Player Bio

After crossing from Adelaide as a free agent, the clever half-forward made a promising start to 2013 before tearing the patella tendon in his right knee, ending his season after five games. Among the most damaging half-forwards in the game in 2008 and 2009, Knights is looking to revive his career after a horror run with injuries. Renowned for his long and accurate
left-foot kicking, he shapes as a forward and midfield option for the Tigers in 2014.

Brownlow Medal: career votes 9.
Previous AFL club: Adelaide (2005-12: 96 games, 68 goals).
Draft history: 2004 AFL Draft 2nd round selection
(Adelaide) No. 56 overall; 2012 unrestricted free agent (Richmond).
