The Newcastle Knights have officially announced that six players from their 2018 squad will depart the club.
“I enjoyed all my time here at the Knights.
“It’s been a hard couple of years, but I’ve learnt a lot. I can’t thank the Club enough for what they’ve done for me over the last few years.
“It’s been a long career and a special 12 months here,” Lillyman said.
“Lots of fond memories.
“During the week there was a lot of lasts, last gym session with the boys, last training session. It’s a bit surreal but I’ve picked a good place to finish off, that’s for sure.”
Knights departing players:
-Jack Cogger (Bulldogs)
-Nick Meaney (Bulldogs)
-Chris Heighington (retirement)
-Jacob Lillyman (retirement)
