LONDON, June 4 AFP - Former Australian international halfback Craig Gower will link with Newcastle in the NRL after playing his last match for the London Broncos.

The 35-year-old, who quit as Broncos captain last week, has been released from the 18 months remaining on his contract with the Super League club.

It is understood Gower has agreed to a short-term deal with the Knights to provide cover for utility player Kurt Gidley and Danny Buderus.

London chief executive Gus Mackay said: "We'd like to thank Craig for his time in London with the Broncos. He was an exemplary trainer and always gave 100 percent on the pitch."

Gower joined the Broncos ahead of the 2012 season and signed a contract extension last November taking him to the end of 2014. His appearance in last Saturday's 30-30 draw with Castleford was his 45th for the club.

Gower led Penrith to the 2003 NRL title before switching codes to join French rugby union club Bayonne in 2007. He went on to represent Italy before returning to rugby league with the Broncos ahead of the 2012 season.
