The Newcastle Knights is pleased to announce the contract extensions of Danny Levi and Jack Cogger, both until the end of season 2018.

Levi, who was contracted until the end of 2017, has agreed to an additional year while Cogger, who was contracted until the end of 2016 has agreed to an additional two.

“Both Danny and Jack are important to the Knights’ future success and are a part of our plan to develop and retain our best young players,” Director of Football Michael Hagan said.

19-year-old Levi made his NRL debut this season in Round 15 and has gone on to play six games while also playing in the NYC and NSW Cup sides.

“We are excited to have someone like Danny, with his talent and potential, sign long term with the Club,” interim coach Danny Buderus said.

“We have seen how Danny has handled playing at NRL level this year and we are glad he’ll be here for at least the next three years.”

The Wellington-born hooker is excited to extend his contract in Newcastle.

“I am happy to be playing for this Club and to have my future further secured at the Knights,” Levi said.

18-year-old Cogger, who played in the halves for the Australian Schoolboys side in 2014, stepped up to the Under 20s side this season and has helped steer the side around the park.

“Jack has been in our High Performance Unit and junior representative program for four years already and we look forward to his continued development at the Knights,” NYC coach Troy Pezet said.
