Knights name Round 25 team

nib Newcastle Knights coach Nathan Brown has named his 21-man squad for Friday's match against the Canberra Raiders at GIO Stadium.

In a big boost, fan favourite Nathan Ross returns at fullback after suffering a back injury in Round 22.

20-year-old Jack Cogger has also been named at five-eighth in what will be his first NRL appearance of 2017.

He replaces Brock Lamb, who's injury last Saturday sees him ruled out for the remainder of the season.

In other team news, Mickey Paea comes onto the bench for Luke Yates, who was also injured last round.

Sione Mata'utia has been ruled out as a precaution, after suffering a concussion in Round 24.
