Knights name Round 5 team

Coach Nathan Brown has named his 21-man squad for this Saturday's home match against the Brisbane Broncos in Junior League Appreciation Round.

Following the devastating injury to Tautau Moga, Ken Sio is the man to step into the side's back line.

He has been named to start on the wing, with Nathan Ross moving to centre.

The rest of the first 17 is unchanged, although Cory Denniss comes into the squad in the number 21 jersey.
