Biography:

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 made 18 appearances in 2019, across six different positions. His season ran largely uninterrupted, aside from a three-week spell midseason thanks to a sternum injury.

From bench utility to fullback, to five eight to halfback, to centre and even the wing, Kurt Mann has covered them all and then some.

Mann showed his worth in every position he was tasked to cover, racking up a try, five try assists, three-line breaks and 20 tackle breaks.

He also broke the 1000 metre barrier for the season, averaging 56 per game. Not bad considering most of his games off the interchange bench were covering at hooker.
