Knights name Round 7 team
Coach Nathan Brown has named a 17-man team for Saturday’s round seven match against the Brisbane Broncos.
Joint-captain Jeremy Smith is set to play his 200th NRL match however he is in doubt due to a knee injury.
Sione Mata’utia returns from injury (concussion) and replaces Jaelen Feeney in the centres, in an otherwise unchanged line-up.
After making his NRL debut last Sunday, William Pearsall is named on the bench alongside the Saifiti brothers and Pauli Pauli.
With Sione Mata’utia’s inclusion, three sets of brothers (Mata'utia, Sims, Saifiti) are named to play in the Suncorp Stadium clash.
