VOTE: Best halfback in Knights history

Let's just be clear, we know who you're going to vote for...

Although Andrew Johns was arguably the greatest nib Newcastle Knight in history, there's still others who have proved themselves in that famous No.7 jumper. 

Cast your vote in the poll below.

Note: No current Knights players were considered.


Andrew Johns

Knights Appearances: 249

Years: 1993-07

Shall we start with the obvious?

The Eighth Immortal and arguably the greatest of all time, Andrew ‘Joey’ Johns did it all in his time at the Knights winning three Dally M Player of the Year awards (1998, 99, 2002), two Golden Boots (1999, 2001) and two Premierships along with the Clive Churchill Medal in 2001.

His skill had no equal in the game and even though unlucky injuries meant the back-end of his career hit a few speed bumps, he provided many Knights fans memories of a lifetime.   


Scott Dureau

Knights Appearances: 42

Years: 2007-10

Scott Dureau is as resilient as they come, and he showed that in his playing days along with his high footy IQ and impressive kicking game.

Although he moved on to Catalans after four seasons at the Knights, he was largely depended upon in his time.


Leo Dynevor

Knights Appearances: 19

Years: 1997

While many remember Joey as the halfback of the 1997 Grand Final, many of his teammates attribute Leo Dynevor’s contribution as the reason they got there in the first place.

The crafty halfback from Murgon, QLD, was instrumental throughout his only season with the Club and shone with eight tries to his name and multiple try assists as well.


Trent Hodkinson

Knights Appearances: 40

Years: 2016-17

Hodkinson spent 30 of his 40 matches as captain of the side and led with pride through some pretty tough times for both himself and the Club.

The State of Origin winning playmaker was known for his ability to organise and control the play, but his skill of running with ball in hand was also greatly admired.


Matt Rodwell

Knights Appearances: 44

Years: 1990, 92-93

Rodwell burst on the scene as a 19-year-old even winning the Dally M Rookie of the Year award in 1992.

Not only did Rodwell shine on the field as an energetic halfback, he also made a bit of a name for himself in the ‘Simply the Best’ advertisement.
