Veteran Newcastle prop David Fa'alogo has revealed his strong desire to play beyond this season, adamant he still has plenty to offer in the NRL ranks.    

Speaking after training on Wednesday, Fa'alogo said he was keen to stay at the Knights and help the Club climb of the foot of the competition table.

The 33-year-old, currently in his 12th season in the NRL, insists his ageing body can go for at least another year.            

"I haven't spoken to the Club yet, but that's something that is probably going to come up soon," Fa'alogo says. 

"I'd be looking at hopefully a bit of news in the next few weeks. 

"I'm keen to keep playing. The body is holding up pretty good. My footy is going pretty well at the moment, it's just the results are not going our way."    

The Knights have lost their past seven matches to sit in 16th position, but Fa'alogo remains confident the men in red and blue can turnaround their season. 

He says playing for the entire 80 minutes will be the key to beating the North Queensland on Monday, especially after the Cowboys used a dominant first half display to charge to a comprehensive 28-2 victory over Newcastle back in Round 4.  

"We started off great against the Roosters, but started off slow in the second half and it has happened a in a few games now," he says.

"So we’ll be looking to rectify that this week. 

"We just need to start well and use that as a building block to go from there.

"They (the Cowboys) are obviously in a better position than us, so we are putting our heads down and butts up and doing the hard work at training to get our preparation right going into Monday night."
