Knights add Costigan to 2011 signings

The Coal & Allied Newcastle Knights have today confirmed another significant recruitment announcement with the signing of current Queensland State of Origin forward Neville Costigan until the end of the 2013 season.

Costigan, 25, will join the Knights at the end of this season once he has completed his current contract with the St George Illawarra Dragons.

Costigan has represented Papua New Guinea in the 2008 World Cup and has played five games for Queensland, along with 101 NRL games after debuting for the Brisbane Broncos in 2003, he then moved to the Canberra Raiders before rejoining Wayne Bennett at the Dragons.

The keen fisherman who grew up in tropical Mackay after being born in Rabaul, Papua New Guinea, believes the Newcastle Knights is the perfect place to further his already distinguished rugby league career.
