Newcastle fullback David Seage has been named for his NRL comeback against the New Zealand Warriors on Sunday after overcoming a hamstring injury.
Seage returns after four weeks on the sidelines and will be a welcome boost to the Knights, who were without a specialist fullback for two games - both losses - before last week's much-needed bye. First choice custodian Milton Thaiday is also only one or two weeks away from returning to action from an ankle injury.
Seage's return means makeshift fullback Kurt Gidley will shift back to five-eighth.
Knights: David Seage, Brian Carney, Matthew Gidley, George Carmont, Anthony Quinn, Kurt Gidley, Andrew Johns (c), Craig Smith, Danny Buderus, Josh Perry, Steve Simpson, Clint Newton, Reegan Tanner
Interchange: Luke Davico, Adam Woolnough, Todd Lowrie, Riley Brown, Kirk Reynoldson (one to be omitted).
