Dolphins v Knights Round 8 NRL team list

nib Newcastle Knights Head Coach Adam O'Brien has named his 22-man squad for their Anzac Round clash against the Dolphins at Suncorp Stadium this Sunday afternoon.

Prop, Jacob Saifiti, is set to notch a special milestone this weekend when he runs out for his 150th game for the Club.

The forward made his NRL debut back in 2016 alongside his twin brother Daniel, with J-Saf now set to join D-Saf past the 150 game milestone for the red and blue.

In team news, Coach O'Brien has named 23-year-old fullback David Armstrong to replace Kalyn Ponga in the No.1 jersey.

The Mungindi Grasshoppers junior is set to become Knight #349 on Sunday earning his opportunity in the top grade.

Dane Gagai is included in the centres and has been named to partner Jayden Brailey as Co-Captains against the Dolphins.

Furthermore, Jed Cartwright replaces Jack Hetherington in the 17 after Hetherington accepted a one-game suspension for a contrary conduct charge following Round 7.
