The Newcastle Knights has had four players plus coach Mick Crawley selected in the 2014 Holden Cup Team of the Year. 

Under 20s captain Danny Levi, Jake Mamo, Sione Mata'utia and Joseph Tapine were all named as some of the best up-and-coming players alongside their coach.

The Knights is the first Club to have had five of its members selected, however in 2009, the St George Dragons had four players named before the coach was included in the selection process in 2011. 

"It is probably more of a reflection on the team but it is an honour, so I am exited about it," Crawley humbly said.

"Then to get four players in the team is a real reflection on how the team has gone, the guys will be thanking those players around them."

Mamo, Mata'utia and Tapine all trained with the NRL squad over the pre-season, while it was Danny Levi's first pre-season with the Under 20s after joining the club last season.

"The off-season with first grade helped those guys out... and it made them aware they could compete at the highest level," Crawley admitted.

"Danny started the year as an 18-year-old, so we thought it was best he did one year with the Under 20s before joining the first grade squad."

The team was announced in Sydney on Tuesday morning at Rugby League Central Museum. 

"The young group have certainly worked really hard together to make the season a success," Crawley added.

Jake Mamo (Newcastle Knights)
Valentine Holmes (Cronulla Sharks)
Sione Mata'utia (Newcastle Knights)
