Liam Knight - South Sydney Player Report

Prop

FG Player - 1144

Knight was a member of South Sydney premiership decider making squad in 2021.

Knight was born in Alice Springs, but played his junior football on the Central Coast before entering the Manly system and then playing with the System Roosters and Canberra. When driving to Canberra he was called by Wayne Bennett to come and join South Sydney. He made his South Sydney first grade premiership and senior grade debut in the 2019 Round 1 clash against the Sydney Roosters at the Sydney Cricket Ground.

Knight is a tall strong running prop, with a good offload. In 2022 Knight suffered a bad leg injury, that kept him out for the rest of 2022 and early 2023.

Knight played 5 seasons with South Sydney, playing 66 first grade premiership games. In total he played 76 senior grade preiership games with South Sydney. Knight played his last South Sydney first premiership game in the 2023 Round 19 clash against Canterbury-Bankstown at Stadium Australia, before playing his final South Sydney senior grade premiership match in the 2023 Round 20 clash against Parramatta at the Western Sydney Stadium the following week. He was then released midweek to play out the rest of the 2023 season with Canterbury-Bankstown.
