Biography:

Still just 29 years of age, there's not much Tyson Frizell hasn't done in rugby league.

A dynamic back rower hailing from Wollongong, Frizell has played nearly 200 NRL games in a career spanning the better part of a decade, with two seasons at Cronulla and eight with St George Illawarra.

Frizell made his Origin debut for New South Wales in in 2016, taking two series wins on his way to making the right edge his own in the Origin arena over the last five years.

Making his Test debut for Wales in 2011, Frizell has gone on to play 14 times for Australia, winning the World Cup in 2017.

Moving up the M1 to Newcastle in 2021 on a three year deal, Frizell will look to tick off one of the only things he's yet to achieve: Winning a premiership.

Frizell is contracted to the Knights until at least the end of the 2023 season.
