Ahead of the 2020 season, newcastleknights.com.au sat down with new signing Jayden Brailey in an effort to get to know him a little better.

Who am I: Jayden Brailey

Who is most important to me: My family and my girlfriend

Greatest off-field achievement: Buying my first house

Something you wouldn’t know about me: I’ve walked the Kokoda track, back in 2017

I’d be lost without: My family and my partner

What I love most about living in Newcastle: The beaches, and  all the people so far

I grew up in: Menai, in the Shire

People would describe me as: I’m pretty shy at first but when you get to know me I can be out there. A pretty good bloke

As a kid my hero was: My Dad, for sure

They were my hero because: He did so much for me. I think mum use to work big hours when I was really young, so he used to take me to the park. He taught me a lot growing up about footy

The last book I read was: I’m currently reading Paul Gallen’s book. I think my name might pop up somewhere throughout it, so I’m trying to read up

My favourite thing to do in Newcastle is: I’m still looking around to be honest. The boys have shown me Lotus café, I like going to Lotus. Or even just going down to the Surf house at Merewether

My greatest on field moment: My debut, and when I played in the World Club Challenge in 2017 over in England
