Statement From Knights

The Newcastle Knights' Chief Executive Officer Steve Burraston makes the following statement in light of today's media surrounding Kade Snowden's playing future.

Today's media is advising that a third party was involved with Kade Snowden to secure his services for the Newcastle Knights.

We would like it clearly understood that we do not know who this third party is.

If the allegations are correct, that third party operated independent to and without the knowledge or approval of the Newcastle Knights board and management.

The Newcastle Knights further confirm that the offer to Kade Snowden was withdrawn and no further negotiations have taken place following Wednesday 9 February. To pursue Kade Snowden would cause significant salary cap issues for the club.
