Signing from the Dragons in 2019, Kurt Mann has proved to the Knights version of Mr. Fix-It.
The 26-year-old debuted for the Melbourne Storm in 2014 and has played a utility role across all three of his clubs thus far.
Originally signed as a hooker, Mann played almost every game in 2020, cementing a spot at five-eighth before injuries forced him to cover the No.9 role.
Mann enjoyed career-best form throughout last season, coming second only to Kalyn Ponga in the Danny Buderus Medal count.
Mann showed his worth in every position he was tasked to cover, racking up six tries, eight try assists, five line breaks and 56 tackle breaks.
He also ran for almost 2000 run metres for the season, averaging 90 per game. Not bad considering most of his games were either as a playmaker or covering at hooker.
