The nib Newcastle Knights have named their squad for our trial match in Cessnock against the Goannas on Saturday.
Cessnock juniors Brodie Jones and Brayden Musgrove will turn out against their former Club, while Jack Johns and Dominic Young will wear the red and blue for the first time.
Naming a 31-man squad for the first hit-out of the pre-season, plenty of Round One hopefuls will see some game time after sweating it out in a brutal pre-season campaign.
