The nib Newcastle Knights have named Tex Hoy in the No.6 to face St George Illawarra this weekend.
Hosting the Dragons on Sunday, Hoy remains in the starting side, moving from fullback to five-eighth, to accommodate the return of Kalyn Ponga.
Ponga, Hymel Hunt, Phoenix Crossland and Mitch Barnett rejoin the team after a week off.
D-Saf: Disappointment, bouncing back and Old Boys Day
Coach Adam O'Brien - brought to you by Allara Learning - has picked Hunt in the centres with Gehamat Shibasaki coming out of the squad.
Kurt Mann will miss the match as a result of a one-week suspension and is replaced by Chris Randall in the No.9 jersey.
Barnett slots back into lock, while Crossland comes back onto the bench.
