Late Mail: Brown shakes-up spine and bench

nib Newcastle Knights coach Nathan Brown has confirmed his Round 23 NRL team for Saturday's match against Penrith at Panthers stadium.

Kalyn Ponga shifts from fullback and into five-eighth which sees Nick Meaney come into the side at fullback.

Jack Cogger drops out of the team.

The change to the spine isn't the only switch Brown has made with Chris Heighington rested for the game and JJ Felise playing ISP NSW earlier in the day.

That means Luke Yates and Josh King have joined the bench.
