Late mail: Knights veteran makes shock return

Nathan Brown has confirmed his 17-man team.

The nib Newcastle Knights host Canterbury-Bankstown at McDonald Jones Stadium on Saturday and welcome back co-captain Jamie Buhrer from injury.

It's a stunning return from injury by Buhrer.

Only a matter of weeks after fearing his season may be over through injury, the co-captain has been cleared to play.

He replaces Luke Yates on the bench.

Both Nathan Ross and Brock Lamb dropped off an extended bench and featured in the ISP NSW earlier in the day.
