Kade, a local junior who returned to the Club in 2012, is strong with a good offload and has established himself as one of the top front rowers in the game.
The Knights prop enjoyed his best season in the NRL for some time in 2013 on the back of his trademark surges up front.
The local Newcastle junior out of Belmont played 20 games, but unfortunately missed games at the backend of the year due to suspension.
He finished the season on a high by representing his grandparents homeland, Italy, at the World Cup in the UK.
