The Newcastle Knights has named a 19-man squad for Sunday’s NSW Cup Grand Final against the Penrith Panthers at Allianz Stadium.

The side is unchanged from Sunday’s preliminary final with the addition of James Elias and Toka Likiliki to an extended bench.

Michael Dobson, who injured his foot last weekend, will need to pass a fitness test later in the week to play in Sunday’s match.

The Knights and Panthers have played against each other on two occasions already this season, with a win each. The Knights won the first match in Round 1 in Penrith before the Panthers won the second encounter in Round 9.

The winner of the NSW Cup Grand Final plays for the National Championship against Queensland's Intrust Super Cup premiers a week later on October 5, prior to the NRL Grand Final at ANZ Stadium.
