Knights name Round 10 squad

Coach Nathan Brown has named his squad to take on the Penrith Panthers in Indigenous Round at McDonald Jones Stadium this Friday evening.

There are plenty of changes, with a number of younger players getting the nod this week.

Prop Josh King comes into the starting side for his first NRL appearance of 2018, replacing Jacob Lillyman who is out of the squad entirely.

Brock Lamb also returns, taking over from Jack Cogger who now sits in the extended squad.

In further changes, Danny Levi comes onto the bench in place of Jamie Buhrer, while Luke Yates is back on the bench after narrowly missing out last week.

To round out the switches, Mitch Barnett has been named in the second row and Aidan Guerra at lock.
