Knights name Round 6 squad

Head coach Nathan Brown has named his Round 6 team, with Mitch Barnett's one-match suspension triggering a forward pack reshuffle.

Herman Ese'ese moves to lock as he continues his impressive start to life in red and blue, with Daniel Saifiti coming off the bench to start in the front row alongside Jacob Lillyman.

Danny Levi also retains his spot on the bench after making his first NRL appearance of the season last weekend, while Jacob Saifiti comes onto the bench to fill the hole left by brother Daniel.
