Players’ Player of the Year, Akuila Uate will be looking to inspire a home win as Newcastle strive for a place in the Top
8. The Flying Fijian is 8.00 with Sportingbet to score the first try of the match and add to his five tries in six starts
so far this season.
Knights’ will be boosted by the return of captain Kurt Gidley who has recovered from
surgery on his right knee and will replace youngster Tyrone Roberts at half-back. Wes Naiqama made an appearance in last
weekend’s NSW Cup after being sidelined since Round 3 with a torn cartilage in his knee and will replace Junior
Sa’u in the centres.
Former NSW and Australia forward Willie Mason is set to make his NRL comeback with the
Knights. Mason returned after an absence of 597 days to punch out 57 minutes against Illawarra in the 36-18 NSW Cup win and is
ready to steamroll the Panthers on Monday.
Penrith are coming off the back of a 30-0 loss at home to the Wests
Tigers and have failed to score a point in the last two games. That could be about to change with the return of Michael
Jennings who, like Uate, has scored 5 tries from 6 appearances this season. Jennings is 11.00 with Sportingbet to celebrate his
comeback with the opening try of the match.
Brad Tighe will move out to the wing to make way fro Jennings while
Clint Newton starts on the bench to allow Danny Galea in the second row. Travis Burns has been given the all clear after
suffering a knock on the head and continues to fill in for the absent Kevin Kingston.
