Knights' Woes Continue as Houston Charged with Drug Supply

Following in the footsteps of his former flatmate, Newcastle Knights second rower Chris Houston will face court next month on drug supply charges.

Strike Force Welham investigators charged fellow Knights teammate Danny Wicks with drug supply charges in mid December, and following further investigations have charged Houston with three counts of supplying ecstasy, and one count of supplying cocaine.

Houston is expected to be stood down from all club duties indefinitely, however the extent of his suspension is unlikely to be known until Knights officials meet today.
