Newcastle winger Shaun Kenny-Dowall will depart for the UK at the end of the season, and has reportedly played his last game for the Knights.

Kenny-Dowall has been ruled out of Sunday's clash with the Panthers with a knee injury, which will bring his three seasons with the Knights to an end.

The 31-year-old has played 277 games in the NRL for the Roosters and Knights across 13 seasons, and departs with a premiership medal to his name.

Kenny-Dowall was lethal with ball in hand for the Tricolours, with only Anthony Minichiello scoring more than his 121 tries for the club.

The winger spoke to News Corp about his decision to head overseas, and is thankful for his long career at NRL level.

“I was a bit emotional this week when I found out this was going to be my last year,” Kenny-Dowall said.

“I’ve been reflecting a lot. It’s been an unbelievable journey. No one would’ve thought I would’ve played in this game for so long.

“I knew from a kid I wanted to play in the NRL and play for my country. I would’ve been happy to play just one season.”
