Following the Newcastle Knights' statement earlier today, the Club confirms all players and staff have been paid on time.
It is unfortunate the rumour today, which the Club believes has come from a disgruntled player who was not re-signed for next season, has caused considerable speculation.
The Clubs players, coaches and staff are all looking forward to next season and beyond under the ownership of Nathan Tinkler and the Hunter Sports Group.
As captain Kurt Gidley tweeted earlier today, "I have never doubted for ONE second what Nathan Tinkler has done & is doing for our great club & town! His passion & commitment absolutely 2nd to none. I feel proud & excited to be a current player at the @NRLKnights under his ownership!"

Contrary to a report earlier on Tuesday, the wages have been paid to Newcastle Knights staff and players on time and in the normal course of business.
As per normal business, wages are processed on the 15th of each month, and cleared on the 16th into individual accounts.
"This is an absolute non issue at the Knights," CEO Matt Gidley said.
"I have yet to field one phone call or enquiry from an employee or player in regards to this matter."
