NRL playmaker offered to Super League clubs after Will Pryce development

Newcastle Knights players......... Super League

It looks like a Newcastle Knights half-back could be on his way to Super League after struggling for NRL game time.

The Knights signed two Super League players ahead of this season, with Kai Pearce-Paul signing from Wigan Warriors and Will Pryce from Huddersfield Giants.

Pearce-Paul got right into the side early on, forming a key member of the Knights pack, but Pryce has had to be more patient – he will finally make his debut this Saturday against Parramatta Eels after being instead named in the NSW Cup side.

The Knights had been going with Jackson Hastings and Jack Cogger in the halves in recent weeks, but it hasn’t been working, with the side having lost their last three games in a row.

Now, with Pryce coming in, it seems that he’s at least third in the pecking order at the club.

With Pryce now being tried at the 6, it could be hard to imagine Tyson Gamble’s Newcastle Knights career continuing beyond the 2024 season.

He’s off-contract at the end of this year, meaning he’s free to find a new club for the next campaign.

He has started eight games this year in NRL, but was dropped to the NSW Cup side for rounds 5 and 6 and hasn’t played at all since the 11th of May.

Previously, though, he was the starting half for the 2023 season, including starting in the semi-final loss to NZ Warriors.

He also appeared regularly in 2021 and 2022 – and he’s 28 years-old, meaning he’s certainly got years ahead of him.

It seems unlikely that he’s in line for an NRL starting place at another club next year, meaning a move to Super League could be on the cards.

He caused controversy in Australia last year after telling former NRL player Willie Mason to “get f***ed” after Mason had claimed the Knights had “the worst spine in the game”, after the side made it to the semi-final.
