Hughes re-signs with Knights

MapSports Tom Hughes has agreed to terms with the Newcastle Knights for the 2017 season. The big outside back, who spent time in the backrow in 2016 moved to the club prior to the June 30 deadline in 2016 after spending 4 seasons with the South Sydney Rabbitohs.

Standing 188cm and weighing in at 100kg, Hughes has the perfect combination of size and speed for todays game and his recently developed versatility was seen as a major plus by the Knights.

When we sat down with Tom to discuss his move he said, "It's a top place to be at, the club are great and the community has a real semi-rural feel to it. I am settled here now and want to get stuck into 2017 and try and establish myself up here for the future."
Knights staff commenting on his re-signing noted "Tom is terrific to have around the club amnd has come here for an opportunity and has shown he has plenty to offer. He added plenty to our team over the back half of 2016 and after seeing the work he has put into the 2017 preseason I can see another big year ahead for the Merimbula Pambula Bulldogs product."
