Knights are pleased to announce utility back Kevin Naiqama has today re-signed a one-year contract with the Club.
Naiqama joined the Knights in 2008, made his debut in 2010 but only managed to play one NRL game before the 2012 season kicked off.
After a strong pre-season, Naiqama has relished his chance in first grade this season; playing five of his six total NRL games under coach Wayne Bennett.
"I am very happy to get another year at the Knights and to keep playing under Wayne," Naiqama said after signing his contract on Friday afternoon.
"It has been great getting more opportunities this year, to show what I have got and I am grateful for the faith Wayne has showed in me.
"I look forward to finishing this year on a high note and having an even bigger one next year."
The 23-year old has earned high praise from coach Wayne Bennett.
"We are really excited Kevin wants to stay with us," Bennett said.
"He has been quite a find and a real difference in all the games he has played this season.
"He is young and enthusiastic and brings a lot to the team; the future is looking good for him."
