Newcastle Knights coach Nathan Brown has named his mandatory 21-man squad to face the St George Illawarra Dragons at McDonald Jones Stadium on Sunday, April 7.

Injury and form have dictated plenty of changes to the Knights following their last start loss to the Canberra Raiders.

Kalyn Ponga will start his first game at fullback in season 2019, with Kurt Mann shifting to the bench and Mason Lino named at five-eighth for his club debut. Daniel Saifiti also replaces James Gavet on the interchange.
