NYC Head Coach Anthony Barnes has named his 23-man squad ahead of a tough top 8 clash with the Newcastle Knights on Friday afternoon in the Holden Cup.

There are a couple of changes to the side that were on the road in a loss to the Broncos in Round 6. 

Sean O'Sullivan returns to the starting line-up at the halfback position, which sees Jesse Marschke at hooker and Ben Marshcke on the extended bench. 

Josh Curran returns from injury in the second row, Ben Thomas shuffles to the bench and Victor Radley is named as Captain at the lock position.
