Luke Huth has been named Newcastle Knights Jersey Flegg player of the year.
Huth is a Lakes United junior who has been outstanding all season, impressing in his role as hooker.
While a broken hand cut his season short, Huth’s leadership and tenacity greatly contributed to the Knights charging into the competition’s top four, where they remained until the final round of the season.

A livewire out of dummy-half, Huth lead the league in try assists until injury prematurely ended his season.
Jersey Flegg Head Coach Scott Dureau was full of praise for his skipper, who has been in the Club’s system since he was 13.
“He’s been outstanding,” Dureau said.
“He’s a really intelligent player, but he’s tough.
“His vision and smarts from dummy-half are absolutely second-to-none.”
With a year of Under 20s and a handful of Canterbury Cup games now under his belt, Dureau believes Huth will go on towards even bigger things in 2020.
“He’s got a massive future,” he said.
“With his work ethic and his skill set, I believe he’s got a big future ahead of him.”
