The Knights have suffered a blow ahead of their clash with the Warriors, with James McManus ruled out of the trip to New Zealand.
His place will be taken by Kevin Naiqama.
Neville Costigan returns from a bicep injury, while Robbie Rochow and Marvin Filipo retained their places on an extended bench.
Naiqama was one of the Knights’ stars when Newcastle beat the Eels in Round 17.
“He comes to the fullback, and steps him, Hindmarsh gives chase, Hindy won’t get there.”
McManus scored two tries in the Knights’ win over Manly, but also suffered a fractured eye socket.
He’ll have surgery next week and is expected to be out for at least a month.
