Newcastle Knights NSW Cup coach Rick Stone has named an 18-man side to play Wentworthville on Saturday, in week one of the NSW Cup finals.

Chad Redman has been named despite being issued with a grade two striking charge. The Club decided on Tuesday to challenge the grading of the charge and will face the NSW Rugby League Tribunal on Wednesday night at NRL HQ.

Tyler Randell, who made his NRL debut after playing in NSW Cup in the game before last Saturday, will be monitored this week following a head clash in the NRL win.

Honeti Tuha is added to an extended bench in an otherwise unchanged line-up for Saturday's final at Leichhardt Oval.

After finishing second, if the Knights win, they advance through to week three of the finals however if they lose, they will be afforded a second chance and play in week two of the finals.
