Knights: Lachlan Fitzgibbon has been promoted to the starting side an hour before kick-off. Mitch Barnett moves into the middle and pushes Connor Watson to the bench with Josh King dropping out of the side. Phoenix Crossland is 18th man.

Mitchell Pearce said on Tuesday "unless something drastic happens" at a final training run on Wednesday he was a certain starter for the clash.

Hooker Jayden Brailey has been rested so Chris Randall called into the starting side.

Starford To'a and Jack Johns were the first two players cut from the squad 24 hours before kick-off.

The Knights have won their past three games against the Broncos.

Broncos: On Wednesday, Broncos coach Kevin Walters said Albert Kelly would come onto the bench and is likely to take on back-up hooker duties with TC Robati the man to drop out of the 17. Robati is 18th man and David Mead was the last player cut an hour before kick-off.

Danny Levi was successful at the NRL judiciary on Tuesday night to beat a dangerous contact charge but he was never going to miss any game time regardless of the outcome.

Levi replaces Jake Turpin (ankle) at hooker against his former side while Jesse Arthars comes in for the injured Kotoni Staggs.

Xavier Coates and Anthony Milford were omitted from the extended squad on Wednesday.

The Broncos are aiming for back-to-back wins for the first time since the opening rounds of 2020.
