Biography:

The prop made seven appearances in the first grade team last year after breaking the 50-game barrier in 2019.

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 off-season to be able to compete against NRL competition.

The Singleton Greyhounds junior has a never-give-up attitude and enjoyed a much improved season in 2020.
