The Newcastle Knights has named a 17-man team for Friday night’s Round 20 match against the Sydney Roosters at Hunter Stadium.
The Knights are without skipper Kurt Gidley, who has been ruled out due to a low-grade adductor injury, but welcome back winger James McManus from a foot injury.
Tyrone Roberts shifts into the halves alongside Jarrod Mullen for Friday’s clash against the Roosters, with Travis Waddell named on the bench.
Chris Houston, who missed last weekend’s game due to a knee injury, is expected to be out for 2-3 weeks following surgery on Monday.
