Newcastle Knights legend Kurt Gidley has signed a one-year deal with the Warrington Wolves for 2016 making this season his last in the National Rugby League.
The deal will see Gidley join the Wolves with an option for a second year.
“I have felt sad about leaving, I have felt excited about a new challenge but I am mostly relieved that I have reached the stage of making this decision,” Gidley said.
“It was a tough one. Newcastle people have been great; they are very supportive, both in good times and in bad.
“I appreciate the support I have had, and the way the town supports the team.”
