Jake Mamo and the nib Newcastle Knights have mutually agreed to part ways, releasing Mamo from the final year of his contract.

The 22-year-old made his NRL debut in 2014 and went on to play 29 games.

“Jake should be proud of what he has achieved at the Club and we thank him for his contribution,” coach Nathan Brown said.

“Jake has our very best wishes for the future.”

Mamo has signed a two year contract with the Huddersfield Giants. He will continue to train with the Knights until a visa is arranged.

The fullback is looking forward to the opportunity to play in the English Super League and securing the fullback position under coach Rick Stone at the Giants.

“Thank you to all the fans and everyone that has supported me, and to the Knights for the opportunity,” Mamo said.

“While I am going to miss playing for the Club I grew up supporting, I am excited for the opportunity to play and live overseas.”

  1. I think this will be good for Jake. He can get some good game time in and maybe one day come back with a bit more experience and a level head. Also, this is great for the Knights as they can now bring Wardle over this year in a swap deal, which this article has just completely left out.
