Biography:

A hard-running backrower, Fitzgibbon enjoyed another big season in 2019.

Having solidified himself as a starting first grader following a strong finish to 2017, the left-edge specialist is sure to catapult his name into the conversation for representative selection in the coming seasons.

As a mainstay in the Club’s Reserve Grade side in 2016, the South Newcastle junior made his first NRL appearance for 2017 in Round 10 and went on to become the second highest try scorer for the Knights that season, with eight tries.

A hard worker who runs fearless lines, he finished last season with four tries and a 92% tackle efficiency to his name, solidifying his reputation as being crucial to both the attacking and defensive side of the Knights’ game.
