Club statement: Dylan Phythian

The Newcastle Knights have today announced the release of Dylan Phythian from the Club.

Phythian has had a second contravention under the NRL’s Illicit Drugs Policy, which automatically incurs a 12-match suspension.

After conferring with Dylan, the Club has made the decision to terminate his playing contract. His behaviour is at odds with the culture we are building within the Club.

The Knights will provide him with counselling support during this challenging time.
