    Newcastle Knights Jersey Flegg coach Scott Dureau is currently undergoing chemotherapy.


    The 32-year-old had surgery late last year to remove a tumor which has spread through his body.


    “I had surgery in 2014 to remove a brain tumor and have been going for regular scans ever since,” Dureau explained.


    “In November 2018, I saw (surgeon) Charlie Teo for a routine check-up and it was discovered that the tumor had returned.


    “I had surgery and was given the all clear but unfortunately, it has spread to my liver which is why I’m having chemotherapy at the moment.”


    Knights Chief Executive Officer, Phil Gardner, said Dureau and his family have the full support of the Club behind him.


    “Scott has been courageous throughout this process,” Mr Gardner said.


    “He was a courageous player on the field and has displayed those same qualities away from it.


    “We will support him and his family as best we can.”


    Elite Pathways Development Coach for the Knights, Dureau has been inundated with support, from the players to the staff, he is grateful for the love he and his family continue to receive.


    “Phil Gardner has given me and my family massive support,” Dureau said.


    “Nathan Brown and Dean Noonan have also been unbelievable.


    “The Club has backed me all the way through this and kept in constant contact with myself and family to help us through this pretty tough time.”

    There will be a standing ovation and minute of applause in the 7th minute of our first home game against Cronulla to show support for Scott.
