The Newcastle Knights has named a 17-man team for Saturday’s Round 25 match against the Parramatta Eels at Hunter Stadium.

The Knights welcome back five-eighth Jarrod Mullen from a calf injury while Timana Tahu will play his first NRL game of the season after being named on the bench.

Michael Dobson, who covered for Mullen last round, returns to NSW Cup and Joseph Tapine returns to NYC. The Under 20s are further bolstered by the return of fullback Jake Mamo, who was rested last weekend due to an ongoing issue with his back.

The forward pack remains unchanged from last weekend’s line-up, with David Fa’alogo partnering Willie Mason up front and Adam Cuthbertson at lock.

All three grades are in action at Hunter Stadium this Saturday. Gates open at 10.30am, NYC kick off at 10.40am, NSW Cup play Newtown at 12.40pm before the main game at 3pm.
