Local product Joel Edwards has today put pen to paper by re-signing with the Newcastle Knights until the end of the 2012 season.

The Cessnock Goanna's junior is set to play his fourth first-grade game this Monday night when the Newcastle Knights take on the Manly Sea Eagles at EnergyAustralia Stadium.

The young prop followed the playing careers of Andrew Johns and Jason Taylor as a kid, and has already achieved his main footy goal for 2010 by playing first grade.

A stand out in the NYC competition of years gone by, Edwards was awarded the Knights NYC player of the year in 2008.

At just 22 years of age, Edwards has begun to establish himself as having real NRL potential.

"Joel's actually progressing really well," Knights head coach Rick Stone said.

"Particularly defensively he has shown he is definitely up to NRL standard.

"So far he has looked like he is well and truly fitting in and he has got a big future."
