Knights name Round 23 team
Coach Nathan Brown has named an 18-man squad for Sunday’s Round 23 match against the Penrith Panthers at Hunter Stadium.
Tyler Randell and Mitch Barnett return from injury and suspension respectively, while Pat Mata’utia is added to an extended bench.
Jacob Saifiti moves into the starting line-up, replacing the injured Jeremy Smith (calf) while Danny Levi is also omitted due to injury (back).
Nathan Ross is named on the wing but remains in some doubt with a hamstring injury, however Sione Mata’utia is a chance to be a late inclusion. He will see a specialist this week for a clearance to return from a jaw injury.
