Long serving doctors return

The nib Newcastle Knights have welcomed back two of the Club's longest serving physicians as the 2019 pre-season gets underway.

Veteran physician, Dr. Peter McGeoch and Sports Injury Specialist, Dr. Neil Halpin worked at the Knights together for more than two decades.

Both men are highly respected by the Club and were made Knights life members after wrapping up duties in 2016, however, the Knights are pleased to announce the duo's return following a two-year break.

Director of Football, Brian Canavan, said the homecoming of Dr. McGeoch and Dr. Halpin is a massive coup for the Club.


"They're the two longest serving physicians in the game and have been duly acknowledged by the National Rugby League," Mr Canavan said.

"It's a great coup for the Club to have two doctors of their pre-eminence in sports physicians work available for us going forward."

Dr. Luke Dan has also joined the Club.

The current Australian Rugby League Schoolboys doctor, Dan joins the Knights from Manly.


Having trained with Dr. Nathan Gibbs, Dr. Dan has worked with the NSW Country ruby league and was the team doctor for Toa Samoa in the 2017 RLWC.

"Doctor Luke Dan has been appointed as assistant medical officer," Mr Canavan continued.

"He will support doctor's Peter and Neil, as well as act as medical officer for the ISP NSW and Jersey Flegg Knights teams.

"The Club is pleased to have him."
