The Late Mail: Knights v Broncos

Newcastle Knights v Brisbane Broncos

Newcastle Knights v Brisbane Broncos

Knights: Big changes for the Knights with Kalyn Ponga failing to back up after Origin II; his absence sees Kurt Mann start at fullback and Mason Lino come in to the halves. David Klemmer returns at starting prop from a fractured wrist sustained in Origin I; as a result James Gavet shift to the bench and Pasami Saulo omitted from the final 17.

Broncos: No personnel changes to the team named on Tuesday, however there has been strong speculation that Anthony Milford will switch to fullback with Darius Boyd to start in the halves for the first time in a premiership match.
