Young gun Knight earns NSW selection

There’s no shortage of young talent coming through the ranks at the Newcastle Knights.

Backrower Beau Fermor is one young gun continuing to be noticed.

He has been selected for the Canterbury Cup NSW Residents team this year.

It follows a stellar 2018 for the 20-year-old, who was awarded NSW rugby league and Knights Jersey Flegg player of the year.

Fermor also started full time training with the red and blue for the 2019 pre-season on an NRL development contract.

Having played Queensland U20s Origin last year, the Knights backrower will swap the maroon jersey for a blue one to represent NSW in 2019.

Elite Pathways Development coach Scott Dureau said Fermor is not only a good person but a great player.

“Beau joined us at the start of last year from Dalby,” said Dureau.

“He has so much attacking ability. He can score tries, make line-breaks and change games.

“He works extremely hard at his game and wants to get better every day.

“His selection in this team is a great reward for a strong start to the season and fully deserved.”

The NSW Residents side, coached by Shane Millard, will take on the Queensland Residents at Dolphin Stadium in Redcliffe this Sunday, May 12th.
