Knights v Raiders Round 4 NRL Team List

nib Newcastle Knights Head Coach Adam O'Brien has named his 22-man squad for our battle against the Canberra Raiders this Sunday afternoon at McDonald Jones Stadium. 

Hooker Jayden Brailey returns from concussion to lead the Knights out on home soil for the first time this year, along with hard working lock Kurt Mann who missed the Wests Tigers and Dolphins clashes due a shoulder tear.

Powerful winger Greg Marzhew will make his Knights debut, becoming player No. 343 and the ninth Club debutant this season.

O’Brien’s squad includes several players with injury concerns, medical staff will use the longer turnaround to give them every chance to take the field on Sunday.

The extended squad is a mixture of players fighting for NRL spots and players returning from injury, plus some young debutants backing up after strong debuts in the red and blue jersey.

This week 50 /50 raffle partner is Jennys Place, a not-for-profit community-based service established in Newcastle in 1977, providing direct relief and support to women and children who are experiencing domestic violence and / or homelessness.

Gates and fan zone open at McDonald Jones Stadium at 11:15am. Jersey Flegg v Raiders kicks off at 11.30am, followed by NSW Cup Knights v Raiders at 1.35pm.
