Knights name Round 2 Jersey Flegg team

Jersey Flegg  coach Todd Lowrie has named an unchanged 18-man squad for Saturday’s Round 2 clash with the Wests Tigers at Cessnock Sportsground.

After a hat-trick last week Matt Cooper confidently retains his spot in the fullback role with new halves pairing Nash Birch and Hayden Loughrey again getting the nod in the six and seven.
