulder surgery last week, meaning that Jacob will take on much of the responsibility up front when the Bata meet USA, Wales and Italy in the preliminary rounds.

It’s a task many, especially considering his age, could find quite overwhelming.

However, this time and this tournament provide Saifiti with a stage to shine following on from his 21 appearances in red and blue during the most recent club campaign.

Jaelen Feeney believes he still has plenty to offer at NRL level, despite being released by the Newcastle Knights. - Newcastle Herald

“I’d love to have stayed at the Knights, but obviously I’m going to have to part ways."

MOVING ON: Jaelen Feeney is looking for a new start after being released by the Knights.

UTILITY back Jaelen Feeney believes he still has plenty to offer at NRL level after learning the Knights have chosen not to re-sign him for next year.

Feeney, who played in 13 top-grade games for Newcastle over the past two seasons, is among a growing list of Knights players to part company with the club.

The Knights have also farewelled heavyweight forwards Pauli Pauli on their website, while seasoned prop Josh Starling revealed on Twitter he was “hanging up the NRL boots” and moving to Bathurst.

More off-contract players are expected to follow in coming days but home-grown back-rower Luke Yates, who played in 19 games this season, is on the verge of signing a one-season extension.

Newcastle Knights CEO Matt Gidley steps down after Wests Group club takeover - Fox Sports

NEWCASTLE are the lookout for a new chief executive to take them into the future after Matt Gidley announced his intention to step down in November.

Gidley’s impending departure ends a six-year tenure as boss of the NRL club, which included overseeing the recruitment of Wayne Bennett in 2012-14.

The Knights have collected the past three wooden spoons but are widely believed to be on the way up following a heavy recruitment drive for next season.

Newcastle on Wednesday also credited Gidley’s role in helping the recent ownership takeover from The Wests Group, who are set to deliver a centre of excellence and erase the club’s debts.

Gidley said it was the right time to walk away from the club.

NRL 2017: Cronulla Sharks warm up for finals with scrappy win against Newcastle Knights - The Sydney Morning Herald

Cronulla have work to do leading into next week's elimination final after slogging their way to an unconvincing 26-18 final-round win against Newcastle in the Hunter.

Despite racing out to an 18-0 lead, the Sharks were pushed all the way on Sunday but eventually prevailed for a hard-fought second win in three weeks.

Shane Flanagan's fifth-placed side now await the winner of the St George Illawarra and Canterbury game to decide whether they face Penrith or North Queensland in week one of the finals.

Sharks skipper Paul Gallen was easily his team's best, warming up for the business end of the season with a trademark 249 metres and seven offloads.

Knights forward Lachlan Fitzgibbon impressed with two tries, although he suffered a compound finger fracture in the second half and failed to return.

His efforts also...

Newcastle Knights. The men of steel entered the competition in 1988 with limited success. Haven't played finals footy since losing a preliminary final against the Roosters in 2013.
