11:54 am on 1 October 2011

Former Test and New South Wales hooker Danny Buderus will return to the National Rugby League next season to see out his playing career with former club Newcastle.

Both Buderus and the Knights confirmed on Saturday the 33-year-old had secured a release from the final year of his contract with Super League club Leeds and would link up with incoming Newcastle coach Wayne Bennett on a one-year deal.

Buderus made the announcement after helping the Rhinos to a 26-24 victory over Warrington to book a berth in next weekend's grand final, ensuring his Super League career will end in style.
