Squad Update // Mann out

nib Newcastle Knights Head Coach Adam O'Brien has reduced his 21-man squad ahead of Friday night's huge Round 2 clash with the Warriors.

Kurt Mann and Dom Young come out of the side this week, with the former succumbing to a knee complaint he picked up in Round 1.

Phoenix Crossland will start his first game of the year at five-eighth, while Pasami Saulo and Gehamat Shibasaki are the remaining players on the extended bench.

The team will be confirmed one hour prior to kick-off.
