The four young Newcastle Knights selected in the 2014 Holden Cup Team of the Year spoke about their selection following Tuesday's announcement at NRL HQ.

Sione Mata'utia, who made his NRL debut in Round 20 and hasn't missed a game since, humbly admits he couldn't have achieved this accolade without the help of his teammates.

"It was one of my early goals to make this team, I like to tick off goals and this is a major one for me," Mata'utia said.

"I couldn't have done it without the team around me... a lot of this goes to them."

Jake Mamo, who got his NRL opportunity in Round 7 and has played seven games of NRL since, and Joseph Tapine, who made his NRL debut in Round 9 and also played seven NRL games since, agreed it was a huge honour to make the team.

For Under 20s captain Danny Levi, he said it was an unexpected honour.

"I didn't expect to be here but I am happy to be here,” Levi sad.

β€œIt is a real honour to be named alongside three of my teammates and my coach as well.”
