Richie Fa'aoso
Likely to leave Knights at season end

Hard charger Richie Fa’aoso is resigned to leaving the Newcastle Knights at the end of the season and remains open-minded about the prospect of joining a rival NRL club before the June 30 transfer deadline.

The 28-year-old Tongan international is considering two-year contract offers from two Sydney NRL teams and Japanese rugby union club Panasonic Wild Knights.
