Bulldogs v Knights Round 18 NRL Team List

nib Newcastle Knights Head Coach Adam O'Brien has named his 22-man squad for our clash against the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs at Accor Stadium this Sunday afternoon. 

There has been two changes made to the team from last round.

Dane Gagai (foot) has withdrawn with an injury. Enari Tuala comes into the centres to replace the veteran outside-back.

Lachlan Fitzgibbon returns to the second-row after sitting out the previous round due to a Category One concussion while Dylan Lucas moves back to the extended bench.

The Newcastle Knights will join the NRL and Club legend Mark Hughes to help tackle brain cancer with the annual Beanie for Brain Cancer Round, in support of the Mark Hughes Foundation.

Entering its seventh season, the Foundation hopes to sell its one millionth beanie during this weekend's round of games.
