Halves headache: Who wears No.7 if Pearce is ruled out?

Nathan Brown could be on the hunt for another half.

With Mitchell Pearce suffering a nasty cork over the weekend, the halfback is in doubt for next week's game.

With Connor Watson highly unlikely to overcome a groin injury in time for the game, Jack Cogger is the front runner to retain his place in the halves but who would slot in for Pearce?

Does the door open for Kalyn Ponga to make a move into he halves and Nick Meaney cover fullback or perhaps it means Brock Lamb could be set for an NRL recall?

INJURY UPDATE: WATSON UNLIKELY FOR WARRIORS


KNIGHTS NUMBERS: LEADER BY EXAMPLE

"I've only seen half of reserve grade, so I haven't seen enough of that one yet to see if Brock's earned the right to play first grade again," Brown said of Lamb.

"We're not in the business of giving away first grade jumpers anymore at this Club. So, whether he played well enough, they had a good win though which is great, so we'll have to check that out.

"I don't think Connor will be fit so if Mitch is not playing, we'll certainly be looking for something there."

Sadly, for the Knights, they're unlikely to get any troops back for next week.

Already missing Tautau Moga and Slade Griffin for the season, Jacob Saifiti is also nursing a shoulder, while Nathan Ross (groin) and Jacob Lillyman (abdominal) are also unlikely to feature.

When pressed on whether the Club could get anyone back to face the Warriors Brown said; "probably doubtful."
