Buderus re-signs for 2013
Tuesday 12 June 2012 11:37 AM
The Hunter Ports Newcastle Knights are pleased to confirm inspirational leader and fan favourite Danny Buderus has re-signed for season 2013.
Buderus has played 11 games this season and become the second-most capped player for the Knights after surpassing Tony Butterfield’s tally of 229 games in Round 13.
The former Australian and NSW Origin hooker returned to the Knights in 2012 after playing overseas in the Super League competition for three years.
In a disappointing start to the Knight's season, Buderus has been the standout player. He believes he has more to offer the Club and town he loves.
“It means so much to me every time I run out in the Knights jersey and I just want to do everything I can to help the Club,” Buderus said.
“I didn’t come back here expecting the fairy tale nor to just contribute, I want to have a positive influence on the place.
“Age isn’t an issue for me and if I didn’t feel like I could contribute I would give it away.
“I am pleased to have re-signed for another year and look forward to helping the team be successful on and off the field.”
CEO Matthew Gidley said Buderus has a lot more to offer at the Knights.
"We are very excited that Danny has decided to commit to a further 12 months at our Club,” Gidley said.
“Danny’s attitude, commitment and desire have been the cornerstone of his game for his entire career and continues to be the case.
“Danny’s leadership skills will also be extremely valuable as we look to integrate our next generation of Newcastle Knights.”
