MORE: Tigers playmaker Luke Brooks hoping for Mitchell Moses reunion in 2024 The 28-year-old had a year to run on his deal at the Sharks, but has been granted an early release to join Newcastle immediately. — Newcastle Knights (@NRLKnights) January 31, 2023 Knights football boss Peter Parr said that Miller will give O'Brien flexibility. “This signing provides us with more options in our backline, Parr said. “We have signed Lachlan predominantly to play fullback, we also believe he has the versatility to play multiple positions.
He previously played as a hooker or five-eighth for the Newcastle Knights, Parramatta Eels, Wests Tigers and the Cronulla-Sutherland Sharks in the National Rugby League. Morris was selected on the bench for Country Origin to play City Origin in 2002 and 2003. Background Morris was born in Scone, New South Wales, Australia.  He is the uncle of Cronulla Sharks player Teig Wilton.
Lachie Miller signs with Newcastle Knights, paving the way for Ponga's five-eighth switchNewcastle have landed a replacement for Kalyn Ponga at fullback, signing Sharks flyer Lachlan Miller on a three-year deal. Adam O'Brien confirmed last week that Ponga would make a permanent shift to the halves in 2023, leaving the No. 1 position vacant at the Knights heading into the season. Bailey Hodgson and Dane Gagai had been training at fullback during pre-season, but the latest development would indicate that O'Brien was not sold on either option. Miller was a standout for Australia in Rugby Sevens, but made the switch to rugby league last year and scored three tries in seven appearances for Cronulla.
 Playing career Morris played for the Scone Thoroughbreds in his junior years. He made his NRL debut in round 17 of the 2001 NRL season for the Newcastle Knights against the Parramatta Eels at Parramatta Stadium on 22 June 2001. Having won the 2001 NRL Premiership, the Newcastle club travelled to England to play the 2002 World Club Challenge against Super League champions, the Bradford Bulls. Morris was selected to play from the interchange bench in Newcastle's loss.
