NRL news 2022, Newcastle Knights part ways with trainer Hayden Knowles after David Klemmer drama

Newcastle has parted ways with experienced trainer Hayden Knowles, according to the Newcastle Herald.

Knowles is one of the most experienced and respected rugby league trainers in the game, and has worked with a number of clubs.

He was recently embroiled in a bizarre incident at the Knights when he was yelled at by prop David Klemmer during a game.

Klemmer was subsequently reported to the HR department of the Wests Group – which owns the club – and was stood down for a week.

Earlier this month, Knowles spoke to the Sydney Morning Herald about that saga.

“The swearing wasn’t the issue. That’s what everyone is losing sight of,” Knowles said.

“For me it’s not personal with Klem. It wouldn’t matter if it was Kalyn Ponga, Nathan Cleary, Junior Paulo or Payne Haas.

“It wouldn’t matter who it is. If someone puts themselves before the team, I would forever die by the fact that I won’t tolerate that behaviour. The behaviour is what I was against, not the person.

“The swearing is not the issue. Swearing doesn’t bother me. I feel like my reputation has taken a hit. I’ve worked 23 years to build that.”

The exit of Knowles comes just weeks after Peter Parr arrived at the club as the new football boss.
