Knights Utility, Chris Bailey, has agreed to terms for a further two years, re-signing with Newcastle until at least the end of the 2008 season.
An Inverell Hawks junior, Bailey was a member of Northern Blues 2005 Premiership winning side in the Newcastle Rugby League competition, before joining the Knights in the pre-season.
�It�s great to have the distractions out of the way and to be able to concentrate on my playing future,� Bailey said.
�It was a big decision to make but I believe I�ve taken the right option.�
Bailey�s representative honours include Newcastle, New South Wales Country and back to back selections for the New South Wales Residents in 2005 & 2006.
Chris is also the brother of former Kangaroos and New South Wales Origin back rower, Phil Bailey.
