The prop made 11 appearances in the first grade team last year, including his 50th game.

A local junior with a tireless work ethic, King continued to ply his trade after earning a regular NRL spot during the 2017 and 2018 seasons.

He is a developing front rower who is very determined and has worked hard in the gym this pre-season to be able to compete against NRL competition.

The Singleton Greyhounds junior has a never-give-up attitude and will be looking to continue in his development in 2020.

In 2018, King extended his contract until the end of the 2020 season.
