Newcastle cult hero Adam MacDougall will be the NRL's oldest player in 2011 after announcing he will play another season with the Knights.

The 35-year-old centre will take his career into a 17th season after signing a one-year extension.

"I'm looking forward to playing in 2011 in what shapes as an exciting year for the club with the re-opening of the new grandstand (at EneryAustralia Stadium) and the acquisition of several key players," said MacDougall, who has played five Tests and 11 State of Origin games for NSW.

"With the team that we'll be fielding, I am very confident that we'll be playing finals football at the end of 2011.

"Obviously the contract has taken a while to finalise, however I've always been comfortable with the process and just wanted to ensure that we did it right."

The Warriors' Steve Price, at 36, was the oldest player in the competition this year but failed to play a game due to injury and announced his retirement.
