Knights name Round 3 squad

Coach Nathan Brown has named his 21-man squad for the much anticipated Round 3 match against the Sydney Roosters at Allianz Stadium.

Jamie Buhrer is back into the side after being a late omission in Round 2 due to a minor foot injury, pushing Jacob Saifiti back to the extended bench.
There are no other changes, following two hard-fought victories to start the season off.

In what will be an interesting subplot for the Round 3 clash, five former Roosters will be coming up against their old side in Mitchell Pearce, Connor Watson, Aidan Guerra, Shaun Kenny-Dowall and Tautau Moga.

The match kicks off at 6.30pm on Sunday evening.
