One of the Newcastle's beloved favourites could be leaving the Hunter after the Knights are looking to offload the cult hero.

Winger Nathan Ross has been much loved by Novocastrians for many years, but after a disappointing 2018 season plagued by injury, the Knights seem set to let Ross go, according to The Mole.

Ross, 30 years of age, only managed 15 games this season and scored just two tries in what was a season to forget for the winger.

Newcastle seem to be underwhelmed with Ross' performances this season, injury or not, given his past two seasons where he crossed the line 19 times for what was a struggling Knights side.

Groin and hernia injuries hampered Ross' season, with him now only undergoing major surgery to rectify those issues.

The Knights have told rival NRL clubs, as well as English Super League teams, they are free to explore contracting Ross to their club for 2019 despite him having another two-years left on his contract.

Ross believes he still has plenty to offer the game of NRL given he reaches full fitness and versatility.

Being able to play fullback, wing or centre positions is a valuable asset Ross could bring to any club for the 2019 season and beyond.
