Knights named for Trailfinders test.
24th November 2017
The Knights have rung the changes ahead of tomorrow’s clash with Ealing Trailfinders.
In the backs former England U20s international Cameron Cowell makes his Knights debut on dual-registration from Newcastle Falcons having been training with the squad for the past few weeks. Curtis Wilson makes his return from suspension to face off against his former club on the left wing.
Charlie Foley continues to prove his value in a range of positions, this week lining up outside Lloyd Hayes in midfield. The half backs are unchanged from last weekend with Tom James and Declan Cusack continuing at nine and ten.
Upfront Owen Evans gets the nod at loose head in a rotated front row that sees Joe Sproston at tight head and Sale youngster Curtis Langdon at hooker.
Matt Challinor makes his 201st appearance in the second row alongside Morgan Eames. Captain Michael Hills lines up in his usual position of openside flanker with Jason Hill starting at no. 8 and Alex Shaw on the blindside.
Ben Hunter, Colin Quigley and Jack Bergmanas provide a wealth of front row experience on the bench with new boy back row Stone Priestley-Nangle set for his Knights debut on loan from Hull Ionians.
Michael Heaney and Simon Humberstone provide cover to the half backs and complete the match day twenty-two.
