Welcome to Hunter Stadium for the first time in 2014 - We have a clash between two first round losers in Newcastle and Canberra thus both will be looking to get off the mark tonight. The Knights were disappointing in losing to Penrith while Canberra were pegged back in the second half against the North Queensland side.

TEAM NEWS for tonight's clash in Newcastle has the Knights bringing in debutant Matt Minto at fullback in place of Kurt Gidley. Gids shifts to hooker with Travis Waddell dropping back to the bench. Jake Mamo and David Fa'alogo are surplus to requirements and played earlier today in NYC and NSW Cup respectively.
Canberra, meanwhile, are unchanged.
