David Klemmer has revealed that Mitchell Pearce’s pitch was key to him signing a five-year deal which looks set to transform the Knights into NRL top eight contenders.

Klemmer has signed a five-year contract reported to be worth $4.3 million after securing a release from Canterbury.

After learning that the Knights were on the cusp of snaring one of the game’s premier props, Pearce reached out to his former State of Origin teammate. Pearce joined the Knights late last year after the Sydney Roosters lured Cooper Cronk to Bondi.

Klemmer is a devoted family man and Pearce convinced the NSW and Australia front-rower that the Knights could not only get the best out of him but that Newcastle was the right place to raise his three sons.
