Knights Lock in Local Talent

The Coal & Allied Newcastle Knights have re-signed key playmaker Jarrod Mullen to a new three-year deal, ensuring the Western Suburbs Newcastle junior remains with his only NRL club until at least the end of 2014.

Mullen will enter his seventh NRL season for the club in 2011 with 100 games and 100 points already under his belt at the tender age of 23.

Newcastle Knights Head Coach Rick Stone has confirmed Mullen's signature was a key priority, with the club continuing to focus on the promotion of local talent supplemented by the addition of quality recruits.
