Utility back Carlos Tuimavave arrived at the Newcastle Knights in the 2015 pre-season, from the New Zealand Warriors, having played nine NRL games with two tries to his name.

With chief playmaker Jarrod Mullen injured early in the season, Tuimavave started his first game for the Club in Round 12 away to his old side the Warriors.

The 23-year-old went on to start in five games for the red and blues at five-eighth and played a big part in holding the side together when both Mullen and Tyrone Roberts were out with injury.

Linking up with Hull FC in the English Super League next year, Tuimavave's teammates reflect on his time at the Newcastle Knights.

Jaelen Feeney

"We're good mates off the field and good mates on the field, he's obviously my halves partner and we've created a good bond together. Hopefully he does well overseas." 

Jake Mamo

"He's just a genuinely good bloke and he's fun to be around... you want people like that in your team and you want to play alongside guys like that."  

Sione Mata'utia

"He's very chilled out and doesn't panic too much, he really just does the job well and I'm sure he will go a long way in the future."

Tyrone Roberts

"A wonderful bloke and a good mate."

Tuimavave's time in the red and blue is not yet concluded, with him set to play in Sunday's NSW Cup final against the Penrith Panthers at Jubilee Oval.
