Charges have now been laid over the altercation involving Newcastle Knights player Jacob Saifiti.

A 28 year old Adamstown attended Newcastle Police Station just before 5pm yesterday where he was arrested and charged with reckless grievous bodily harm.

He's been given conditional bail to face Newcastle Local Court on January 10.

Saifiti was punched outside Hamilton's Greenroof Hotel early last Sunday morning during a scuffle.

He fell awkwardly suffering a broken leg. The prop is looking at three months on the sidelines.

The Knights have previously said they would wait until the police investigation was complete before handing down any disciplinary action against Saifiti.
