Biography:

The backrower is approaching 100 NRL games and continues to grow as a player.

From Wingham, Mitch spent some of his junior years at the Knights before moving to the Canberra Raiders.

During his time in Canberra, Barnett was the 2015 NSW Cup Player of the Year.

He returned to the Knights midway through the 2016 season and immediately made a big impression with his aggressive style of play in both attack and defence.

Barnett had a breakout 2017 season which saw him take out the 2017 Danny Buderus Medal and Gladiator Award at the Club’s presentation night. He won the Player of the Year again in 2019.

Barnett made a big difference when he returned from injury last season, drawing plaudits from the likes of Andrew Johns.

He is signed until the end of 2023 leaving him primed for a massive 2021 season.
