Coach Brian Smith has named a largely unchanged line-up for this Sunday night's clash against the Broncos at EnergyAustralia Stadium.
Reegan Tanner and Adam MacDougall have been named on an extended 6-man bench, with MacDougall looking to make his return from a hamstring injury that kept him out of the team that scored a one-point win against the Rabbitohs last Sunday.
The Knights have named halfback Jarrod Mullen at number 18, most likely resting the number 7 jersey out of respect for the recently retired Andrew Johns, whose 14 season career will be celebrated this week as the people of Newcastle say farewell and thank you to their champion halfback.
