Debutant and Newcastle junior Chad Redman scooped the Players' Player award for the Round 10 match against the Wests Tigers.
Coming onto the bench late due to Adam Clydsdale withdrawing through injury, Redman played 36 minutes at hooker and scored a late try that sealed the win for the Knights.
Redman has been a leading player in the Knights' NSW Cup side for the last two years and didn't put a foot wrong when he stepped up to first grade.
The 22-year-old was particularly effective with his runs from dummy-half, making 28 metres from three attempts.
Considering opposition hooker and NSW stalwart Robbie Farah averaged 8.2 metres per a run from dummy-half, Redman's average of 9.4 metres is particularly impressive.
Redman also had 100 per cent tackling accuracy on Sunday, the joint highest from either side.
