NRL 2020: Jake Clifford signs with Knights, Keaon Koloamatangi, Rabbitohs, Transfer Centre, signings tracker

The Knights have landed their man in Jake Clifford on a two-year deal starting in 2022.

Newcastle announced the signing of the playmaker on Tuesday.

The 22-year-old was poised to join the Knights next season after being given permission by the Cowboys to negotiate with rivals for an opportunity in 2021. However, North Queensland went back on that and stood firm on the young half to see out the final year of his contract.

Clifford, a former Queensland Under 20s representative, has played 35 NRL games. He debuted in the Prime Minister’s XIII in 2018 after just six NRL games.

“When the opportunity arose to sign Jake, I thought it was a perfect fit for both parties,” Knights head or recruitment Clint Zammit said.
