PANTHERS NRL v KNIGHTS: Hunter Stadium, Sunday 11th May. Kickoff: 2.00pm
Ivan Cleary has named a near full strength side for Sunday’s clash against the Knights at Hunter Stadium. The only change from previous weeks is the promotion of Tyrone Peachey to the starting line-up for Elijah Taylor who suffered a knee injury in the Sharks game two weeks ago.
Tim Grant suffered a calf strain at training and will have a couple of weeks off.

Garth Brennan will field a full strength side on Saturday against Newcastle, with the exception of Dallin Watene-Zelezniak who has injured his foot. In a case of perfect timing, Kieran Moss returns from a long stint with the rehab training group after a knee injury, and will replace him at fullback.
Luke Capewell and Isaac John will pair up in the halves, and new recruit Ben Murdoch-Masila will start in the second row after a successful Panthers debut last weekend.
