Knights\' Newton calls press conference

Newcastle forward Clint Newton has called a media conference at his home this afternoon amid speculation he may seek a release from his contract with the Knights.

Newton, who played his 100th first grade game in yesterday's 71-6 loss against Brisbane, is due to come off contract at the end of this year. A Newcastle spokesman said the Knights had not been officially notified of Newton's intentions.

Newton represented Country Origin from the bench in the clash with City earlier this month.
