Sea Eagles v Knights Round 19 NRL team list

nib Newcastle Knights Head Coach Adam O'Brien has named his 22-man squad for their Round 19 clash against the Manly-Warringah Sea Eagles at 4 Pines Park this Sunday afternoon.

With a number of players unavailable due to State of Origin duties, O'Brien has named a new-look squad set to head south to the Northern Beaches.

Kalyn Ponga, Dane Gagai and Bradman Best come out of the backline, with Fletcher Sharpe returning to fullback in his skipper's absence.

Tom Cant will make his first appearance of the year in the centres, making up a new-look centre pairing with Dylan Lucas.
