5:59 am on 21 February 2013

Australian mining tycoon Nathan Tinkler has held onto his ownership of the Newcastle Knights.

The Australian Federal Court has dismissed an attempt by the Australian Tax Office to wind up the Knights and its parent company, Hunter Sports Group, over mounting debts.

The fate of the Newcastle Jets A-League club is yet to be decided, along with a number of another Tinkler companies.

The case returns to court in April.
