nib Newcastle Knights fullback Kalyn Ponga has been ruled out of this weekend's clash with the Warriors at McDonald Jones Stadium.
Unfortunately, Ponga hasn't been able to achieve the training intensity and volume required to return to play.
Next week's representative round and subsequent week off will be utilised for Kalyn to continue his rehabilitation process and reassess an achievable return to play timeline.
The team will be updated at tomorrow afternoon's 24-hour squad update.
