Knights prop David Klemmer was fined over a contrary conduct charge after he was found to have abused an NRL match official during Newcastle's heavy loss at Penrith on Sunday.

Klemmer was handed a grade-one offence for the 75th-minute incident, which incured a $1150 fine after he submitted an early guilty plea.

Knights enforcer David Klemmer says his long-term wrist injury is "getting stronger" despite forgoing surgery.

The prop required needling for much of the NRL season after suffering ligament damage at the start of the year.

He also broke his wrist playing for NSW in the State of Origin opener but opted against an operation.

Having now returned to pre-season training after representing Australia in two recent Tests, Klemmer said he's on the improve.

"The physios have been looking after me here. They've been great to me," he said.

"The wrist feels good at the moment, it's getting stronger."

“He’s got a bony mallet injury to his finger. He needs surgical intervention to get it reduced.
