Where are they now? 2020 departures

In the chaotic world of contracts and player movement, it’s easy to lose track of where players end up.

That's why has done some digging and tracked the movements of the nib Newcastle Knights' 2020 departures, in order to check in on where their careers have taken them since they moved on from the Club.

Aiden Guerra

After calling time on his storied 211-Game career in October last year, Guerra has kept busy in his first 12 months away from rugby league.

Guerra has jumped right into his cooking, with the backrower posting regularly to his 'Dinner with Dos' Instagram account and even being snapped in a popular Italian restaurant in Sydney.

Guerra also appeared alongside wife Belinda on Channel 10's Buy to Build program and is involved in the recently opened Fluid Form Pilates Studio in Byron Bay.

Tim Glasby

After two seasons at the Knights, Tim Glasby was medically retired midway through the 2020 season.

Following retirement, Glasby returned to the Melbourne Storm, the Club where he won a premiership in 2017.

Glasby continues to be employed by the Storm as the Club's Recruitment Officer and Pathways Manager, operating out of the Sunshine Coast.

Andrew McCullough

After answering an SOS from Adam O'Brien during the season shutdown, McCullough spent the remainder of the 2020 season in the Hunter on a six month contract.

The 31-year-old departed the Club and returned to Brisbane at the conclusion of the campaign, training with the Broncos for the pre-season before striking a deal to reunite with Anthony Griffin at St George Illawarra.

McCullough played 21 games for the Dragons in a strong campaign and even managed to secure the Queensland No.9 jumper for Game II of the Origin series.

McCullough has two years remaining on his Dragons deal, and should cross the 300 game barrier midway through 2022.

Herman Ese'ese

After making his Titans debut in Round 8, Ese'ese went on to play two more games for the Gold Coast before being dismissed in the Magic Round clash with Penrith.

Ese'ese didn't feature again after picking up a three game suspension, with the forward playing six games for Tweed Heads in the Queensland Cup.

Ese'ese remains contracted to the Gold Coast for the 2022 season.

Sione Mata'utia

After an emotional exit from the Knights in the 2020 off-season, Mata'utia soon linked with St Helens in the English Super League.

Mata'utia has impressed for the red and whites in his maiden campaign in the UK, making 25 appearances and scoring five tries.

He also played a key role in securing a spot in the Super League Grand Final, setting up two tries in a 38-6 preliminary final win over Leeds.

The 25-year-old will feature for the Saints as they take on James Maloney's Catalans Dragons in Saturday night's Grand Final at Old Trafford.

Tautau Moga

After departing the Knights following three years in the Hunter, Moga was picked up by eventual runners-up South Sydney in the lead up to the 2021 pre-season.

Moga featured in just one NRL contest, coming off the bench in the final round against St George Illawarra.

The centre played six games in the NSW Cup side, crossing for one try before the competition was prematurely shutdown due to COVID-19.

Moga has now signed with the Dragons for next year.

Mason Lino

A goal-kicking whiz who spent two seasons at the Knights, Lino departed the Club in 2020 to take up a three-year contract at Wakefield in the UK.

Lino made 23 appearances for Wakefield, scoring five tries and 75 goals in an impressive first year.

Wakefield finished the season in 10th.
