Knights v Broncos Round 25 NRL team list

nib Newcastle Knights Head Coach, Adam O'Brien, has named his 21 man squad for Saturday afternoon's clash with Brisbane at Suncorp Stadium.

For the final round of the season, O'Brien has opted to rest a number of his troops ahead of next week's elimination final.

Hymel Hunt, Jacob Saifiti, Jayden Brailey and Mitch Barnett will have the opportunity to recharge with seventh spot on the table wrapped up.

Starford To'a comes onto the wing in Hunt's place for his first game since Round 13, while Chris Randall will be given an opportunity in the No.9 jumper.

Brodie Jones shuffles into the starting side, allowing Phoenix Crossland to slot into the No.14 utility role.

Jack Johns also returns to the 17, while Jirah Momoisea will play his third game on the bounce ahead of the finals.
