Knights return on cards for Quinn

Anthony Quinn

Return to Knights possible

The Newcastle Knights are exploring the prospect of bringing home-grown junior Anthony Quinn back to finish his National Rugby League career where it started.

Homesick after six seasons at the Storm, which included two grand final appearances and one premiership that was later stripped by the NRL, Quinn will return to Newcastle shortly to begin working as an electrician once he completes his TAFE studies in Melbourne.

The former NSW Origin winger has held informal discussions this month with Knights chief executive and former Newcastle teammate Matt Gidley about the possibility of him rejoining the club they both left at the end of 2006.

The Knights have little room to move under the salary cap but the Newcastle Herald has been told they are investigating whether they can include Quinn, pictured, as a second-tier player.
