Knights to an­a­lyse deal

Townsville Bulletin - - Sport -

THE New­cas­tle Knights board will meet later to­day to dis­sect the $ 100 mil­lion takeover bid from coal mag­nate Nathan Tin­kler. The deal was de­scribed by Knights chief ex­ec­u­tive Steve Bur­ras­ton as the best in NRL his­tory. The meet­ing was orig­i­nally sched­uled for yes­ter­day, but was post­poned 24 hours to al­low all board mem­bers to an­a­lyse the hefty doc­u­ment in more de­tail. In­cred­i­bly, the deal de­scribed by club chair­man Robert Tew as a ‘‘ mi­rage’’ less than a fort­night ago, was tagged by Bur­ras­ton as the best ever of­fer to an NRL club.
