Club statement: Jacob Saifiti update

Newcastle Knights player Jacob Saifiti has been exonerated by the police investigation from any culpability following an incident outside the Greenroof hotel last week.

Saifiti attempted to defuse a situation involving other innocent bystanders, which led to his assault and charges have been laid.

As such, this matter will be resolved in the courts and the Club will make no further comment until the court case has run its course.
