Knights v Bulldogs Round 13 NRL team list

nib Newcastle Knights Head Coach Adam O'Brien has named his 22-man squad for their Round 13 clash against the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs at McDonald Jones Stadium this Friday night. 

In team news, Krystian Mapapalangi earns his first appearance of the season, replacing Bradman Best (hamstring) in the centres.

Daniel Saifiti re-joins the squad after serving a one match suspension in Round 11.

Fresh off the bye, the squad will be eager to return home to the Hunter faithful and chase five straight wins. Tickets available here.

The side will also wear their 2024 Indigenous Round jersey on Friday night.

Designed by renowned Newcastle and Hunter Region artist Saretta Fielding, the artwork is titled ‘Powaikaliko Piriraal Malang’, which means ‘Grow Strong Together’ which shares the story of the Knights family, reflecting a commitment to grow through connecting with communities and countries whilst bringing acknowledgement to the Awabakal, Worimi and Wonnarua peoples.
