The Newcastle Knights are looking to pry Dragons star Tyson Frizell on a three-year deal, according to Fox Sports’ James Hooper.

According to Hooper, the Knights have met with the backrower’s camp as they look to acquire for the 2021 season.

However, the Dragons have also officially tabled the 28-year old an offer in hopes of keeping him at the Red V.

With 14 Tests for Australia and 11 State of Origin games for NSW to his name, Frizell is expected to command a deal over $800,000 a season. is reporting that his preference is to remain at the Dragons and they are the frontrunners to secure his signature.

He recently told “(the) sooner I can get [negotiations] out of the way the better it is for myself and for the club as well”.

Frizell is one of several big-name Dragons off-contract at the end of this season in a list that includes James Graham, Euan Aitken, Tim Lafai, Issac Luke, Tristan Sailor and Jack de Belin.


  1. I will go on the record here and predict a 600k contract to join Souths. Prior to a face to face 600k envelope handshake agreement with a Russell Crower’s Nana Glen Out of site Cash handout visit.

    Like Fatboy Latrell, Frizzel will be all smiles for weeks as he counts his envelope earnings, which is not disclosed on the Nrl books.

  2. Talking about Fatboy Latrell, me thinks ( like penso) he needs an immediate run-about with all his excess blubber. A walk-about at this late stage of the pre season is of little value to the great.fat.oath.

  3. Welcome to the Rabbitohs Tyson.
    Another who wants to be a part of this magnificent club for less.
    Don’t worry wombats you got 35 to pensioner Josh Morris 🤣🤣🤣🤣
    In the words of Woody… Bwaaahhhhaaahhhaaahhhaaa

  4. Mark.mybutthole deal with it
    Latrell has left the building 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

  5. Yeah I bloody reckon Kev

    Anyway I reckon Frizell would be great for the Knights, can’t say I like the dragons or have a soft spot for them but I’d like to see Frizell.

  6. I think he’ll stay at the Dragons , if he gets the same sought if offer from them. He’s been there so long, he’ll most likely want to remain a one club players.

  7. I don’t know why the knights think he will leave. Unless it’s stupid money dragons can’t match. Has more chance to play finals with the dragons then the knights.

  8. I like the knights but I just can’t see him going maybe in 12 months time if O’brien lives up to the coaching hype.

  9. They should have the money next year, Graham I would say is set to retire, de Belin if he is still in court wont be resigned or will come cheaply.

  10. Supercoach league code 157786 come join my 20 team league please only join if you will see the season through and monitor your team every week (only those who take supercoach serious). Banter is good nothing below the belt.

    Of has an O not an I Clown

  12. Not related to article…. but just watched the final of the nines. Dragons did well to make final but I HATE HATE HATE Ravalawa !!!!!! He doesn’t have a brain. Rant over 😝

  13. EOD Frizell actually debuted at Cronulla and played a few games there before moving to st George. I see the allure of Newcastle and feel they’re closer to finals than the dragons.

    Just joined IsDon, ready for a big season of supercoach
