Late Mail: Ponga playing as Brown confirms final 17

nib Newcastle Knights coach Nathan Brown has confirmed his Round 21 NRL team for Friday's match against the Wests Tigers at McDonald Jones Stadium.

Kalyn Ponga has been confirmed to start despite nursing an ankle injury earlier in the week.

Earlier in the week, Connor Watson was ruled out with a groin injury.

He has been replaced in the halves by Jack Cogger.

The only other change is Herman Ese'ese dropping to the bench with Josh King starting.
