Knights v Bulldogs Round 23 NRL team list

nib Newcastle Knights Head Coach, Adam O'Brien, has named his 21-man squad for Saturday night's clash with the Bulldogs at Cbus Super Stadium.

With representative forwards Daniel Saifiti (knee) and Tyson Frizell (suspended) unavailable for the clash, David Klemmer and Brodie Jones have been drafted into the starting squad.

This opens up bench places for Josh King and Jirah Momoisea, who will make his NRL debut and become Newcastle Knight #329.

Chris Randall will also play his third game of the season, coming onto the bench in place of Simi Sasagi, who shuffles back to the reserves.

The remainder of the squad is unchanged from the one which beat Cronulla last week.
