Mata'utia announces Knights departure

The 26-year-old returned to the Knights in 2016 after two seasons at the Dragons, but was unable to come to an agreement on a contract extension, ending his time in the Hunter for a second time. 

Mata'utia never missed a game for the Knights this season and was regarded as one of their more consistent players on the paddock, scoring seven tries and averaging 85 metres. 

He took to social media to deliver the news on Thursday. 

Mata'utia charged with tripping

Mata'utia faces a fine of $1100 if he enters an early guilty plea but risks a $1500 fine if he unsuccessfully fights the charge at the NRL judiciary.

There were no other charges from the weekend's Round 18 matches.
