nib Newcastle Knights Head Coach Adam O'Brien has named his 21-man squad to take on the Cronulla Sharks this Friday at McDonald Jones Stadium.
In big news, Cessnock junior Brayden Musgrove will make his NRL debut on the wing, becoming Newcastle Knight #324 in our clash with the Sharks.
Bradman Best and Kurt Mann return to the 17 this week, bringing welcome to relief following an injury-ravaged period.
Connor Watson returns to lock forward, clearing the way for Mann to slot back into the No.6 jumper.
Phoenix Crossland has also been named in the 21-man squad following an extended stint on the sidelines.
