‘No role. None at all’: Knights boss denies players sacked coach

Newcastle chief executive Phil Gardner has denied the Knights playing group had anything to do with coach Nathan Brown leaving the club last week.

Brown resigned two weeks ago but was set to coach the final three games of the NRL season. But after Newcastle was destroyed by the Wests Tigers in the following game, Brown fell on his sword and walked early.

Explaining to do: Newcastle CEO Phil Gardner has been in damage control since Nathan Brown and the Knights parted company.

Gardner has been in damage control over the past week after Newcastle legend Andrew Johns accused Knights management of sabotaging the club’s season.

Gardner offered Johns “any role” at the club but said his sabotage comments were not “accurate” before absolving the players any responsibility for Brown’s downfall.
