Social: Hymel's massive move, McCullough's farewell

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.


In a massive announcement last weekend, our very own Hymel Hunt announced his engagement to long-time partner Elli Smith.

Social media erupted soon after with the love flowing from all the boys towards the hard working winger and his beautiful fiancé. 

From everyone in the Knights family, congratulations to two of our favourites!

With the Brisbane Broncos getting training back underway north of the border, it was finally time last week for Andrew 'Chainsaw' McCullough to complete his move back to the Queensland capital.

He was farewelled in style by his Knights team mates, along with a special guest appearance by Queensland Origin hero (and ex-Knight) Dane Gagai.

It seems like there was a touch of car trouble, with Mat Croker and Kalyn Ponga finding themselves in a spot of bother last week.


After both boys spent time away from Newcastle throughout the off-season, house mates Connor Watson and Kalyn Ponga have been enjoying spending some quality time together as pre-season gets underway.

Speaking of KP, the custodian launched yet another business venture this week, a Pacific Ale called 'Goo-C'.
