Biography:

It's hard to believe this absolute unit is still only 19 years of age.

Signed to the Knights until the end of 2022, Best has shown his raw talent despite being hampered by injuries throughout his young career.

Best dominated junior competitions in 2019, scoring seven tries in just five appearances on his way to making his NRL debut.

Cementing a spot in first grade throughout the 2020 season, Best showed he belonged by scoring eight tries in his 11 games, averaging 153 run metres per game, and even being floated as a potential NSW bolter.

With plenty of NRL experience and another full pre-season under his belt, Best is set to explode into 2021.
