See what the nib Newcastle Knights players have been getting up to in their down time.

We've been keeping across the social media accounts of our troops and this is what they've been up to.

RESPECT FOR THE OG

Meet John 'JT' Thomas.

He's the team manager, has been at the club for 30 years and is loved by the playing group.

COMMUNITY SPIRIT

Earlier in the week, Josh King and Mitch Barnett loaded a truck filled with donations for the people of the mid north coast who have been impacted by the fires.

HAIRY WORK

Sione Mata'utia is letting the locks grow. 

HARD DAY'S WORK

Bradman Best had a big day at training this week.

So big, he crashed for a nap.
