Squad Update: Young named to play

nib Newcastle Knights NRL Head Coach Adam O'Brien has reduced his squad to 19 for Sunday's clash with the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs at McDonald Jones Stadium.

In two late changes, Dom Young returns from a rib injury on the wing for Hymel Hunt while Simi Sasagi comes in for Edrick Lee.

Jake Clifford and Krystian Mapapalangi remain on the extended bench.

The team will be confirmed one hour prior to kick-off.

This round is Women in League Round as we celebrate those who are re-writing the story of Rugby League. From the coaches, the mums or dads doing the drop-offs, volunteers in the canteen, the women scoring on the field or the fans on the sidelines.

Knights players will wear the Women in League jersey to demonstrate their dedication to the ongoing growth of women's involvement on and off the field.
