Adam Hartigan has named his side for this Saturday Knight's clash with Newcastle at Allianz Stadium in Round 14 of the Holden Cup competition, with the Head Coach making three changes to the side due to the unavailability of players through NRL promotion and representative duty.
SG Ball playmaker Travis Edwards has been called into the side at 5/8 in the absence of Nene Macdonald, who has been called into the NRL squad in the absence of outside backs Daniel Tupou and Michael Jennings through NSW Origin duty.
Fellow SG Ball star Chevy Ellis has also been named, in what will be his first appearance in the Holden Cup competition, in the absence of his U18s Skipper Paul Momirovski who has been selected in the NSW U18s side for their clash with Queensland in the curtain-raiser to Game II of the 2014 State of Origin Series.
Hooker Grant Garvey will also miss this weekend's clash with the Knights after being selected alongside Momirovski in the NSW side. Garvey's place at dummy-half has been taken by Skipper Alex Thomas, who returns after two weeks out with injury.
Momirovski and Garvey are two of four Roosters to be named in the Blues U18s side with Latrell Mitchell and Jackson Hastings also announced as a part of the squad. [CLICK HERE] for more information on the U18s Origin clash.
