Newcastle Knights Half-Back Transfer Rumors: Super League Bound?

Newcastle Knights Half-Back Considers Super League Move

On April 19th, it was reported that a Newcastle Knights half-back could be headed to the Super League after struggling to earn consistent game time in the NRL. The Knights have been active in the player transfer market, signing two Super League stars ahead of the current season – Kai Pearce-Paul from Wigan Warriors and Will Pryce from Huddersfield Giants.

Pearce-Paul has quickly become a key member of the Knights’ pack, making an immediate impact. However, Pryce has faced a more gradual path to the first team, with the 20-year-old finally set to make his NRL debut this Saturday against the Parramatta Eels after spending time in the NSW Cup side.

In recent weeks, the Knights have relied on the half-back pairing of Jackson Hastings and Jack Cogger, but the team has struggled, losing their last three consecutive matches. With Pryce now in the mix at the number 6 position, it appears that Tyson Gamble, the 28-year-old half-back, may be the odd man out in the Knights’ plans.

“Gamble is off-contract at the end of the 2023 season, meaning he is free to explore options with other clubs for the 2024 campaign.”

Gamble has made 8 NRL appearances this year but was dropped to the NSW Cup side for rounds 5 and 6, and has not featured since May 11th. Despite previously being a regular starter, including in the semi-final loss to the New Zealand Warriors, his path to an NRL starting role at the Knights or elsewhere next season seems uncertain.

A move to the Super League could present an attractive opportunity for Gamble, who made headlines in Australia last year for his controversial response to criticism from former NRL player Willie Mason. As the Knights continue to reshape their roster, Gamble’s future may lie outside of the NRL, potentially in the lucrative Super League competition.
