    Newcastle Knights

    • Mitch Barnett (shoulder, running, no contact – round 1)
    • Tautau Moga (shoulder, running, no contact – round 1)
    • Dylan Phythian (ACL, running, no contact – round 6)
    • Nathan Ross (ankle, fit for trials)
    • Daniel Saifiti (shoulder, running, no contact – round 1)
    • Luke Yates (ankle, round 1)

    Mitch Barnett, Daniel Saifiti and Tautau Moga continue to be on restricted duties following shoulder reconstructions but remain on track for the opening round of the season against Manly. Dylan Phythian started change of direction running and the medical team have pencilled him in for a round six return. Nathan Ross (elbow), Jack Johns (broken arm), Luke Yates and Cory Denniss (both ankle) have returned to full training following minor surgeries.

    That's mostly good news, as well as expected or hoped for.

    Touch wood. The last few years have been a disaster for a team who could not afford injuries..
