Knights name Round 8 squad

Coach Nathan Brown has named his Round 8 team to take on the Manly Sea Eagles at Lottoland, with a number of changes.

Connor Watson returns from injury to partner Jack Cogger in the halves, who moves to his more natural position of halfback.

Luke Yates also secures a place on the bench following his efforts as a late inclusion last weekend, while Jacob Lillyman is only in the extended squad.

Daniel Saifiti keep his place in the starting front following a strong showing against the Wests Tigers.
