Panthers v Knights Round 7 NRL team list

nib Newcastle Knights Head Coach Adam O'Brien has named his 21-man squad to take on the Penrith Panthers this Thursday night at BlueBet Stadium.

Hymel Hunt has succumbed to a hamstring complaint and will not take part in the clash.

Starford To'a returns to the team in his place.

Lachlan Fitzgibbon is also absent from the squad travelling to the foot of the mountains as he works to come back from a shoulder injury.

The remainder of the squad is unchanged from the one which beat the Sharks 26-22 last Friday.
