The wrecking ball: Marzhew on start to the year and team role

Fast becoming a fan favourite in the red and blue, nib Newcastle Knights winger Greg Marzhew hasn't taken a backward step since arriving at the start of the season.

The powerful outside-back joined from the Gold Coast Titans during the pre-season and has averaged just under 200 metres per game, 195 to be exact, from his first seven appearances. Listen on Apple or Spotify.

Combined with seven tries, including two on Club debut in Round 4, Greg has enjoyed his start to life in Newcastle.

The 26-year-old joined the KNIGHTS // HQ Podcast to talk about the move to the Club and his role in the team from the tough carries out of our own end to scoring in the corner up the other. 


"I want the boys to know that that is my game play," Marzhew said on the KNIGHTS // HQ Podcast.

"If we're ever struck trying to get out of our try area, I want to be the guy to get us on the roll.

"Because I know the boys rely on me for that, I put my hand up to try and get us out of those situations.

Our hosts, Jae and Mat, got to know the Auckland-born talent a little bit more, including his late introduction to rugby league.

Marzhew previously travelled the world as a hip-hop dancer, representing New Zealand in the junior division at the world hip-hop championships.

Greg only picked up a league ball in his teen years after moving from New Zealand in 2011 and getting an opportunity down in Melbourne before moves to the Gold Coast Titans and Parramatta Eels.

"I was really zoned into dancing and I went to America for dancing too," Marzhew said.

"Footy... I started kind of late.

"The competition was Las Vegas too, which was cool."
